TRANSMISSION OF MARKET CRISES IN THE EUROPEAN VEGETABLES SECTOR

The paper analyses the problem of transmission of crises in European fruit and vegetable markets. The analysis is performed on the prices of tomatoes and cauliflowers on some important markets of the European Union close to production or consumption areas. The methodological approach consists in estimating a two regime error correction model capable of capturing the main aspects of price transmission in the absence or presence of market crises. The analysis shows that the transmission of market crises differs according to the characteristics of the markets analysed, their proximity to production or consumption areas, as well as to the products considered. The work has allowed the identification of relevant insights for planning policies for crisis management in the fresh vegetables sector.
