Key stats: Electronic trading documentation
The IGTC’s poll on adoption of electronic documents has revealed that over half of respondents - 67% plan for the wholescale adoption by 2025 i.e. a rate of 75-100% of electronic trade documentation for all documents in one transaction. A full briefing on the results of the poll can be obtained by writing to secretariat@igtcglobal.org 

This is the first step in the IGTC’s efforts to ramp up communications, identify regulatory bottlenecks and tell the world about how the adoption of electronic trading documents is evolving. 


The IGTC led a session on current global policies impacting on the grain trade at the annual NAEGA-APPAMEX forum this week. The Forum gathered together the most prominent actors in Mexico’s agricultural supply chain including Secretary of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food, Jose Eduardo Calzada.
Key areas of focus for the IGTC’s presentations were:
· the commercial value, opportunity and need of electronic trading documentation;
· promotion of smart, efficient regulations through the World Bank’s ‘Enabling the Business of Agriculture’ initiative;
· plant breeding and plant production methods;
· phytosanitary risk management: International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) for the movement of grain
