Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperAcademic


In the last years the usual clearance of the European agricultural market with the use of export refunds was heavily discussed. The consequences for the agricultural producers in West and southern Africa are in the centre of interest. There are two opposed points of view: One arguing that the European Unions (EU) export policy reduces the prices on these markets and relieves high burden on local producers. Contrary, the other position claims that refunds do not influence local prices. This study focuses on the effects of subventions of beef export on EU market share. A Fixed Effects and a Random Effects model for 26 African countries during the period 1988-1999 is used. The results clearly show a highly significant positive impact of refund rate. With its export policy the EU rises its market share and edges out other competitors.
