Export Enhancement Program

Export Enhancement Program (EEP) and the GATT Policy Negotiations

In relation to the GATT Policy Negotiations, Christopher Mark (1993) provided the following explanation and/or definition of Export Enhancement Program (EEP): A system of agricultural export subsidies maintained by the United States. The EEP, which is linked to stock disposal policies, is partial and discretionary in nature. Payments are not automatically accorded to all exports of a given commodity nor to all commodities, and payment rates may vary widely from sale to sale. Congress restored $1 billion in EEP export subsidies in mid- 1992 as a result of failure to conclude a Uruguay Round agreement covering foreign agricultural trade practices.
