Summary

————-

Over the last years, Ukraine’s agri-food sector demonstrated resilient growth and developed into a key source of foreign exchange for the economy. In 2017 it accounted for 14.5% of GDP and more than 42% of total goods exports. This positive development came against a significant reduction in the volume of agricultural budget support over the recent years. The structure of the support also changed, moving from tax benefits to direct support in the form of input subsidies. However, the way the direct support programmes are designed and implemented, as well as the negative effects of input subsidies on efficiency and productivity, raise serious concerns about their sustainability and effectiveness. A more targeted and modern approach is needed in order to address the current major problems of the sector (shortage of workers and financial constraints) under severe fiscal constraints facing the country.
