Recent Trade Outcomes and Implications for the World Dairy Industry:  Recent Trade Outcomes and Implications for the World Dairy Industry Andrew L. Stoler Executive Director Institute for International Business, Economics & Law The University of Adelaide Dairy Trade Policy Post-WTO:  Dairy Trade Policy Post-WTO Aftermath of the Uruguay Round Bilateral Trade Developments WTO’s Doha Round of Trade Negotiations Prospects for the Future Uruguay Round Targets:  Uruguay Round Targets WTO Secretariat Aftermath of the Uruguay Round:  Aftermath of the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture made a start in global reform process But loophole provisions and lack of rigid discipline have often allowed WTO Members to meet AOA requirements without reducing overall level of support. At end-2002, PSE for agriculture in Japan, EU and USA was nearly as high as in pre-”reform” 1986-88 period* * abare Post – UR Policy Mix in Major Players:  Post – UR Policy Mix in Major Players Most major players in the global dairy sector continue to maintain a complex policy mix in support of exports and limitation of imports. Major instruments employed: Domestic Support: Income and price supports Market Access: TRQs and Tariffs Export Competition: Export subsidies Slide6:  USDA - ERS Slide7:  USDA - ERS Slide8:  USDA-ERS Slide9:  USDA-ERS * Not for drinking milk Tariff & TRQ Impact on Dairy:  Tariff & TRQ Impact on Dairy Tariff-only countries generally impose 15-60% range Out-of-quota TRQ tariff rates: European Union -> 100%+ United States -> 60-70% Canada -> 200%+ Mexico -> 125-130% Substantial opportunities for liberalisation abare Other TRQ Issues:  Other TRQ Issues Tariff Quota Access Cheese access in EU <2% of consumption Cheese access in USA <4% of consumption But nearly ¼ of internationally-traded cheese moves through TRQ channels Quota “Underfill” abare speculates underfill arises out of other NTMs like quota administration, STEs or other problems since the economic incentive to fill quota is strong. abare Big Distortions in Export Trade:  Big Distortions in Export Trade Percentages of global trade in dairy subsidized are significant: 35% of full cream milk powder 30% of skim milk powder 27% of butter And the subsidies’ impact is important: Average subsidy applied to US Skim Milk Powder exports amounted to 44% of the average domestic market price. abare Bilateral Trade Developments - Global:  Bilateral Trade Developments - Global Pre-WTO (1995) > 124 PTAs notified to GATT Year-end 2003 > 250+ PTAs Currently 40-50 under active negotiation Of 148 WTO Members only 2 not now in a PTA Dairy Trade Liberalization in PTAs:  Dairy Trade Liberalization in PTAs While WTO negotiations have slowed, some progress is being made in liberalising restrictions on dairy trade through PTAs. Recent Examples: Chile – USA Free Trade Agreement Australia – Thailand CER FTA Australia – USA Free Trade Agreement Chile-USA FTA Dairy Provisions:  Chile-USA FTA Dairy Provisions 12-year phase-out of TRQ and tariff restrictions for cheese, milk powder, butter, condensed milk and other dairy products. In-quota amounts expanded by 7% p.a. then unlimited in year 12 Out-of-quota rates stay at base rate level through year 7 and then 5 equal stages of reduction to tariff elimination in year 12. USTR Australia – Thailand CER FTA:  Australia – Thailand CER FTA Immediate elimination of Thai tariffs on infant formula, lactose, casein and milk albumin. Phased tariff elimination (to 2010) for butterfat, milkfood, yoghurt, dairy spreads & ice cream Phased tariff elimination (to 2020) for butter, cheese, other milk powders and concentrates Immediate additional quota for Australia of 2,200 tonnes for skim milk powder and 120 tonnes for liquid milk and cream – expanding by 17% at five-yearly intervals to 2025 when all tariffs and quotas will be eliminated. DFAT Australia – USA FTA:  Australia – USA FTA Significant increases in in-quota volumes permitted in year one of the agreement (2005) Differentiated (by product) growth rates for in-quota TRQ volumes In-quota TRQ tariffs to zero on all products Out-of quota tariffs unchanged Tariffs on non-TRQ dairy products to be eliminated – most in equal annual instalments over 18 years DFAT USTR TRQ Growth Under AUSFTA:  TRQ Growth Under AUSFTA DFAT WTO Doha Round Objectives for Agriculture:  WTO Doha Round Objectives for Agriculture 2001 Ministerial Declaration (Para 13): “substantial improvements in market access” “reductions of, with a view to phasing out, all forms of export subsidies” “substantial reductions in trade-distorting domestic support” July 31, 2004 Framework Text:  July 31, 2004 Framework Text Builds on Doha Declaration & intervening developments: Failure of “Harbinson text” in March, 2003 US-EU August 2003 text G-20 text (August 2003) Derbez text (produced at failed Cancun Ministerial) “substantial improvements in market access…”:  “substantial improvements in market access…” Progressivity through deeper cuts in higher tariffs (P.29) Substantial improvement through combinations of tariff quota commitments and tariff reductions applying to each product. (P.33) A base for tariff quota expansion will be established. (P.34) BUT Members may designate a negotiated number of tariff lines to be treated as “sensitive” (P.31) “reductions of, with a view to phasing out, all forms of export subsidies…”:  “reductions of, with a view to phasing out, all forms of export subsidies…” Agreement to set modalities ensuring parallel elimination of all forms of export subsidies by a credible end date. (P.17) Modalities to provide for disciplining or elimination of export subsidies and range of measures with equivalent effect, such as certain export credit arrangements, trade-distorting practices of exporting STEs and certain forms of food aid. (P.18) “substantial reductions in trade-distorting domestic support…”:  “substantial reductions in trade-distorting domestic support…” Higher levels of support to be subject to deeper cuts (P.6) Overall commitment to include substantial reductions in Final Bound Total AMS and permitted de minimis levels (P.6) Sum of all trade-distorting support in year one not to exceed 80% of Final Bound Total AMS + Blue Box (P.7) Substantial reduction in Final Bound Total AMS with anti-circumvention caps on product-specific AMS (P.9) Green Box criteria reviewed to ensure no trade-distorting effects (P.16) What would Doha success mean for dairy?:  What would Doha success mean for dairy? 2001 abare study* found a 50% cut in volume of product sold with export subsidies would have raised 1999 world prices by 17-35 percent. The abare study* also found 20-35% rise in world prices for main dairy products if TRQ access was doubled and in- and out-of-quota tariffs cut by 50% USDA ERS 2003 study** (less realistic with full liberalisation scenario) found price rises of up to 60% *Shaw / Love Project 1829. **Suchada Langley et al (USDA-ERS) Prospects for Doha Round:  Prospects for Doha Round Framework agreements restored confidence and delegations are back to work External developments will slow progress until 2Q 2005 Realistic objective: Agreement on modalities by Hong Kong Ministerial Conference (December 2005) End of negotiations?
