About the product

The objectives of the study are to map and analyse existing trade agreements in the region and their product coverage, particularly agricultural products, as well as associated tariff and non-tariff barriers and to derive implications and recommendations and guidelines for trade policy negotiations. It contains both quantitative and qualitative analyses of liberalization efforts in the area of agricultural trade, which took place in parallel to negotiations on agricultural trade liberalization in the context of Doha Development Agenda. It provides an up-to-date, reliable account of preferential trade in Asia with respect to agriculture. The Study also contains a review of agricultural reform in China.
