EU28 agri-food imports

Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba announced that Ukraine is intensifying its exports of value-added products.

"Our European partners note that unlike the world market of fresh products, where Ukraine is forming its reputation, processed fruit and vegetables have long been a strong side of our country around the world," he commented.

As a reminder, the European Union imports 35% of all Ukrainian agricultural commodities shipped for export.
