INTRODUCTION Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryz sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most important staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East and the West Indie India is one of the world's largest producer of white rice accounting for 20% of all world rice production. Rice is India's preeminent crop, and is the staple food of the people of the eastern and southern parts of the country NextPreviousEnd
Economic, Market And Institutional Integration NextPreviousEnd Developing countries are the main players in the world rice trade, accounting for 83 percent of exports and 85 percent of imports. The concentration is particularly high on the export side, since five countries (Thailand, Viet Nam, China, the United States and India) cover about three-quarters of world trade This situation is in contrast to the fragmentation of import markets and the wide year-to-year fluctuations in individual countries’ purchases, resulting from the fact that importers do not rely consistently on the international market for rice supplies, but only as a last resort to fill the gap caused by a production shortfall.
GENERAL THRUST OF RICE GOVERNMENT POLICIES NextPreviousEnd Government support to producers in developing countries concentrates mainly on research in improved or hybrid rice varieties, investments in irrigation, preferential credits, extension and distribution of improved seed. Intervention to influence prices is also common - through procurement purchases or releases from stocks, or through changes in trade policies. In developed countries, much assistance to the sector is conveyed through direct payments and through price support. Government often plays an important role in the first phase of the marketing cycle, by procuring paddy at minimum producer prices. Cont..
NextPreviousEnd Some governments oblige millers to purchase paddy at a predetermined price and to charge fixed mark-ups at each stage of the marketing process, while others distribute rice at fixed retail prices. It is common practice to manage rice stocks or to adopt trade policy measures in order to stabilize domestic market prices. Trade measures, especially tariffs, are widely used to protect domestic rice markets. Despite the relatively high WTO (World Trade Organization)- bound tariffs, rice imports are often subject to “Special Safeguards” in country schedules. The role of state companies in managing international rice flows is also important, although such companies do not usually have monopoly privileges and they share their trade functions with the private sector.
REVIEW OF RICE POLICIES FROM AWTO PERSPECTIVE NextPreviousEnd Bound tariffs Bound tariff rates for rice are generally high, often over 100 percent. Some countries (India, the Dominican Republic and Panama) recently renegotiated tariff bindings to higher than the originally agreed levels, alleging that the latter provided insufficient protection for their domestic sectors. Applied tariffs Applied tariff rates are often set equal to bound tariffs when international prices are low. However, their level tends to change frequently, depending on the domestic and international market situations, contributing a high level of uncertainty to the world rice economy. Cont…
Several countries have reserved the right to use the Special Safeguard (SSG) provisions; however, only rarely have they been invoked for rice. Tariff escalation Tariff escalation is less important for rice than for other commodities, because of the relatively small volume of trade of paddy or unhusked rice. Nonetheless it should be noted that tariffs increase according to the processing stage and are much lower for paddy or husked rice than for milled rice. Special Safeguards (SSG) NextPreviousEnd
Non-tariff barriers Certain restrictions on rice imports from Viet Nam and Thailand are in force in several Latin American and Caribbean countries on phytosanitary grounds, influencing the pattern of trade flows into the region. NextPreviousEnd Phytosanitary barriers are less important for rice than for other commodities.
Export subsidies NextPreviousEnd Export subsidy reduction commitments have been made under the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture (URAA) by Colombia, Indonesia, Uruguay, the EC and the United States. Other issues have arisen in relation to export competition in rice, in particular the granting of export credits by the United States of America. Proposals for further reduction commitments are likely to meet opposition from the EC. It should be noted, however, that export credits are also commonly used in government-to-government adeals, although there is little information available in connection with such practices
