Tariff Rate Quotas in Agriculture

The WTO agreement converted many quotas and other market access barriers to tariff rate quotas (TRQ’s), with the idea that these prohibitive tariffs would be reduced over time. However, the agreement did not include detailed provisions for administration of TRQ’s. This conference was designed to examine early experience with TRQ’s, how they were being administered and how they were impacting trade flows. Farm Foundation worked with IATRC to commission a series of papers on TRQ’s which appeared in the April 2000 edition of the Agricultural and Resource Economics Review
