Domestic Support Issues in the Uruguay Round and Beyond


  • Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.


The Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture provides commitments in three areas: market access, export competition and domestic support. The introduction of domestic support discipline along with the discipline on border measures in an agreement governing international trade was a path-breaking step.This report explains the domestic support provisions of the Agreement on Agriculture, concentrating on the Aggregate Measurement of Support (AMS) and the so-called "green box". It examines the representation of Canada's domestic support in accordance with the Agreement, and discusses possibilities for further discipline on domestic support.
