The Governments of Ukraine and Bulgaria agreed on the procedure for the export of certain types of agricultural products. In particular, the procedure for applying the procedure for the verification of exports to Bulgaria of four crops was agreed – this refers to rapeseed, corn, wheat and sunflower.

This regime provides for issuing licenses after bilateral consultations with the country to which the export will be made. The parties also agreed to carefully monitor the movement of agricultural products.

“This is very important for supporting the Ukrainian economy right now, when part of the traditional routes for Ukrainian exports are blocked. The Government is ready for further joint work with the EU regarding the full settlement of the export of domestic agricultural products through the territory of neighbouring countries,” Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Economy of Ukraine, said.

According to government officials, domestic exporters may start applying for the relevant licenses.

“Now it is important for us to use all the opportunities to export agricultural products, now we have another one. The Bulgarian government lifted the restrictions and supported our action plan for the verification and approval of the export of certain types of agricultural goods. Finally, all technical issues between our countries have been agreed upon and the Ukrainian Government can start accepting applications from exporters,” Mykola Solskyi, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, said.
