Weakness in trade between countries
Asymmetry in international trade

The patterns of international trade have exhibited a number of striking asymmetries. In the case of farm products, for example, there have been lower degrees of multilateral discipline, transparency and market access commitments compared to those governing the trade in manufactures. Domestic support for agriculture has also become increasingly unsustainable for a variety of domestic reasons and external spill-over effects.
