WTO Negotiations: 

WTO Negotiations Negotiations for a new WTO agreement are ongoing Agriculture is focused on 3 areas: Agreement to eliminate export subsidies (by 2013?); world prices should increase Domestic support (agreement on substantial reductions) Market access (negotiations continue)

WTO Negotiations: 

WTO Negotiations An ambitious agreement has substantial potential for beef exports A recent study by the George Morris Centre concluded that if tariff reductions “on the table” were applied to beef, exports would grow by 174,000 tonnes and $994 million Alberta’s share would be $646 million

WTO Negotiations: 

WTO Negotiations Alberta continues to press the Federal government to negotiate for an ambitious deal at the WTO A growing middle class in developing countries, such as China, will lead to increased global demand for beef It is imperative that Alberta’s beef industry gains increased access to these growing markets
