Ukraine to become the world's leading exporter of malting barley — AgroStrategy
By 2030, Ukraine will become the largest exporter of organic malting barley in the world according to the AgroStrategy presented by of the Ukrainian Institute for the Future (UIF) and Latifundist Media experts.
The Strategy is available on the UIF website.
Analysts expect Ukraine to become the main partner for the countries of the Middle East and North Africa having funds yet unable to produce own quality foodstuffs. Moreover, Ukrainian agrarians will cooperate with the U.A.E., Kuwait and Bahrain within the framework of long-term system programs.
"Under these agreements, we will grow crops for them on specifically allocated areas," analysts say.
By 2030, the role of Ukraine in food supplies to sub-equatorial Africa will increase significantly. Wheat, corn, flour and pasta from Ukraine will be in demand in the new market. Agriproducers will be able to establish a temperature-controlled supply chain of fresh fruit, in particular apples, berries and grapes to these countries.
"At the same time, Ukraine will be able to open new markets and become a supplier of eco-friendly products (mainly to Europe)," the AgroStrategy 2030 reads.
As previously reported, in January-June 2019 exports of agricultural products from Ukraine had reached USD 10.3 billion, USD 1.6 billion or 18.6% more from the corresponding period in 2018.
