Abstract: This study analyzes 35 developing countries' (LDCs) exports of high value and prncessed agricultural products (HVPs) during 1970-87, and the roles of supply and demand factors in accounting for their export performance. HVPs account for 83 percent of LDC agricultural exports. Processed exports have undergone the most rapid growth, and accounted for almost one-half of LDC high value exports in 1986-87. Developed countries remain LDCs' major HVP export market. LDCs' share of this market fell during 1970-87, although their share of developed country imports of highly processed HVPs increased. Domestic policies favorable to expmts distinguished successful from unsuccessful LDC exporters. Several of the most competitive LDC exporters also adopted policies that promoted exports of specific HVPs. However, favorable domestic conditions were not sufficient; strong developed country demand was also necessary for successful LDC HVP export performance.
