Potential Impact of the WTO Doha Round on Swiss Agriculture
The article analyzes the potential impact of the WTO Doha Round on Swiss agriculture by means of a general equilibrium model. Assuming a repetition of the Uruguay Round as anticipated outcome the raw milk output is reduced. The analysis shows that all imminent changes on Swiss agriculture like the bilateral contracts between Switzerland and the European Union lead to strong reductions of both raw milk producer price and agricultural income. As a conclusion, the Doha Round has a relatively modest impact on Swiss agriculture if all imminent changes will have been implemented by then.
