Summary:

Economic Transition in Central and East Europe, and the Former Soviet Union: Implications for International Agricultural Trade
Harald von Witzke and Stefan Tangermann, eds., November, 1998

This volume includes proceedings from an IATRC symposium, held June 12-14, 1998 in Berlin, Germany. The purpose of the conference was to provide a good, though necessarily selective, survey both of the issues most relevant in agricultural and more general trade relations between the transition economies in the East and their partner countries in the West, and of the types of analysis that economist can bring to bear on these issues. The issues covered range all the way from the fundamental questions raised by the need to reintegrate the formerly centrally planned economies into market-oriented international trade, to the trade implications of agricultural transition in individual countries in Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. Trade relations between East and West in Europe receive particular attention, with a perspective on the impending integration of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe into the European Union.
