During a regular meeting on May 26, the Government has approved the procedure for using funds for the construction of inspection posts at the border. According to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, this program is aimed at improving the access of Ukrainian small and medium-sized farmers to world markets.
The Head of Government noted that the project budget amounts to UAH 75 million. The funds, in particular, will be used to create a system of requirements for food safety and requirements of export markets.
"This means that any Ukrainian farmer will be able to go to the relevant site and see the requirements for their products in any foreign market, where he plans to supply their goods," said Denys Shmyhal.
The Prime Minister also noted that exports of Ukrainian products in the first 4 months of this year had grown by almost 20%, or $3 billion compared to 2020.
