Computational Analysis of the Impact on India of the Uruguay Round 19 committee and subsequent consultations with India’s main trading partners, an agreement was reached to phase out QRs by 2001. In line with the Agreement on Trade-related Investment Measures (TRIMs), India has reported to the WTO the TRIMs that it has maintained. These measures were to be eliminated by January 1, 2000. Under the Information Technology Agreement tariffs were to be brought down to zero on 95 HS six-digit tariff lines by the year 2000, on 4 more tariff lines by 2003, on another 2 tariff lines by 2004, and on the balance of 116 tariff lines in the year 2005.

In the case of the MFA these are the textiles and apparel–exporting countries. Liberalizing these nontariff barriers reduces or eliminates the quota rents—an action that can be costly to those who possessed them disproportionately beforehand. Therefore, it is not the case that exporting countries necessarily benefit from relaxing these trade barriers because their loss of quota rents can more than outweigh their gains from increased exports. Indeed, their exports can actually decline, along with their national welfare, if increased exports from other countries displace them in world markets.

Agricultural liberalization in the Uruguay Round negotiations presumably was to be as follows: agricultural import tariffs were to be reduced by 20 percent for the industrial countries and by 13 percent for the developing economies; agricultural export subsidies were to be reduced by 36 percent for the industrial countries and by 24 percent for the developing economies; and agricultural production subsidies were to be reduced by 20 percent for the industrial countries and by 14 percent for the developing economies.
