On 7 February, President Obama finally signed the long-awaited Agriculture Act of 2014, bringing to an end two years of drawn-out negotiations over the design of US farm policies and farm support programmes. At this informal dialogue, Professor Vince Smith of Montana State University will share some reflections on the new Act, and offer some thoughts on its possible implications for trade.

This policy dialogue, which is being organised jointly by ICTSD and FAO, will seek to explore the relationship between farm policy reforms and the future of the multilateral trading system, looking in particular at the evolution of agricultural trade policy in major economies since the start of the WTO's Doha Round, and the implications of anticipated policy trajectories in the future. It will therefore draw in particular on research and analysis on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy in the EU, the likely implications of the new US Farm Bill, and ongoing discussions about agricultural trade policy trajectories in Brazil, China, India and Russia. As policy-makers and trade negotiators seek to assess options for the post-Bali trading system, this dialogue will provide an opportunity for a range of policy actors to discuss informally how agricultural trade policy can best support global public policy objectives, including poverty reduction, food security and environmental sustainability.
