PASCN DP 1998-05: The Effects of the APEC Early Voluntary Sectoral Liberalization on the Fish and Fish Products

This paper examines the likely effects of the EVSL on the fish and fish products sector, including the problems that prevent it from benefiting fully from the proposal. A competitive and efficient sector will not likely experience adverse consequences from the EVSL. The findings of the paper indicate that fresh and frozen shellfish and prepared and preserved fish have shown potential export competitiveness in the world market relative to the other fish sub-sectors and thus can be offered to EVSL. However, although prepared and preserved fish can also be able to compete, these products seem vulnerable to face greater competition.
