“Work on opening new markets requires constant and systematic efforts of many government agencies and businesses. This is one of the important areas of our work," said Mahaletska.
In 2020-2021, the largest exports of Ukrainian apples were recorded to the following countries: Belarus, the United Arab Emirates, Austria, Moldova, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Oman, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Greece, Kuwait, Turkey and Mauritania.
According to Mahaletska, the work is underway to open the markets of Vietnam, China, Egypt, India and Israel for Ukrainian apple producers.
