    Ministry of Economy of Ukraine, posted 24 May 2024 18:24

    The first three agricultural enterprises received 25% compensation for the cost of purchased agricultural machinery and equipment from Ukrainian manufacturers. The total amount of compensation is UAH 220,000. This was announced by Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Economy.

    "The programme of partial compensation to farmers for the cost of purchased Ukrainian agricultural machinery is one of the components of support for local producers under the 'Made in Ukraine' policy. It has enabled farmers to purchase more modern machinery at lower costs and increase their productivity and competitiveness in the market. Importantly, by doing so, we are contributing to the growth of demand for Ukrainian agricultural machinery and aim to stimulate an increase in its production. We have seen this effect in previous years of the programme. This year, we have budgeted UAH 1 billion for compensation for the purchase of Ukrainian agricultural machinery," said Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Economy.

    The first three agricultural companies to receive compensation operate in Dnipropetrovsk, Ternopil and Cherkasy regions. The total value of the agricultural machinery they purchased is UAH 880,000.

    To receive 25% compensation for the cost of purchased machinery or equipment, an agricultural producer must choose a supplier from the list on the Ministry of Economy's website, purchase the necessary machinery and submit an application and supporting documents to an authorised bank. As of today, the List of Domestic Machinery and Equipment for the Agricultural Sector, the cost of which is partially compensated by budgetary funds, includes 6,691 nomenclature items of machinery and equipment from 64 Ukrainian manufacturers. The List is constantly updated in accordance with applications received by the Ministry. The programme involves 31 banks.
