Abstract

This paper estimates the impact of preferential trade arrangements (PTAs) on relative prices and supplied quantity of a representative nontradable agricultural product, Maiz Amilaceo, produced in the four poorest regions of Peru, located in the Sierra Sur for the period 1971-2005. Two key results are on the one hand, PTAs affect (statistically and significantly) in a greater proportion more on relative prices than on supplied quantity. On the other hand, differences in PTAs affects differently to prices and output. Trading partners granting preferences concessions to Peru, affect positively on prices and quantities of the non tradable agricultural product. Contrarily, reciprocal and discriminatory preferences and/or unilateral liberalizations affect negatively to relative prices and ambiguously (in statistics significance and sign) to quantities of the non tradable agricultural product.
