Abstract

Provides the following analysis: (a) identifies the top goods and services purchased by the GOJ in 1999 and 2000, from which a sample has been drawn for the analysis; (b) determines the origin of the goods and services on the basis of domestic versus foreign providers; (c) based on input/output tables, derives the costs of domestic production that include the associated levels of protection and compare those costs with the free trade costs, or border price of inputs; (d) estimates the effective rates of protection for the selected goods and services; (e) estimates the impact of liberalization on the demand for the selected goods and services; and from the empirical results, draws conclusions on the effects of the GPA on specific industries.
