Abstract

This chapter outlines the rules of the WTO on agricultural trade and food safety. It also illustrates the impact these rules of the WTO had on the European Union’s (EU) Common Agricultural Policy. Particular emphasis is given to the impact of these policies on the bioeconomy. We conclude that, despite many reforms, little has changed on the substance. Most policies do not deliver or respond to public goods. However, we conclude that at least under the new rules communication between importers and exporters is facilitated how to positively contribute to the bioeconomy.
