DDG González: Multilateral trading system must do more to avert food security crisis

WTO rules are key to well-functioning global agricultural markets, and more needs to be done to strengthen the rules-based trading system in light of the ongoing food and fertilizer crisis, Deputy Director-General Anabel González stressed at the opening of an Agri-Food Business Day event held on 8 December at the WTO. Bringing together leaders from top agri-food companies, the agriculture sector and industry associations, farm leaders and WTO members, the high-level event examined trade obstacles impeding agri-food trade and explored solutions to tackle bottlenecks and address food insecurity.
