Export Subsidy

Summary of Export Subsidy

A direct payment, tax relief, or other incentive provided by a government to encourage export sales. The use of such devices is apt to be regarded as undesirable by the importing nation and may result in the imposition of Countervailing Duties (read this legal term for further details) to negate the effect of the subsidy.

Export Subsidy and the GATT Policy Negotiations

In relation to the GATT Policy Negotiations, Christopher Mark (1993) provided the following explanation and/or definition of Export Subsidy: Any form of government payment or other benefit provided to domestic producers of goods destined for sale in foreign markets. Examples include preferential government financing, income tax holidays, and rebates of direct taxes on exported products. Reflecting the belief among the founders of GA TT that export subsidies can distort normal trading patterns, GATI’ Article 16 proscribes export subsidies on non-primary products that result in lower prices in foreign markets than prices charged for the “like product” in the domestic market. The Tokyo Round yielded an agreement that extended Article 16 by banning all export subsidies by industrial countries on manufactured and semi-manufactured goods (see Subsidies Code). See also domestic subsidy and countervailing duty.
