“We have already agreed on a list of companies from the Ukrainian and British sides that can carry out export-import operations. In Ukraine, 362 producers are involved in foreign economic activities and export products to the United Kingdom. First, these are dairy farmers, then – chicken meat producers. In addition, these are exporters of fish, honey, wheat and, oddly enough, snails," Magaletska said during the UK-Ukraine agribusiness webinar, “Opportunities for Ukraine to contribute to the UK’s food security,” an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
In turn, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United Kingdom Vadym Prystaiko said that Ukraine received about GBP 3 billion as investments from British agricultural enterprises. "Ukraine is currently the UK's fifth largest supplier and sixth largest partner. Considering Ukraine's position in the global arena, Britain can benefit greatly from this. In the Ukrainian environment, this is about GBP 3 billion - the amount of investment that British agricultural enterprises have brought to Ukraine,” said Prystaiko.
The UK-Ukraine agribusiness webinar was held in partnership with the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom.
