The export of Ukrainian goods to China in 10 months of 2021 increased by 20% and amounted to 12% of all Ukrainian exports.
This was announced by the head of the State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection of Ukraine Vladyslava Magaletska during a meeting of the Council for Foreign Economic Activity at the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
According to her, the most considerable growth occurred in meat and edible offal – 164%, in grain the increase was 46%, in vegetables – 25%.
Export to China is just as interesting for Ukrainian producers and exporters as it is difficult to open new positions. Today, an increase in supplies to the export direction of the PRC is one of the priorities for the State.
She added that today China is the leader in the number of commodity items for which work is underway to open markets for Ukrainian producers. This list includes flour, fish and fish products, eggs and egg products, wheat, rapeseed, sorghum, soybean meal, apples, blueberries, poultry meat, peas, beans, cherries, pet food, malt, mixed feed for farm animals, poultry, and pond fish, beef collagen casings, frozen semi-finished products containing products of animal origin, vegetable origin and / or processed products of animal origin, cereals, raspberries.
According to Magaletskaya, the next stage of opening the export of fresh blueberries to China is expected shortly, which provides for a review of the conditions for the production of this berry in a remote online format, as well as the approval of documents on the opening of markets for poultry, peas, and blueberries.
