Business and MinRETS signed a Memorandum of Cooperation in the grain market
The grain sector plays an important role in the agricultural sector of Ukraine and has great potential for development. Thus, according to market operators, grain exports from Ukraine will increase to 70 million tons in the coming years. In particular, Ukraine exported a record volume of grain – 50.4 million tons in 2018/2019 marketing year. In January-June 2019, the grain export amounted to 26.2 million tons. Accordingly, the production, processing and export of grain and oilseeds provide significant budget revenues and are important sectors of employment for the population of the country. In addition, grain sector plays an important role in ensuring the food and financial stability of the state.
