“There is a stereotype that the agrarian sector of Ukraine is not modern and not receptive to innovation. We want to challenge this myth in the world arena and present new and successful projects for international investors. Ukraine is a unique platform for new technologies, we have the largest holdings, advanced and open to cooperation, a strong human resources base for technical specialists, interesting and successful startups, and, of course, a positive development of the Agritech industry. We intend to show all this to the international community and start a dialogue with investors,” said Yulia Poroshenko.
