In the age of social media, a big part of the food industry is about getting information from trusted sources.
But how do you know if someone is trustworthy?
And how do we know if a trade agreement is good for our business?
That’s the challenge facing trade negotiator Sam Dutta as he sets out on his journey to become the best trader in the world.
He’s a member of the Trade and Development Forum (TDF), a network of business leaders who help governments and trade partners work together to achieve trade agreements.
TDF is comprised of trade negotiators, policy makers, academics and business people, and it works to create agreements that help countries reach the best trade deals.
The first step is to gather information from the relevant government agencies and trade associations.
It’s an arduous process, but one that Dutt says is key.
It will help you make an informed decision about what you’re buying, and which countries have the best incentives to negotiate better trade deals for India.
“It’s a lot of data,” Duttsaid.
“It’s not only your government’s and their own.
It has to be data from the industry itself.””
You can have a really great trade deal but if you don’t have data on what the country wants, then there’s no trade deal,” he said.
The TDF’s database includes information on the industry, the trade agreements and the incentives for each country to negotiate good trade deals with other countries.
It also includes the most recent data from all of the countries that have signed or negotiated agreements.TDF’s data also shows how India compares with other Asian countries, which are also struggling to make good trade agreements with their neighbours.
In India, there are currently 17 countries with trade agreements, including Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
“There’s still a lot to do,” said Dutted.
“But there are many countries in the region where we can get some good trade,” he added.
“And there’s a growing number of countries that we can work with.”
There are also trade agreements that the TDF does not have data for, such as the North-South Free Trade Agreement, or the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is the Pacific Rim free trade agreement.
“In some ways, we have to rely on the TDR,” DUTT said.
“We’re not as much in a position to know about how many countries have signed agreements with the TPP.
But I think we have a pretty good idea about the size of our market.”
He also noted that there are some countries in Asia that are developing their own trade agreements at a faster rate than the rest of the world, which could help them reach better deals.
Dutta said there are a few other countries that are emerging, and India is one of them.
“India is very well positioned to get the best deals,” he explained.
“But there’s also a lot that we don’t know.”
The government has a number of incentives to push for trade deals, but it is also very difficult to find a deal.
Duttha said it is a huge challenge for the government to convince countries to agree to trade deals and it is even more difficult to convince them to commit to a deal with India.
For example, many countries, such the United States, have tariffs and quotas, which impact the Indian economy.
“There are very strict requirements in trade agreements,” he observed.
“You have to be in a particular market.”
“That means you have to have a strong and stable domestic market.
And if you’re not, then you’re going to be left behind.
India has some very strong domestic markets,” he continued.
“That is why we are so optimistic about trade agreements.”
“We have the capacity to do this,” Dutt said.
