Advisor to Ukrainian Agrarian Policy Minister: Silk Road is top priority for domestic agricultural producers


Using Silk Road infrastructure will allow Ukrainian agricultural producers to enter the Chinese market.

Advisor to Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Minister Vladyslava Rutytska said this at the 2016 Ukraine Silk Road Forum in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Our companies obtained the right to export dairy products. These products have a very limited shelf life. So, the possibility of using the Silk Road infrastructure is a top priority for us," Rutytska said.

According to her, delivery of goods by ship to China will take about 28-30 days, which makes impossible supplies of dairy products, fruit, vegetables and other products with a limited shelf life.

"The Silk Road infrastructure gives us the opportunity to do this for about 8-9 days or 10-11 days if there are problems with the delivery. Launch of the Silk Road is a top priority for all the agricultural producers," the Advisor to the Minister said.
