Since 2015, market participants say, the import of processed grain (in particular, buckwheat groats) in Ukraine has increased almost fivefold, which almost completely coincides with the increase in exports of processed grain from the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Creating equal conditions for producers in Ukraine and Kazakhstan can protect the industry from destruction. Ukrainian entrepreneurs are calling for this. If the government does not take any measures, then in three years the Ukrainian processor of buckwheat groats will most likely disappear.
To prevent this, Ukrainian refiners propose to cancel the 20% duty on raw material supplies from Russia. Manufacturers believe that this trade barrier does not make sense, because it still does not affect the income of the Russian Federation.
