Ukraine has slightly reduced its own agricultural exports to the European Union, but retained the fourth place among the top five largest exporters to European countries.

The European Commission published the relevant data in its report “Monitoring EU Agri-Food Trade: Developments January-April 2021”.

“The top origins for EU agri-food imports in the first four months of 2021 included Brazil, United States, United Kingdom, Ukraine and China. These countries accounted for 34% of EU27 agri-food

imports in value terms,” reads the report.

In the list of the most important areas for European exports, Ukraine ranks 13th, accounting for 1.5% of European exports of agricultural products. In absolute terms, in January-April 2021, the deliveries of such goods from the EU to Ukraine grew by 7.3%.

As Ukrinform reported, in January-March 2021, compared to the same period in 2020, Ukraine’s imports of goods grew by 11.0%, to $15.02 billion, and exports – by 12.0%, to $13.71 billion.
