Ukraine has rather good prospects for strengthening the positions of domestic agricultural commodities on the world market, declared the Verkhovna Rada deputy, President of Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation, Leonid Kozachenko.
According to him, in order to hold up its status of agrarian superstate, Ukraine has to invest at least 70 bln USD in the agricultural industry, and enlarge the production volumes of foodstuffs.
Ukraine will consume nearly 20% of the produced commodities, and export the remaining volumes, which will significantly replenish the state budget. Ukraine requires nearly 10 years of consolidated and stable work for development of effective public policy, deregulation and fight against corruption, to achieve the reporting objective. Only in such case, in the future Ukraine can confidently reach the second position following the USA by exports of agricultural products, said the President of Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation.
