Valencia’s agri-food sector is an important pillar of the region’s economy, contributing 4.9% of value added and 5.2% of employment. The purpose of this report is to analyze the situation and recent development of the Valencian Community’s agri-food sector compared with that of the other regions of Spain. To do that, it provides aggregate information for the sector and for two subsectors: agriculture and fishing, on the one hand, and food and beverages, on the other. The time horizon is the period from the start of the economic crisis in 2008 to the present. The study rests on the construction of an observatory, which includes a broad set of indicators.
