Scope /
In this session, we will get you up to speed with the latest export and import statistics. After this session, you will have a good understanding of the latest changes in product and trade flows which will give you food for thought for the remainder of the conference. We will present the trade statistics country by country and every time invite a country representative on stage to provide context and engage in discussion about the insights that we discover. This session is a cornerstone of the Global Shrimp Forum's programme and will return every edition.
