Higher rates of productivity in the dairy sector will have a positive effect on

the output level in EU. As already discussed for the aggregated food sector, the

New Zealand and Australian dairy sector strongly expand dairy production under

full market access conditions.

8.5 Food export and international competitiveness

The following figures present results for the export performance of the food industries

of the different policy scenarios calculated for this study. In general,

the first scenario which analyses the consequences of the continuation of the

current polices (Base) and the scenarios analysing the abolition of milk quotas

(Quota) and the full withdrawal of any support in the dairy sector (Lib) show a

decline in competitiveness of European food processing industries both at international

level and at national level.
