This report aims to answer two major questions: (1) How beneficial are the trade preferences provided to developing countries; and (2) what are the implications of possible erosion of these benefits under multilateral trade liberalisation? The report focuses on trade preferences provided by the so-called Quad countries (Canada, the European Union, Japan and the United States) because they have some of the world's highest tariffs on agricultural commodities. Findings from this study suggest that although preferential margins will be eroded with multilateral liberalisation, this may be a problem

Preference erosion has become an important issue in the current WTO trade negotiations as developing countries are concerned that multilateral tariff reductions will harm their agricultural sectors.  The findings in this report suggest that although this may indeed be a problem for some countries in some sectors, factors other than preferential schemes may be limiting developing country exports. This study finds that preference utilisation rates for selected non-reciprocal agreements are generally high.  Taken individually, the utilisation rate for some schemes may seem low, but that is most
