Politique Commerciale Et Negociations Agricoles Du Riz Au Cameroun : Une Totale Faisabilite
[Trade Policy And Agricultural Negotiations Of Rice Cameroon: An Overall Feasibility]
AbstractAppreciated for its culinary qualities, rice has become very important in the diets of households in Cameroon. The rice market is generally found Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese. But where is the rice Cameroon? The central objective is to identify trade policy tools to implement in Cameroon to meet the ambitions that the region is fixed in its Common Agricultural Policy. Determine which trade policy tools related to TEC / CEMAC would be more appropriate to stimulate production and promote regional trade. The methodology combines qualitative and quantitative analysis. The reference period is 2005 with support from the spinneret method that extends from 2006-2016. The final choice in instrument protection is primarily political and should reflect the need for coherence between the protective measures and the objective of food sovereignty defined at the sectoral agricultural policy in the region. Now exposed to strong competition and often unfair, it is difficult for operators to Central Africa to make the investments necessary to develop the agricultural sector. At the end of our analysis, we suggest that to increase the supply of rice in Cameroon should develop a tariff rate of 50% compliance with the WTO clause. The model showed that the TSI has a very positive impact on rice, with an increase in revenue of 14% to the producer and the production of 6%.
