Agro-food trade sustainability in Central and Eastern Europe


Author Info

  • Stefan Bojnec
  • Imre Ferto


The article applies recent methodological developments in international trade to evaluate agro-food trade sustainability in selected Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries with the European Union and their implications for sustainable agro-food sectors and rural development. Trade in bulk primary raw agricultural and wood commodities is found to perform the best and consumer-ready foods the least. The empirical results imply a clear sign of an inefficient agro-food trade adjustment for the analysed CEE countries, but with large variations across countries, by product groups and over time.
