"Trade Liberalisation in the Doha Round: A Global and Danish Perspective"
by Baltzer, Kenneth, Hans Grinsted Jensen and Kim Martin Lind

This paper provides a qualitative and numerical analysis of a potential Doha agree-ment of multilateral trade liberalisation following the summer ‘mini-ministerial’ meeting of negotiators in Geneva during July 2008. We discuss the latest draft mo-dalities for agricultural and non-agricultural market access, dated 10 July 2008. For the numerical analysis, we design a Doha-scenario, which reflects the draft modali-ties as closely as possible, and employ the GTAP model and database to estimate the economic impacts of such an agreement. We find that the agreement has positive global welfare implications of around US$ 55 billion, corresponding to around 0.2 percent of GDP. The Danish economy also benefits from the agreement, largely due to improved access for the Danish pork industry to important protected export mar-kets such as Japan. Throughout the paper, we take global and Danish perspectives on Doha.
