New South Wales wheat, barley and canola farmer John Booker has welcomed the World Trade Organization’s decision to abolish agricultural export subsidies. He does not expect to benefit immediately from the decision, but he is optimistic about the long-term gains. Tony Mahar of the National Farmers Federation argues that the domestic support subsidies that some countries provide to farmers must also be scrapped.
