In this globalized world, we are constantly competing for capital, technology and knowledge, so the arrival of foreign investors is important for the development of our economy. We will work further to improve the business environment, simplify procedures and ensure stability and predictability for Ukrainian and foreign investors," the minister wrote.

As the Institutional Investor research group reports, the fund managers investing in Europe, the Middle East and Africa are eyeing Ukraine, Romania, Nigeria and Kenya for deals over the next year.

As noted, Ukraine’s agricultural sector is increasingly attractive to investment managers as it has one of the best land banks for agricultural product cultivation globally.

Ukraine has many issue relating to declining demographics, low productivity, the ongoing conflict in the Donbas region, and the need for outside aid ie IMF bailout.

Nevertheless, for contrarians like myself this represents an excellent opportunity. I really am excited about the long term opportunity in agricultural in Ukraine. There are huge amounts of excellent farmland that is really not being exploited to its maximum.

This will change as foreign capital and expertise comes into the country. Starting from a low base will yield exponential rewards over the upcoming 5-10 years.
