초록 This paper examines how the trade liberalization can be compatible with sustainable development in the agricultural sector. Within a general equilibrium framework for a small open economy, this paper develops a theoretical model that can explain and analyze the relationship between trade liberalization and non-trade concerns as a sustainable development proxy in agriculture. An attempt is also made using this model to find an optimal level of market opening which ensures sustainable development for social welfare maximization. This paper shows that, considering non-trade concerns, complete trade liberalization could lead to welfare reduction even for a small importing country, and that some positive tariffs are necessary for the society to achieve sustainable development in the process of trade liberalization, implying that certain level of protective measures can be justified under the WTO regime pursuing agricultural policy reform.
