Committee, November 2004 Brazil Case (Dispute Settlement 267):  Brazil Case (Dispute Settlement 267) U.S. Support Levels from 1999-2002 Exceeded 1992 Base U.S. Violated the Peace Clause Direct Payments NOT Green b/c of Planting Exclusion for Fruits and Vegetables U.S. Cotton Support Caused Lower Prices (marketing loan, Step 2, MLA & CCP) “Serious Prejudice”-Brazil Suffered Economic Damage Export Credit & Step 2 are prohibited export subsidies; Step 2 is import substitution policy WTO Domestic Support Classification:  WTO Domestic Support Classification Green Box: Decoupled, Non-trade Distorting Exple: CRP Amber Box: Trade Distorting Policies Marketing Loan Payments AND Direct Payments Counter-Cyclical Payments Blue Box: Trade Distorting Production Limiting Programs Acreage Set-Asides Used by European Union U.S. currently has no Blue Box programs Framing the Cotton/WTO Issue:  Framing the Cotton/WTO Issue U.S. v. Developing Countries, where cotton case may/may not set a precedent for other U.S. farm program crops E.U. v. U.S., where Europeans play up cotton as a smokescreen Cotton situation may be part of a larger reformist thrust in U.S. farm policy Slide12:  Step 2 Elimination (Reuters) The U.S. House of Representatives last Wednesday gave final congressional approval to elimination of Step 2, fulfilling a promise made at world trade talks. Under the bill sent to President George W. Bush on a 216-214 vote, the Step 2 program would end on Aug. 1, 2006 when the current marketing year ends. Step 2 gives exporters and millers an incentive to purchase higher-priced U.S. cotton. For the past week, the payment was 2.69 cents per pound. Hong Kong Cotton Verbiage:  Hong Kong Cotton Verbiage All forms of export subsidies for cotton will be eliminated by developed countries in 2006. Trade-distorting domestic subsidies for cotton production will be more quickly and ambitiously reduced than the general formula to be agreed. The modalities for domestic support will be implemented over a shorter period of time than that generally applicable for agriculture. On market access, developed countries will give duty and quota free access for cotton exports from least-developed countries (LDCs) from the commencement of the implementation period. [It is recognized that the objective is that, as an outcome for the negotiations, trade distorting domestic subsidies for cotton production should be reduced more ambitiously than under whatever general formula is agreed and that it should be implemented over a shorter period of time than generally applicable. We will commit ourselves to give priority in the negotiations to reach such an outcome.] Slide14:  A Few Assumptions for 2006/07 Expected U.S. yield is based on previous five year average -- including 813 lb/ac estimate for 2005/06 U.S. planted acres is assumed to be roughly the same as previous year, reflecting a small amount of switching to corn and soybeans in some places, offset by more cotton in northern panhandle U.S. abandonment is assumed to be 8% (i.e., West Texas will have a more normal year) U.S. mill use and exports are assumed to be 2% less from previous year due to trends in U.S. mill use and effect of losing Step 2 Foreign production is assumed to be the slightly higher (+2%) due to a relatively profitable world prices (i.e., A-index >50 cents/lb) inducing at least the same number of foreign acreage, and upward trends in foreign yields Foreign exports are assumed to increase with mill use up 2% compared to previous year from relatively high prices of synthetic fiber and upward trend in foreign cotton use Resolution of U.S./China textile trade dispute, average production conditions, and no U.S. recession due from energy-induced shocks Weekly Step 2 Certificate Values:  Weekly Step 2 Certificate Values Source: NCC Slide16:  Supply effects dominate Small export impacts, w/ smaller equity offers Slide17:  Step 2 Elimination Impacts ICAC study of shows little correlation between weekly shipments of U.S. raw cotton and the weekly Step 2 payment There were some sporadic exceptions to the economist’s findings, the result of studying data dating back to 1996-97, when payments became effective on the date of shipment. Extreme spikes in Step 2 payments would cause spikes in shipments in anticipation of steep declines in payments during forthcoming weeks. However, averaged over several months, payments and shipments show no correlation. Study showed significant determinants of U.S. exports were levels of foreign use and excess U.S. supply (of suitable quality fiber) Compliance Issues:  Compliance Issues U.S. Options on Marketing Loan, CCP in the next 12-15 months: Do Nothing? (Our current default position) Brazil Could Impose Tariffs, e.g., Brazil has applied to WTO to impose $3 billion Partial Compliance? Arbitrate & Compensate Brazil Could Impose Tariffs Full Compliance? Farm Program Changes Marketing Impacts:  Marketing Impacts Even if loss of Step 2 results in reduced exports in 2006/07, this effect is minimal compared to effect of U.S. supply. ICAC study essentially says same thing Potential changes to the cotton marketing loan program and payment limits provisions have more potential to create significant supply responses
