Abstract

This study investigates alternative options for future agricultural policies in Turkey in the context of its agricultural trade relations with the EU. The main findings are that liberalization of agricultural markets would lead to considerable welfare gains for Turkey compared with a situation in which the current policy is maintained. This report is published in order to share this experience with a wider public interested in agricultural policy issues; it presents a spectrum of agricultural policy options to policy makers and may serve as background material for similar studies.
