Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the beginning of the 21st century, exports of agricultural and agri-food products have maintained an intense dynamic and, in parallel, more countries have participated in these exchanges, including fruit and vegetable products, oilseeds, cereals, and meat and fish, which comprise a greater percentage of the total. Trade in agricultural products promotes the productive specialization of national economies, with benefits derived from this in terms of productivity and efficiency, and promotes access to food, contributing to guaranteeing global food security. The purpose of this monograph is to analyze the long-term trends that define the recent evolution of world trade in agricultural and agri-food products and, likewise, to investigate incipient changes that mark its nearest future, conditioned by various factors such as the war in Russia and Ukraine, the agreements of integration between countries and the development of trading blocs, the restrictive trade policies that have become widespread since the 2008 crisis, the effects of climate change on agricultural production and prices, the increase in fertilizer prices or the need to make the growth of the agri-food sector compatible with the sustainability of rural areas and environmental conservation. This Special Issue invites all types of articles, applying qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodologies, as well as both empirical primary research and reviews, along with commentaries.
