15.03.2018

In 2018, Ukraine plans to start exporting domestic wheat to China and Vietnam and to liberalize exports to Indonesia.

This issue was discussed during a meeting of the Chairman of Ukraine’s State Service on Food Safety and Consumers Protection, Volodymyr Lapa, and representatives of the Committee for Grains and Oilseeds of the European Business Association, the press center of the State Service on Food Safety reported.

"The prospects for 2018 include the beginning of exports of Ukrainian wheat to China and Vietnam and the liberalization of exports to Indonesia, as well as the visit programs of representatives of the national plant protection organizations," Lapa said.

Earlier, Ukraine supplied only barley, soybeans and corn to China and Vietnam.

During the meeting, the parties also discussed the draft of phytosanitary requirements for the export of Ukrainian wheat to Indonesia, which is scheduled to be signed in April this year.

Ukraine is one of the world's leading exporters of agricultural products. The annual export of grain and oilseeds is about 40 million tons. In the 2016-2017 marketing year, the export of wheat amounted to more than 17.5 million tons.
