Summary

Agricultural market liberalization is essential in achieving a successful Doha Round agreement because these are the most protected markets remaining in most rich countries. But the implications for developing countries, especially the poorest, are more complex than the current debate suggests. The Peterson Institute and the Center for Global Development cohosted a book launch for joint senior fellow Kimberly Elliott’s Delivering on Doha: Farm Trade and the Poor, featuring keynote speaker Ernesto Zedillo, Director of Yale Center for the Study of Globalization and professor at Yale University and former President of Mexico. Elliott's book examines the structure of agricultural support in rich countries and explores the challenges as well as opportunities that developing countries might face if the Doha Round succeeds in reforming OECD agriculture policies.
