Little is known about the state of the Cuban rice value chain. Dr. Alvaro Durand-Morat, Assistant Professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness at the University of Arkansas, will cut through some of the haze in a Cuba Rice webinar, July 12 at 3:00 p.m. Central Time.
Durand-Morat will describe production, processing, and market features of the Cuban rice sector and discuss the potential implications for U.S. rice. He specializes in agricultural trade, grain economics with an emphasis on rice, and food policy.
Before joining the University of Arkansas, Durand-Morat was a policy and economic advisor to the rice industry in Argentina. He has a B.S. in agricultural engineering, a M.Sc. degree in agricultural economics, and a Ph.D. in public policy.
