Ukraine could export up to 75% of the grain harvested this year – Shmyhal
This year, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy forecasts a harvest of over 79 million tons. “About 25% of the harvested grain is enough for domestic needs, and the rest should be exported. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a government meeting on Tuesday.
“We should be building bridges on our western border now, not erecting walls. This primarily concerns Ukrainian agricultural exports. We need wide transit routes for food exports. This is important for the sustainability of our economy. This is important for the world, because it is global food security,” Shmyhal said.
According to the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy forecasts this year’s harvest at over 79 million tons, which is 10% more than last year.
“A good harvest means that Ukraine will retain its strategic importance as a guarantor of global food security. About 25% of the harvested grain is enough for our domestic needs, while the rest needs to be exported. Because it is resources for farmers, it is foreign exchange earnings for the state, it is food for starving countries,” he said.
In this regard, the government is counting on the effectiveness of the mechanism of verification and control of Ukrainian agricultural exports proposed by Ukraine.
