EBRD Agribusiness team is inviting guests to a webinar in our Agribusiness Talks series entitled “Digital Solutions for Agricultural Trade” on Wednesday 18th January 2023 – from 14:00 to 16:00 GMT. Learn how digital technologies can and are helping to lower trade costs by making agricultural and food trade more efficient and transparent. High trade costs are an obstacle for economies to participate in global value chains and reap the benefits of economic growth. This is especially true for agricultural products, where trade costs tend to be higher than for manufactured goods. It is estimated that the trade costs of non-tariff measures are more than double those of tariffs, and the cost of phytosanitary measures and technical barriers measures together account for approximately 1.6% of global GDP.
