Trade and international policy analysis

Information on the statistics collected, trade and policy analyses, agri-food monitoring reports and studies used to ensure delivery of CAP objectives.


The international dimension is part and parcel of the common agricultural policy (CAP), as maintaining a healthy balance of imports and exports is key to safeguarding internal market stability.

In order to ensure the delivery of the CAP objectives, the European Commission collects statistics and produces analyses of agricultural trade and international agri-food policy developments.

Monitoring agri-trade policy

Monitoring agri-trade policy (MAP) is an annual publication that provides in-depth analysis of the dominant issues concerning agri-food policy and agricultural trade in general. The series contains a detailed overview of the international agri-food trade environment, with a focus on key products and partners.

This report evaluates the EU's agri-food trade diversification from 2012-2022. It assesses the EU's dependency for its agri-food supply chains and highlights the reciprocal dependency between the EU and its major trade partners in agri-food trade, thereby preventing supply chain risks and ensuring resilience.

The European Commission and its partners regularly undertake studies to assess the impact of international trade agreements on agriculture. For each trade agreement, the Commission runs impact assessments before the launch of negotiations and sustainability impact assessments during their conduct. The Commission also undertakes cumulative impact studies to analyse the combined impact of the various agreements that are in the process of being signed or negotiated.
