"In 2018, we had a record harvest 70 million tonnes. Ukraine produces agricultural products worth UAH 850 billion. The country exported products worth USD 18.6 billion in 2018 alone," Kubiv noted.
At the same time, the EU's share in the total export structure of Ukrainian agricultural products increased to 33.5% in 2018.
“The Government, at the initiative of the Economic Development Ministry , has launched the state support program for manufacturers of agricultural equipment since 2017. This program allows Ukrainian manufacturers to receive partial compensation for the cost of their products and, consequently, to make their final cost more attractive to Ukrainian farmers,” the minister said. ■
