As of today, participation has already been confirmed by about 20 exporters from Ukraine as well as importers from India, Malaysia, Viet Nam, Hong Kong, Oman, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands.
As it is confirmed by the analysis conducted by Fruit-Inform, South-East Asia and Middle East stand a good chance to become a better alternative to sellers of Ukrainian apples, cherries, berries and other products, as buyers from those regions are able to pay higher prices (compared with Russia) for high-quality fresh produce successfully grown in Ukraine. Moreover, those markets will primarily be opened by those Ukrainian companies, which development strategy has export focus as a system element.
The export trade forum enables to have the access to the most profitable markets of Asia and Middle East, which are growing faster than any other in the world. Asia has increased its fruit imports by 52% over the past five seasons, and now they total $38,4 bln. Moreover, the Asian market is now in the process of changing its suppliers due to the trade conflict with the USA, and India has already done its first steps in the conforming apple import phytosanitary regulations with Ukraine.
