Economic Analysis for EU Accession Negotiations: Agri-food Issues in the EU's Eastward Expansion

Front Cover
The expanding membership of the EU means significant changes for accession countries’ international trade relations, affecting imports, exports, tax revenues, government expenditures and domestic regulatory regimes. There are also significant ramifications for the EU budget. This book is a valuable comprehensive tool kit for analysing the economic effect of EU accession, using examples from the most complex sector for both candidate countries and the EU itself – agriculture.
