"During the economic crisis the agricultural sector of our country has once again showed growth against the background of all other sectors of the economy. The Ukrainian agriculture helps not only ensure domestic demand, but also increase the supply of food and agricultural commodities on foreign markets," Yanukovych said.

Ukraine is also gradually expanding into new markets for agricultural products, including Japan, the United Arab Emirates and the Republic of South Africa.
