Ukraine: Grain Sector Review and Public Private Policy Dialogue
Report Series - N. 15 - December 2010
This study was commissioned by the EBRD in the context of the FAO/EBRD "Ukraine Grain Sector Review and Policy Options" project ("the Project"). The main objective of the Project - financed by the Government of Canada and FAO - was to encourage discussions between policy-makers and the private sector on improved policies for the Ukrainian grain sector.
The potential of Ukraine to produce and export larger quantities of grain through improved yields, increased acreage and better access to export markets is strong. Increased production and export of grains would constitute a source of additional export revenues, farm income and rural employment. However, in order to realize Ukraine's potential in the grain sector, a number of structural constraints and policy bottlenecks need to be removed.
