Ukraine is among the top three global grain exporters
Ukraine is consistently among the top ten world producers of grain crops, and is also one of the three leading exporters of these agricultural products.
This statement was made in an interview with the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
According to the President, Ukraine has every chance to occupy a significantly larger share of the grain market. Due to the fact that the annual increase in the population of our planet amounts to 90.000.000 people, the demand for grain crops is also growing. This is the growth option for the Ukrainian grain market.
It should be added that last year the grain harvest reached 70.000.000 tons.
Today it is an absolute historical maximum. Never before have such harvests been collected in Ukraine, even under a collective farm system.
In addition, the President stressed that Ukraine is the number one exporter of sunflower oil, providing more than half of exports worldwide.
