Where will the next ships with wheat go as part of the Grain from Ukraine food initiative and for what purpose did the leadership of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine visit African countries, Deputy Minister Markiyan Dmytrasevich told the “Social Resistance” broadcast.

“African countries are most acutely in need of food, and also suffer from rising food prices. The worst thing is that they suffer from its deficiency. First of all, we wanted to explain to them the real reason for their humanitarian crisis, and establish strong trade relations with them. For example, Kenya and Nigeria are very much looking forward to our grain,” said Markiyan Dmytrasevich.

According to him, all four countries visited by the Ukrainian delegation: Senegal, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria are open to establishing close cooperation with Ukrainian business. He also noted that there were active negotiations on the organization of grain hubs in African ports.

“They are being built in order to be able to receive grain in larger volumes. It also helps improve logistics. It is beneficial for Ukraine from the point of view of increasing its presence in these markets. We are talking about western and eastern Africa. For the countries there, this is an opportunity to make agricultural products cheaper due to stable supplies,” the Deputy Minister emphasized.

He also added that all countries discussed the Grain from Ukraine food program, which Ukraine implements together with the World Food Programme. We will remind that the fourth vessel with 30,000 tons of wheat was sent a few days ago as part of the initiative. The cargo is headed to Ethiopia. Together, 110,000 tons of wheat have already been shipped to needy countries as part of the program.

“Now we are organizationally preparing the dispatch of 3 more vessels. We expect the next wheat bulkers to go to Kenya, Yemen and Sudan. The volume of these loadings will be 25,000 to 30,000 tons,” summed up Markiyan Dmytrasevich.
