Title:Aspects of trade policy on the federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland: the evolution towards protection
Author:Davies, R.J.
Periodical:Rhodesian Journal of Economics
Geographic term:Rhodesia and Nyasaland
Subject:trade policy
Abstract:Using a qualitative analytical approach this paper examines the evolution of Federal trade policy. This subject was touched upon by R.L. Cole in 'The Tariff Policy of Rhodesia, 1899-1963' (Rhodesian Jl. of Econ., 2 (1968), 2, p. 28-47). As noted by Cole, there was a steady evolution in industrial tariff policy throughout the Federal period. From an initial policy of using the tariff to assist existing domestic industries to face external competition there evolved a policy of deliberately using it to encourage industrial development. Evidence of this evolution is provided by the opinions expressed in official publications, by the changes made in the tariff itself and by the nature of Trade Agreements negotiated. This article begins with a brief outline of the trends noticeable in those publications. After an exposition of the different purposes which the forms of tariff were designed to serve, the changes in the structure of the tariff between 1955 and 1962 are examined. Notes, tables.
