The Ukrainian agricultural sector has shown that it can quickly adapt to work in war conditions, even despite the loss of production, Taras Vysotsky noted.
According to the results of 2023, agricultural production in Ukraine will decrease by 10% compared to last year. This was stated by the First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Taras Vysotsky, the press service of the ministry reported on Saturday, May 20.
According to him, the Ukrainian agricultural sector has shown that it can quickly adapt to work in war conditions, even despite the loss of production.
“In 2023, agricultural production will decrease by 10% compared to 2022, but production productivity, product exports and the work of the domestic market will be maintained,” Vysotsky said during a discussion with French business representatives on the topic “Sustainability of the Ukrainian economy: focus on the agricultural sector and logistics”, which took place in Kiev.
In addition, over the past few weeks, the issue of maintaining the export of Ukrainian products remains important. Due to restrictions in the work of the grain corridor, Ukraine exports more agricultural products towards the EU.
The Deputy Minister added that the decision of the European Commission to prolong for another year the zero duty on exports from Ukraine is a very positive signal and support.
