The AoA is a major outcome of the Uruguay Round. It came into force on 1 January 1995 as part of the single undertaking. The preamble to the AoA recognizes that the agreed long-term objective of the reform process initiated by the Uruguay Round is to establish a fair and market-oriented agricultural trading system. The reform programme comprises specific commitments to reduce support and protection in the areas of domestic support, export subsidies and market access.

Sugar By-Products Industry In Pakistan - (Volume IV) - August 2005

Efforts to substitute alternative fuels for petroleum are gaining attention in a world threatened by climate change, rural economic decline, and instability in major oil-producing countries. Besides biofuel crops take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while they are growing, offsetting the greenhouse gases released when the fuel is subsequently burned. Replacing petroleum with biofuel can reduce air pollution, including emissions of fine particulates and carbon monoxide. Biofuel production also can improve rural economies by creating new jobs and raising farm incomes. As a locally produced, renewable fuel, ethanol has the potential to diversify energy portfolios, lower dependence on foreign oil, and improve trade balances in oil-importing nations.

Sugar Industry In Pakistan - (Volume II) - July 2005

The cycle is approaching its final stage, however, in the Northern hemisphere beet and equatorial cane sugar harvests are virtually over. In the Southern hemisphere, starts in May and ends in October- September, is still the main factor of uncertainty in the final outlook for the 2004-05 season. The key to the world supply during the remaining months of the crop cycle to end in September remains in Brazil. The ISO maintains the early forecast that an increase in the cane harvest during the new campaign in the Centre/South, started in May, will be enough not only to increase ethanol output to cover fast growing domestic demand and maintain ample export availability, but also to increase sugar production further.
As has been viewed in 2004-05 a tightness in export supply to the world market. The revisions have not changed this overall view of market fundamentals in 2004-05. The introduced adjustments have slightly increased the gap between anticipated consumption and production from 1.66 million tons to 1.96 million tons, raw value.
