sector ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam Methodological approach Compare domestic prices (real prices in the Tanzanian market) with their equivalents from international trade. International trade prices are adjusted to take into account: Cost of import or export procedures Cost of processing Cost of transport and handling, storage, etc. Margins of agents along the value chain This is done at two stages of the value chain: wholesale and farm gate ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam Methodological approach HYPOTHESIS: Domestic prices embed the impact of domestic market and trade policies and actual functioning of markets International prices do not have the impact of domestic market and trade policies and reflect the functioning of integrated markets. CONCLUSION: Differences can be used as measurement of impact of domestic market and trade policies and the actual functioning of markets

IMPORTS Sugar 20.00% Incentives 10.00% 0.00% -10.00% Disincentives -20.00% -30.00% -40.00% 2005 2006 2007 Observed NRP at farm gate 2008 2009

2010 Adjusted NRP at farm gate Import tariff of 100% with ad-hoc exemptions during the period 2008-2010 Even when prices are higher at the wholesale level (i.e. the tariff works at wholesale level) farmers do not benefit from them due to very high processing costs in Tanzania. Protection to farmers in 2007 coincided with low production and increased exports which led to competition by mills for sugar cane ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam IMPORTS Wheat Import tariff of 35% which is reduced to 10% as of 2007. The level of protection follows this trend however as of 2008 the reduction in the protection does not lead to lower prices. Incentives for production also include high costs for handling at the port of Dar es Salaam and lack of competition in the import market. During 2009 and 2010 imports at lower tariff do not reflect lower protection which coincides with increased exports of wheat flour. ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam IMPORTS Cow Milk 100%

incentives 80% 60% 40% 20% disincentives 0% -20% 2007 2008 Observed nominal rate of protection at point of competition 2009 2010 Adjusted nominal rate of protection at point of competition Import tariff of 60% with reduced tariff for Kenya and Uganda (effective tariff always above 50%)

Domestic prices are isolated from internationsl prices and variations in protection relate to variation on international markets No data on farm gate prices but only a very limited % of farmers get this protection ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam IMPORTS Rice Net exporter 300.00% 250.00% 200.00% 150.00% 100.00% 50.00% 0.00% -50.00% 2005

2006 2007 Observed nominal rate of protection at farm gate 2008 2009 2010 Adjusted nominal rate of protection at farm gate Import tariff of 75% lead to higher domestic prices and avoiding cheap imports as declared by President Kikwete BUT other factors also affect higher prices including excessive marketing costs along the value chain When international prices started raising the level of incentive was reduced, probably due to decreasing margins along the value chain and/or impact of releases of maize from NFRA. As of 2007 the liberalization of the rice market results in incentives to farmers reduced and mantained for traders. ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam Imported goods [Sugar, Wheat, Rice, Milk] 200% 180% 160%

Higher prices for producers ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam 2010 EXPORTS Coffee 20.00% Incentives 10.00% 0.00% -10.00% Disincentives -20.00% -30.00% -40.00% 2005 2006 2007 Observed NRP at farm gate

2008 2009 2010 Adjusted NRP at farm gate Disincentives mainly related to maket power of buyers at the auction Impact of district cess is less important than overall disincentives (5% versus 20% disincentives on average) Not clear explanation for reduction of disincentives during 2007-2009 ASTWG Meeting 28th November 2012 Dar es Salaam EXPORTS Cotton 20% 10% Incentives 0% -10% -20% Disincentives

-30% -40% -50% -60% 2005 2006 2007 Observed NRP at farm gate 2008 2009 2010 Adjusted NRP at farm gate Very low level of processing in Tanzania, most exports are raw cotton not combed or carded. Disincentives linked to two aspects: High level of levies and taxes on cotton (estimated at 40.000 TzSh per ton) Very low ginning out turn of cotton factories in Tanzania compared to international standards Need to assess the potential of increasing processing in Tanzania as a way to improve the incentives for farmers.

EXPORTS The export ban prevent farmers from obtaining higher prices (2009); when there is no export ban the lack of storage forces domestic prices to be higher than value obtained from exports.
