The event is renowned for attracting a unique cross-section of agricultural stakeholders, including senior government officials, shareholders of the major agriholdings, present and potential international strategic investors, agrarian investment funds, leading banks and IFIs, as well as respected global agricultural experts and analysts                         

The 2016 agenda will focus on Ukraine’s drive for new export markets, how to channel investment  effectively into the value chain, in addition to case studies of the strategic development plans of all the leading agriholdings. Central topics to be addressed by an expert speaker faculty will include:

  • Identifying and developing ties with new priority export markets, such as North Africa, East Asia and the EU
  • How to stimulate the switch to production and export of value-added products away from simply raw commodities
  • Where is investment most required in the value chain: logistics and infrastructure, developing processing capacity and financing the modernisation of equipment
  • Evaluating the process being made in the reform  process: liberalisation of the land market, elimination of excessive permits and licences, tax reform
  • Collateralisation of leased land as the key to unlocking and protecting investment in agriculture.
