Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to empirically investigate how agricultural protection has been reduced before/after the implementation of the Uruguay Round Agreement on 1995 in East Asian countries. Our empirical results show that the reduction on agricultural protection in the second half of the 1990s is not outstanding, compared with that in the first half of the 1990s. This result implies that the UR Agreement does not substantially succeed in reducing the protection for agricultural trade in East Asia.
