EBA Markets

Quantifying laws and regulations for more efficient agricultural markets

EBA markets indicators measure regulatory obstacles agribusinesses face in producing, marketing and exporting agricultural products, as well as the strength of plant protection measures. Additional data on Agricultural trade (time and motion) is available for Denmark, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, and Spain on the Additional Indicators page.

The team is currently collecting updated and expanded information for 80 countries around the world and will publish this data in 2019. For more information or to share your expertise, contact Yucheng Zheng (Team Leader), at ebamarkets@worldbankgroup.org.
