In 1998, U.S. consumers used 9.9 million tons of sugar, 16% of which was imported. The amount of sugar imported into the U.S. is determined annually by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), which administers the U.S. sugar program. The U.S. Trade Rep. (USTR), working with USDA, allocates shares of the tariff-rate quota among 40 countries. This report examines USDA's and USTR's administration of the tariff-quota for imported sugar (IS) and its effect on U.S. cane sugar refiners and consumers. Describes and evaluates: USDA's procedures for setting the tariff-quota for IS, and USTR's procedures f

In joining the Assoc. of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and ASEAN Free Trade Area, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam have agreed to comply with the Common Effective Preferential Tariff (CEPT) Scheme, which reduces intra-ASEAN tariff rates on certain imports and may reduce gov¿t. revenue.

'Utility Pricing and the Poor' evaluates the 1999 electricity tariff increase and the potential for improved water-sector cost recovery, with a particular focus on service accessibility and affordability for the poor. A two-stage approach is recommended. In the first stage, revenues should be increased by ensuring payment from households that have reliable service but are not paying their bills. After collection capacity is strengthened, the utility should implement a program of tariff adjustment, based on improved service and meter-based billing.

Despite all the talk of globalisation, the world economy is still far from the textbook model of unfettered trade, of a global market place without barriers. As far as trade in goods is concerned, non-tariff barriers at and behind the border have been lowered significantly in the course of successive trade negotiations, but more can be done. This is the message conveyed by the Doha Development Agenda, the mandate of which includes negotiations to further improve market access for non-agricultural products. The studies in this volume review concerns that exporters and governments have raised ab

This collection of studies is intended to help trade negotiators navigate through the international discussion over liberalising trade in environmental goods and services by exploring in greater depth three categories of environmental goods: environmentally preferable products, renewable-energy products and energy-efficient products. Its three chapters consider the scope and definition of each product category, examine tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade, and explain the environmental effects of liberalising such goods. This book follows a previous volume, Trade that Benefits the Environme
