Grain and Oilseeds
Members of the Grain and Oilseeds Committee met with the UN Economic Commission for Europe consultant to discuss important issues concerning wheat exports from Ukraine.
During the meeting the participants talked about the wheat supply chain bottlenecks (from producer to port), as well as analyzed the state of existing commercial procedures, namely: contracting, regulatory, financial issues and logistics (organization of domestic and international shipments).
In conclusion, grain business representatives emphasized the importance of fighting the shadow grain market by strengthening control over the return of currency revenues when exporting crops, settling agro-logistical problems, improving phytosanitary procedures and diversifying into foreign markets. After all, eliminating obstacles and simplifying trade procedures will have a positive impact on the business climate in the agricultural sector.
