Negotiating the liberalisation of world agricultural trade in the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is fraught with difficulty due to the complexity of the issues and the wide range of interests across countries. In the new round of global trade negotiations under the WTO, different perspectives on trade reform have produced a highly contentious agenda. These issues are addressed from a range of perspectives in this very topical survey of the new trade agenda and its implications for both developing and developed countries. Agricultural trade specialists, including those in universities, in international organizations and think tanks, analyse a comprehensive range of topics including interests and options in the new WTO trade negotiations, the new trade agenda from a development patent perspective, new WTO trade rules, trade barriers, tariff negotiations and patent protection for developing countries.
