U.S.-EU Rice Deal Preserves Access for U.S. Brown Rice, Forestalls Trade Disruption
The USA Rice Federation today applauded the conclusion of bilateral discussions between the United States and the European Union (EU) over access for U.S. brown rice in Europe.
“We believe today’s agreement maintains the EU as the number one market for U.S. brown rice,” said Carl Brothers, chairman of the USA Rice Federation’s International Trade Policy Committee and senior VP Riceland Foods, Inc. “We commend our trade negotiators, especially Ambassador Allen Johnson, for supporting the U.S. industry in an extremely complex and lengthy negotiation,” Brothers continued. Today’s bilateral agreement replaces the margin of preference (MOP) trade concession that the EU provided to the United States in the Uruguay Round trade agreement. The EU unilaterally withdrew the MOP concession Sept. 1, 2004. Under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, WTO members must provide compensation to other members if a trade concession is withdrawn.
The agreement provides a variable duty structure that will allow applied EU duties to be substantially below the bound rate of €65/ton (approximately $85/ton). The applied duty could fall to as low as €30/ton (approximately $40/ton).
The United States also retains its rights under Article XXVIII of the WTO rules to withdraw trade concessions if the EU fails to implement today’s agreement.
