Export potential of sugar in 2012-2013 marketing year will make up about 200 tons, first deputy agrarian policy and food minister of Ukraine Ivan Bisyuk said in interview.

"The export potential of the industry is forecasted at 200 thousand tons. The CIS countries are traditional markets for Ukrainian sugar. However, today they are closed due to high rates of import duty," Bisyuk said.

He also noted that, as part of negotiations to establish EU-Ukraine free trade area, it has been agreed to establish export quotas for Ukrainian sugar to the EU in the amount of 20 thousand tons per year.

In addition, according to Bisyuk, about 250 tons of sugar per year is exported as confectionery.

"We have the agreement with the EU on free trade confectionery, which increases the potential of such supplies to more than 300 thousand tons," the first deputy agrarian policy and food minister said.
