The average tariff rates for these items for countries eligible to the selected preferential schemes are also high and although the absolute preferential margin is among the highest, the relative discount is rather low. Further discriminating the preferential margins based on the TRQ status of the items, almost 60% of in-quota tariff rates are allocated to two product aggregates, Preparations of Cereals (Chapter 19) and Dairy (Chapter 4). When preferential access is provided for items with in-quota tariff rates, it is provided duty-free for countries in the LDCT and CCCT programmes, except for items in the category Live Animals (Chapter 1) But, preference is not provided to countries in the GPT programme as the average in-quota tariff rate is comparable to the MFN rate.
As discussed above, this is because duty-free access is provided on items with relatively low MFN tariffs which are reduced relatively less with the Swiss formula. 23 reports the preferential margins for items for which eligible countries face a positive duty. Except for the CCCT programme, the average preferential margin on these items is less, and the margin is eroded to a larger extent. In this case, the Swiss formula results in almost total elimination of the preferential margin. At this level of aggregation for Canada therefore, it appears that there may be a legitimate concern regarding preference erosion.
This is an empirical question that is beyond the mandate of the current study. 9 shows the average tariff that eligible countries would face on their items that are currently excluded from the selected US preferential schemes. 9. 9 shows that the average tariff rate of the tariff lines excluded from the GSP scheme would fall to almost 17% from almost 26% when the tariff cuts are based on the linear 36% across the board reduction method. The average falls by a lesser amount under the other linear alternatives.
