Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers plans to create an online platform through the Ukrainian Startup Fund to facilitate the marketing of products from small and medium-sized growers.
The initiative is being implemented in the framework of the government’s economic recovery program, the EP article says.
Promoting the remote marketing of agricultural products through an online platform is the highest government priority among the initiatives to support the agricultural sector. The platform's launch is planned for the 4th quarter of this year.
At the same time, the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Finance are providing aid for online sales and the digitalization of processes.
In September 2020, the legislation is planned to be amended to increase the surplus value in agriculture.
More specifically, the idea is to partially reimburse the cost of the construction and reconstruction of production facilities. They also plan to stimulate the creation of cooperatives, partially reimbursing the purchase of Ukrainian-made agricultural equipment.
