The investment potential of Ukraine’s agricultural sector, even under the current difficult conditions, is at least $34 billion. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said this during the opening of the 5th Ukrainian-German Economic Forum.
“The investment potential of the Ukrainian agricultural sector is at least $34 billion. This is what we see today. Each invested euro will definitely bring a guaranteed profit already in the near future, immediately after the end of the war,” said the head of the government.
According to him, the agro-industrial complex is the locomotive of the Ukrainian economy, which before the full-scale invasion of Russia showed growth at the level of 5-6% every year and made up a significant percentage of GDP.
“Today, due to the occupation, mining, export blockade of our ports, this sector is losing. But, I am convinced, thanks to European and German investments, it will quickly recover,” the Prime Minister said.
He also mentioned the Green Deal. “We see ourselves as a climatically modernized state. European investments in “clean” Ukrainian production are a step towards the implementation of the “green transition”, D. Shmyhal said.
