Sample text

Developing countries should focus their attention on eliminating tariffs and quotas on tropical products, processed foods, and other commodities they export or for which they have high export elasticities with respect to price. Elimination of cotton subsidies would raise producer prices for cotton but have a small effect on standards of living in developing countries as a result of the small increase in the price of cloth. Similarly, subsidies for crops that are disproportionately consumed by the nonpoor will have the least adverse distributional effects.

However, in addition to these “efficiency gains,” developing countries have important export interests in further liberalization of services (OECD 2004). Many developing countries have capitalized on their comparative advantage in low-skill services to develop competent and highly specialized industries. Examples are maritime services, including port services and the shipping industry; construction services; and back-office services, including data processing, call centers, and financial services.

In addition, the proposed agenda’s new issues may have made life worse for developing countries. The United States wanted capital market liberalization as part of the investment agreement, even though the weight of evidence showed that capital market liberalization did not promote growth but did increase instability. Rather than creating a true competitive environment—hindering use of dumping duties as protectionist devices—there was fear that the new items on the agenda might restrict the opportunity of nations to pursue their own development policies.
