The Economic Analysis of Tariff Reform in Egypt


Author Info

  • Lord, Montague J.


The study examines key trade policy and customs reform issues that need to be addressed as part of the Government of Egypt's comprehensive Economic Reform and Structural Adjustment Program. The initial findings of this study point to the need for additional reforms in areas related to the tariff structure, customs regulations and procedures, export promotion, competitiveness, adjustments to the new WTO agreement, and working capital access. The internal consistency of these trade policy and customs reforms required consideration of the linkage to macroeconomic policy and the liberalization of the domestic market. The effectiveness of reforms in Egypt are shown to depend on their impact on the economic efficiency at the firm level, and on the degree to which they introduce greater international competitiveness.
