VETERINARY STANDARDS AS BARRIERS TO TRADE: THE CASE OF POULTRY TRADE BETWEEN THE U.S. AND THE EU

Tian Xia and Silvia Weyerbrock

No 20924, 1998 Annual meeting, August 2-5, Salt Lake City, UT from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The EU banned U.S. poultry meat imports because it considers U.S. veterinary regulations unsatisfactory. We develop a model of the EU and world poultry markets. We find that the import ban causes a 2.44% increase and a 0.44% decrease in the EU and world price respectively.
