Agricultural trade agreements

While the WTO’s Agreement on Agriculture is "the" set of international rules on agricultural trade, agriculture is — or some countries want it to be — an important consideration in bilateral and plurilateral FTAs. But even outside the frame of WTO’s AoA or smaller scale FTAs, countries also sign bilateral agreements on specific commodities or other aspects of their agricultural trade relations.
