The FAO has released an 8 page analysis of the winners and losers in the agricultural sector following the Uruguay Round. Points highlighted include: The increase in domestic support in OECD countries from an average of US$ 298 million in 1986-88 to US$ 327 million in 2000; Export subsidies have been reduced on several products but remain high, particularly for meat, dairy and cereals; Agricultural tariffs remain high and complex; Protection rates in agriculture are still high and market access terms have not improved much; The expected benefits of higher and more stable world prices have not materialised; Exporters under preferential arrangements have experienced an erosion of the value of these preferences; Some developing countries have experienced import surges in various products which have reportedly damaged their import competing sectors.
