The FAO has released a series of 15 two-page briefings on issues facing developing countries in the WTO negotiations. As an example, Briefing 1 highlights: the sharp rise in food imports by developing countries and low-income food-deficit countries; how these imports can undermine domestic production; how there has been an increase in sudden import surges, particularly for meat, cereals vegetable oils and dairy products; how trade distortions via public subsidies in OECD countries contribute to adverse import trend and surges; how the Uruguay Round did little to reduce public subsidies and how the Doha Development Round provides an opportunity to do so; the importance of allowing developing countries to protect their markets from the results of policy distortions.
