Ukraine’s Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Mykola Solskyi met with Senegal’s Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development, and Food Security Aly Ngouille Ndiaye during a Ukrainian delegation’s visit to African countries.
This was announced on the Ukrainian government portal, the CFTS portal reports.
Solskyi and Ndiaye discussed the possibility of implementing new logistics projects involving the storage of Ukrainian grain in so-called grain hubs in Senegal.
The two countries’ agriculture ministries concluded a Memorandum of Understanding during the meeting.
The document provides for development of bilateral trade in agricultural products, cooperation on scientific research, investment, and establishment of relations between state institutions and private organizations.
Solskyi said Ukraine was making maximum efforts to continue exporting the necessary volumes of food to African countries despite the war in the country.
According to him, Ukraine is ready to increase the volume of its agricultural exports and consider the possibility of implementing new logistics projects in Senegal.
He said that these projects would focus on the possibility of storing Ukrainian grain in so-called grain hubs.
According to him, their creation will ensure the predictability of sales, stabilize food prices for African countries, and increase confidence in the necessary volumes and quality of grain.
