KIEV, March 6 (Itar-Tass) – Ukraine’s grain export may reach 23 million tonnes this year, Ukrainian Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food Nikolai Prisyazhnyuk told reporters on Wednesday.
“As for grain, the marketing year of 2012-2013 is passed rather stably and we hope that this republic’s grain export will be at 23 million tonnes,” he said.
“Up to date, agrarians have already delivered 18 million tonne of grain to the external markets, which is five million tonnes more than over the relevant period of the previous marketing year,” the minister said.
“In particular, Ukraine’s agricultural producers have already exported nine million tonnes of corn crops, 6.2 million tonnes of wheat and two million tonnes of barley,” Prisyazhnyuk said.
In his words, “we have already coordinated with traders the issue on the additional export of 300,000 tonnes of wheat.” Moreover, an issue on the supplies of another 200,000 tonnes of wheat to the foreign markets is expected to be coordinated in March, the minister added.
In the mean time, the food security of the republic is permanently in the focus of attention. The Ministry of Agricultural Policy and Food is steadily at work on the appropriate balance of grain with taking into account interests of farmers in order they can sell grain and draw funds for spring sowing and harvesting activities.
