Tridge summary

In the initial months of 2024, Ukraine experienced a significant increase in live poultry imports, with a 10.7% rise in volume to 633 tons and a 28.7% surge in value to $11.2 million, compared to the previous year. The main suppliers were Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. This growth aligns with the European Parliament's Committee on International Trade's decision to approve trade liberalization for Ukraine and Moldova, which includes eliminating import duties and export quotas for agricultural products to EU countries from June 2024 to June 2025.

Ukraine's agricultural product imports in 2023 amounted to $7.1 billion, marking an almost 13% increase from the prior year.
