Recent feedback about the event:
Ukraine and the Netherlands are close partners in the agricultural sector, as is reflected in their levels of bilateral trade. The Netherlands are the world’s 2nd largest exporter of agricultural products and technology and the government has declared the agrifood sector to be a priority focus with a strong emphasis on innovative, sustainable technologies.
In turn, Ukraine is a global leader in agricultural production and is a leading global exporter of grains, vegetable oils and oilseeds, amongst others. In 2017 Ukrainian agricultural exports to the EU increased by 18.4% and the Netherlands were the no. 1 importer.
It is clear that the relationship is set to grow further and indeed there is much scope to increase cooperation in technology exchange and implementing best practice.
Therefore, building upon the success of our Agribusiness Forum in Kyiv in November, we are pleased to convene the Ukrainian Agro-Industrial & Food Forum, with the full official support of the Ukrainian Embassy in the Netherlands.
At the Forum you will hear from and meet with:
Olga Trofimtseva, Deputy Minister for European Integration at the Ministry of Agrarian Policy & Food of Ukraine, is preparing to share with attendees the latest positive trading volumes between Ukraine and the EU, in particular the Netherlands, and will outline key growth segments.
