The hybrid information event “Strategy of agrarian sector development until 2030” was held at Agro Animal Show 2021 on February 17.
Organizers: German-Ukrainian Agricultural Policy Dialogue, IFWexpo Heidelberg GmbH.
According to the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, agricultural sector in Ukraine is undergoing a comprehensive reform course aimed at sustainable development of rural areas, increase of competitiveness of agricultural production, improvement of quality and safety of agricultural products, as well as preservation of natural resources.
Strategies of development of agrarian sector have to define long-term goals of these reforms. Hence they lay an important foundation for development of short- and middle-term solutions in the sphere of agricultural products. In this context the reestablished Ministry of agrarian policy and food of Ukraine plans to develop and adopt “Strategy of development of agrarian sector of Ukraine until 2030”.
That is why APD organizes a hybrid event to discuss strategical goals of agrarian sector development in Ukraine with the international exhibitors of Agro Animal Show 2021, representatives of Ukrainian agricultural business, regional governmental bodies and scientific institutions. Methodological experience of development of such strategies, importance of transparence and acceptance by the public, as well as approaches to political adoption of strategies were suggested for discussion by the expert of Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture of Germany.
Representatives of governmental bodies of Ukraine and Germany participated in the event. Due to quarantine restrictions not all the speaker could be present at the offline event, that is why they joined via Zoom.
