Ukrainian agrarian products may enter markets of Turkey and Israel in 2018 – Groysman


Ukrainian agrarian products are exported to 190 countries, the markets of Turkey and Israel may be opened for Ukraine by the end of the current year.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman stated this when congratulating farmers on their professional holiday during the solemn meeting in the Ukrainian House in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Speaking about the Ukrainian export of agricultural products, 190 countries of the world have trade relations with our agro-industrial complex, and our products are represented in these markets. Undoubtedly, it is very important for us to open new opportunities and new markets. I am deeply convinced that this year we will complete the negotiations with Turkey and will be able to establish a free trade zone. And by the end of the year, even until the end of November, an agreement with Israel on a free market will be signed," Groysman said.

According to him, this means new horizons for Ukraine.

"You form 17% of GDP, and due to your hands, your intelligence, your technologies, we are recognized all over the world," Groysman told Ukrainian farmers.
