The reform of the common a gricultural policy and the doha round

Developed countries have ignored the agreements reached at the GATT’s
Uruguay Round. This has generated the reaction of developing countries,
now better organized since the beginning of the Doha Round. Developing
Countries demand the effective reduction of agricultural subsidies, given that
such practices have lowered international prices and therefore ruined many
small producers in the South. In this context, the EU has been pushed to cut
subsidies to agricultural production and exports. Nevertheless, the final impact
of the new Common Agricultural Policy is yet unknown, since negotiations
in the Doha Round respond, not only to the interests of member countries
and the theoretical defense of world free trade, but also to the interests of
transnational corporations. This paper explains how the latest reforms of ACP
have responded to negotiations within GATT and the WTO, as well as their
impact in the world agricultural market and in the agriculture of developing
countries.
