Abstract

Eliminating tariff barriers has been one of the principal strategies to meet the economic and political goals of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs). Since the late 1990s, the contribution of FTAs to reducing trade barriers has exceeded expectations due to the proliferation of such agreements. However, doubts have emerged regarding this contribution, since parties to FTAs often opt not to make use of the preferential tariffs of FTAs, resulting in a significant difference in the utilization rates between FTAs, countries, and industries. Previous studies have explained these differences by pointing to the regulatory or administrative burdens imposed by the Rules of Origin (RoOs). However, studies of the influences of RoOs on the use of FTAs are limited both in scope and methods used, and have rarely been conducted from an administrative perspective. (The rest omitted)
