The climatic conditions of this year, despite the long dry period, have given the opportunity to grow significant grain harvest in Ukraine. It allows to ensure internal needs of the food market and livestock and to create export potential, head of the Verkhovna Rada’s Committee on Agrarian Policy and Land Relations Hrehoriy Kaletnyk considers.

According to him, this year, the export potential of grain will amount to approximately 20 million tons. The introduction of quotas or export duties on grain exports is possible only for subjective reasons.

"There are no objective reasons for this," he said.

In any case, according to the deputy, every decision of the government should be supported by appropriate payments, analytics and clear vision of the market situation. "In addition, all market participants should be informed in advance on the state’s intent. This will remove the unnecessary stress and save employers from additional costs," Hrehoriy Kaletnyk said.

He also believes that the targeted state support for agricultural producers will help Ukraine to become one of the world's leading providers of food.

On September 15, when the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine should introduce the draft state budget for 2013 to the Verkhovna Rada, the Committee headed by the deputy will offer to include the funding of real support for farm and medium-sized agricultural enterprises in the government expenditure. Additionally, the Committee will propose to allocate funds for the construction and maintenance of rural roads and support for social facilities.
