Ukraine and Malta are interested in implementing joint projects in agricultural sector, especially in logistics, Deputy Agricultural Policy and Food Minister Olha Trofimtseva said.
"Despite the fact that bilateral trade in agriculture between our countries is small, we see a potential in cooperation in the investment area," Trofimtseva said.
She added that the creation of the distribution center could be interesting for some types of agricultural products and food, including processed products exported to African countries.
"It is important for us to approve the concrete business model for operation of this distribution center for Ukrainian food in Malta, taking into account all the economic factors," she said.
The sides decided to form a technical group to draw up a business model concept for the distribution center, which will be presented in the near term.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Malta Joseph Muscat to discuss economic co-operation, in particular in the field of agriculture and transport.
