Organizer – A7 CONFERENCES. Official Carrier – Turkish Airlines, Investment partner – A7 CAPITAL. In the framework of AGRO-2018.
Venue: Liner Rosa Victoria, Kyiv, Naberezhno-Khreschatytska St., berth No. 1.
Time: June 8, 2018 (17:00-23:00).
In the last decade, agribusiness enterprises have made a big step towards marketing, thus Ukrainian products have gradually started to enter the international market, moreover - in these markets Ukrainian producers have proved to be competitive. The growth of export volumes of agricultural products and food industry in 2017 amounted to 19.5%, which in cash equals 2.6 billion dollars. However, problems still exist, because even in the Ukrainian domestic market of Ukrainian producers, they can squeeze more expensive, but more qualitative, foreign goods. In 2017, the volume of export of agricultural products from Ukraine to the EU grew by 27% compared to 2016, which is in the monetary equivalent of 1.2 billion euros. However, at the same time, the export of agro-food products from the European Union to Ukraine has increased by more than 200 million euros.
One of the reasons is de-technologicalization and deindustrialization of Ukraine, and its positioning as a raw material base for leading European countries. However, Ukraine has already embarked on the introduction of technologies, albeit at a high pace. An example among today's world leaders in agriculture can become Israel. The low index of agricultural land suitable for farming - only 20% - is offset by the high efficiency of innovative technologies. For example, the automated almond harvesting process is only 30 seconds. Sometimes even manufacturers who innovate face problems - insufficient production capacity, that is, the inability to process products in a timely manner. Losses are also in the process of processing due to outdated equipment at the enterprises. The competitiveness of Ukrainian producers is reduced due to the lack of transportation and storage of products. In general, only 3/5 of the produced agricultural products reach the consumer. The solution to these problem points, the experience of international companies, the real opportunities for attracting investment and much more, will be discussed at the Ukrainian agriculture export forum on June 8, 2018.
The first Ukrainian agriculture investment night will be a unique event in Ukraine that brings together influential players in the industry, Ukrainian producers, international investors, financial leaders, profile associations, embassies, leading media and related industries.
