The Importance of Trade in Agri-Food Products in Selected Regional Groupings
Languages of publication
The aim of the paper is to estimate the importance of trade in agri-food products in selected regional groupings from Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa. The value of the trade, both intra- and with third countries, the shares of agri-food trade in total trade of the region and the regions' shares in world agricultural trade were analysed. The analysis allowed us to indicate the largest global exporters and importers of agri-food products. The assessment of trade creation and trade diversion effect in agri-food trade of selected regional groupings was also possible.
