The International Agricultural Trade Research Consortium (lA TRC) is a group of economists from around the world who are interested in fostering research and providing a forum for the exchange of ideas relating to international trade of agricultural commodities. Each summer the lA TRC sponsors a symposium on a topic relating to trade and trade policy from which proceedings are published.
