Country Director EBRD in Ukraine Sevki Acuner said this during a press conference in Kyiv, dedicated to the signing of the $50 million loan agreement with the Nibulon company.

"We are implementing the projects which are aimed at expanding the export opportunities of Ukraine, and not only in the agricultural sector," Acuner said.

According to him, this year the EBRD is ready to invest in Ukrainian agriculture, logistics and renewable energy. However, the list of specific projects will depend on the proposals the Bank will receive.

"The volume of investments will increase depending on the striving," Acuner said.

The EBRD is the largest international financial investor in Ukraine. Since the beginning of its operation in the country in 1993, the Bank has committed to provide almost EUR 12.1 billion on about 400 projects.

Today, February 15, the EBRD signed the $50 million loan agreement with the Nibulon company, one of the largest Ukrainian grain market operators.
