Abstract

The WTO Ministerial Conference meeting in Seattle, USA in November/December 1999 failed to launch a further round of trade negotiations. However, negotiations on further liberalisation of agricultural trade were mandated in the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture and must still be anticipated. This paper reviews the issues which the agricultural negotiators will grapple with under the headings of market access, export subsidies and domestic supports as well as some more generic negotiating issues of relevance to agricultural trade.
