The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food First Deputy Minister Taras Vysotskyi, an Ukrinform correspondent reports, referring to the ministry’s press service.
“Ukraine’s agricultural sector has shown that it can quickly adapt to work amid the war, even despite the loss of production,” Vysotskyi noted.
In his words, Ukraine’s agricultural production volumes will reduce by 10% in 2023 compared to last year. Meanwhile, the productive capacity, exports, and the domestic market performance will be maintained.
In recent weeks, the issue of preserving the export of Ukrainian products has been important.
According to Vysotskyi, due to the limited performance of the grain corridor, Ukraine is exporting more agricultural products to the EU. In this regard, the European Commission’s decision to extend the zero duty on exports from Ukraine for another year is a very positive signal and assistance.
