Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Minister Taras Kutovyi has stated this during his meeting with Czech Agriculture Minister Marian Jurecka within the framework of the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture in Berlin, the press service of the Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry reports.
“The systematic mutually beneficial development of trade and economic relations in the agro-industrial sector is important for Ukraine and the Czech Republic. Foreign trade turnover came to $40.2 million over eleven months of 2016. We should work to increase it,” Kutovyi said.
According to him, the promising areas of bilateral cooperation include crop farming (breeding and seed growing), veterinary medicine and phytosanitary science.
“In our phytosanitary operations, we strictly follow international requirements and international standards for phytosanitary measures, preventing the entry of pests into countries. Currently, there have been no outstanding issues related to plant and crop product trade between Ukraine and the Czech Republic. All issues are resolved on a routine basis at the level of national services,” Kutovyi noted.
At the end of the meeting, Kutovyi invited the Czech agriculture minister to take part in the 'Agro Animal Show 2017' international exhibition in Kyiv and the opening ceremony of the Ukrainian-Czech Agricultural Forum scheduled for February 15, 2017.
