KIEV, January 03, 12:33 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine keeps increasing grain exports, which grew by one third between July and December 2013 against the same period of the 2012-2013 market year, the press service of the Ukrainian Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food reported on Friday.
“In 2013 Ukraine overfulfilled its plans for exports of novel corn. A total of 18.5 million tons of Ukrainian grain were supplied to foreign markets, which is a four-million-ton growth year-on-year,” the press service quoted Minister Nikolai Prisyazhnyuk as saying.
Earlier, the minister told Tass that in 2013 Ukraine had a record grain harvest of 61.5 million tons, giving the country an opportunity “not only to ensure food security, but also to be among world leaders in grain exports”.
“In this marketing year (July 2013-June 2014) Ukraine plans to sell about 32 million tons of grain to foreign markets,” he said, adding that only the US could boast higher figures.
