Poultry Tariffs in South Africa: Levelling the Playing Field or Rewarding Inefficiency?

Abstract

The imposition of import tariffs as a means of protecting local industry is hotly contested. On the one hand such tariffs may help to protect local industries whose international counterparts are guilty of dumping and receiving financial assistance from their own governments. On the other hand, tariffs may serve to buttress uncompetitive local industries and actually serve to harm the poor by reducing competition, thereby allowing local companies to increase their prices. Into this mix is thrown the reciprocity of international trade agreements and the impact that imposing tariffs might have on these agreements. This debate was nowhere more evident than in the decision in 2013 by South Africa to increase import tariffs on certain categories of chicken meat. The case in this chapter examines the dilemmas and debate.
