Papers presented at the New Zealand Branch Australian Agricultural Economics Society Conference, Blenheim, June 1986
The theme for the 1986 Conference of the New Zealand Branch of the Australian Agricultural Economics Society was Economic Liberalisation in Agriculture: An International Comparison. The organising committee adopted this theme recognising the very significant changes in the economnic environment which were being introduced. The removal of regulation, output and input subsidies, the floating of the exchange rate, the opening of the New Zealand economy to capital flows, the lowering of tariffs on manufactured goods all these factors were leading to a new economic climate for the primary sector.
