Title: FTA - Free trade agreements study - 2021


FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS - This interactive infographic complements the JRC scientific report "Cumulative economic impact of trade agreements on EU agriculture – 2021 update", a study carried out by the European Commission - Joint Research Centre (JRC) that presents potential effects of twelve free trade agreements (FTAs) under the current EU FTA agenda. It sheds some light on the cumulated impacts in terms of trade, production and price for the EU agricultural sector as a whole, while quantifying also the market development for specific agricultural sectors. Different from a forecast exercise, it compares a conservative and an ambitious FTA scenario with a business as usual (reference) scenario. The study is presented to the Agriculture Council on 25th January 2021 and published contextually to the press conference on the 26th.
