A study by the Danish Research Institute for Food Economics has analysed the first draft of the Harbinson proposals, concluding that: 80% of the expected gains of US $100 billion in increased global real income would accrue to OECD countries, while the remaining 20% would be spread amongst a relatively large number of developing countries, including least-developed countries; net food-importing developing countries will be negatively affected as a result of higher food import prices; traditional beneficiaries of preferences (such as the ACP) would be negatively affected by multilateral trade liberalisation. Comment: The most significant finding of this study is the fact that preferred partners like the ACP will be negatively affected by a new agreement on agriculture, while OECD exporters like the EU will gain the bulk of the benefits.
