|Home > The Uruguay Round: From Cold War To Cooperation In Negotiating Temperate-zone Agricultural And Trade Policies|
It is not likely that Governments will take precipitous action following the Uruguay Round. However, the large industrial economies should continue to press heavily for the revision of farm programs until a better accommodation is reached.

This reform should be supplemented by greater international attention to domestic policies which create non-tariff barriers to trade.
