How will the world rice market be affected by the reductions in agricultural trade barriers produced by the Uruguay Round GATT agreement? A CARD/ FAPRI study projects that by 2002 the world rice market will be substantially affected, not only because of greater access commitments by Japan and the Republic of Korea, but also from expected increases in world consumption that will be stimulated by rising incomes, especially in the developing world.
