Agricultural Trade: Current Climate and Trends: Practical Considerations During COVID-19 and Beyond

This presentation will offer valuable insight into key issues regarding agricultural trade, including the current climate and projected trends during the COVID-19 pandemic and the road ahead. The timely discussion will be centered around a host of agriculture-specific topics, including recent sanctions against Chinese agricultural suppliers and general trends in protectionism; trends in agriculture trade and recent challenges; requirements and special customs programs unique to and benefiting agriculture; and managing trade business records as a US company in light of the ever-growing importance of trade to US agriculture and increased regulatory requirements and scrutiny.
