Infrastructure and Agricultural Trade in North and Latin America

Aaisha Al-Maamari and Amanda M. Countryman

Journal of Food Distribution Research, 2021, vol. 52, issue 2

Abstract: This research investigated the impact of hard infrastructure on food and agricultural trade among North and Latin American countries. We employed a modified gravity model of trade for food and agricultural imports to measure the potential impact of the quality of hard infrastructure on the prevalence and patterns of agricultural trade. Results suggest that the development of hard infrastructure by investing in new projects or renewing existing network systems can increase agricultural trade volume and enhance trade performance among North and Latin American countries.
