Syrian Accession to the World Trade Organization

This study, conducted by Mr Mc Clatchy, FAO international expert, shows that Syria will not have to significantly alter its existing agro food policies as result of a potential accession to the Organization but rather to adjust some of them.

Mr McClatchy is supported by five NAPC technical staff members, divided into two groups. The first group, including Isam Ismail, Yasser Isa and Hajar Baghasa, is gathering and preparing relevant information in order to fill the Domestic Support (DS) tables according to the WTO format WT/ACC/4, to calculate the Aggregate Measure of Support (AMS), the value of all non-exempted domestic support provided to agricultural producers (i.e. the sum of product-specific AMS of each commodity), the non- product specific AMS and the Equivalent Measurement of support.

The second group, composed by Waficca El-Hosni and Samira Subh, is responsible for the calculation of the Tariff Equivalent Measurement of Support, representing the price gap between a commodity domestic price and its parity, calculated as a percentage of the parity price.
