16 The Uruguay Round negotiations in the agricultural sector were not easy and went beyond the traditional problems of access to imports [6]. Negotiators discussed disciplines on all agricultural trade measures, including domestic agricultural policy and agricultural export subsidies. The Agreement on Agriculture contains specific commitments to reduce support and protection in the areas of domestic support, export subsidies and market access. In the event of a conflict between the WTO agreements and the Agreement on Agriculture, priority shall be given to the provisions of the WTO Agreement. The texts of other agreements are available on the WTO texts website. In addition, the following resources may come in handy: View all Google Scholar citations for this article.

As a general rule, governments give more weight to the surplus of producers than to the consumer. This is why it is so difficult for the EU to accept ambitious trade liberalisation proposals, despite considerable net gains in welfare. The same political constraint exists in other countries that largely support agriculture (Switzerland, Norway, Korea and Japan). On the other hand, the Cairns Group and 20 developing countries have called for ambitious trade liberalization for their producers, although welfare gains are not significant for the majority of developing countries. Strong opposition can also come from the least developed countries [16].

A dispute arises when a member government believes that another member government is in breach of a WTO agreement. The complaining member must file a “request for consultation” indicating the agreements that he or she believes to be violated. A dispute can and often is subject to more than one agreement. The list below shows the agreements mentioned in the consultation request.

The establishment of an infrastructure is particularly important, since the absence or absence of such an infrastructure usually means that the benefits of trade agreements cannot be exploited at all.
