Egypt and Saudi Arabia also remain leaders in terms of imports of
Ukrainian grain. This year Ukraine plans to expand grain markets and
increase exports.

“Last year was very successful for Ukraine in terms of the
consolidation of its positions on foreign markets. Therefore, we not
only ensured food security in the state, but also managed to secure our
status as a reliable partner. A sign of this is the fact that European
countries started actively buying domestic grain crops, which doubted
their quality five years ago. In 2012, the EU purchased 7.7 million
tonnes of grain worth $1.9 billion, becoming the largest importer of
Ukrainian grain,” Agricultural Policy and Food Minister Mykola
Prysiazhniuk said.

Egypt is in second place in terms of domestic grain imports, buying
5.5 million tonnes of grain for $1.4 billion last year. Saudi Arabia is
third, after it exported 1.9 million tonnes of grain worth $509 million.
