Incidence du processus multilatÃ©ral sur la viabilitÃ© des accords prÃ©fÃ©rentiels : le cas euromÃ©diterranÃ©en
AbstractSignatory countries of the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture (URAA) had to reduce their import tariffs for agricultural products under the most favoured nation (MFN) clause. Many of these countries had concluded bilateral trade agreements enabling them to benefit from preferential market access. It is the case of the Mediterranean countries which signed agreements with the European Union (EU). The decrease in MFN tariffs initiated by the URAA is likely to be greater at the end of the forthcoming negotiations. This may induce an erosion of the preferences granted by the EU to Mediterranean countries and have adverse effects on their agricultural exports. We focus on the consequences of a decrease in EU MFN tariffs on Mediterranean agricultural exports.
