TITLE: style= The Implications of the Multilateral Trade Negotiations and World Trade Organization Rulings on U.S. Agricultural Policy
ABSTRACT: Most nations continue the multilateral-trade negotiation process through the Doha Development Agenda of the World Trade
Organization. In addition to the focus on market access for agricultural products, much has been made of the potential impacts of the WTO on domestic agricultural support. In the United States, the current WTO negotiating round, coupled with uncertainty surrounding the challenge to the U.S. cotton program brought by Brazil, has the potential to impact U.S. domestic agricultural policy. The current status of the negotiations, their potential impacts on U.S. farm policy, and possible changes to U.S. policy as a result of the cotton case will be presented in this symposium. Implications for applied research and extension education will be highlighted, examined, and discussed.
