Abstract

Trade Liberalization effects on Agricultural Production Growth: The Case of Sri Lanka This paper examines the trade policy impacts on agricultural productivity in Sri Lanka based on the national data from 1960 to 2010. The empirical results suggest that the trade liberalization improved agricultural productivity and confirm that Free Trade Agreement is not a significant determinant on agricultural productivity in Sri Lanka.
