Ukraine’s recovery plan: three priorities in the agricultural sector

Ukraine’s restoration plan defines three priorities in the agricultural sector for the war period.

This is stated in the message of the European Business Association, whose representatives took part in the presentation and discussion of the plan with representatives of the National Council for the Restoration of Ukraine from the consequences of the war.

Thus, the first priority is the development of export logistics.

“Thanks to the efforts of enterprises, among others, even without ports, we have achieved considerable success and increased the volume of agricultural products exported from 350,000 tons in March to 3 million tons in July. And from August, the Black Sea ports will also be added to the logistics corridors,” EBA ratings.

“The second is crop storage. With the support of FAO, Ukraine will receive the necessary equipment for grain storage, which will help solve the lack of granaries.

“The third concerns loans and access to finance for the agricultural sector, on which the Ukrainian side is actively working with partners. The post-war development of the agricultural sector is through the development of processing, the growth of value addition, the development of bioenergy, animal husbandry, horticulture, etc. say the experts.
