30.01.2017

The rapid development of Ukrainian agricultural sector amid the European integration brings European farmers more chances than risks.

Deputy Agrarian Policy and Food Minister of Ukraine Olha Trofimtseva said this at the 10th Europe – Ukraine Economic Forum.

"The rapid development of Ukrainian agricultural sector brings European farmers more chances than risks as it creates additional opportunities for cooperation and joint investment projects in different sub-sectors," the Deputy Minister said.

Trofimtseva noted that discussion with the representatives of Polish agricultural sector had shown that Polish colleagues appreciate the prospects of cooperation within the framework of the EU-Ukraine Free Trade Area agreement since it reduced the level of trade and investment barriers for the two countries' business. In addition, the FTA agreement brings Ukrainian producers closer to the European standards in the production and processing of agricultural products.
