In 2016 the volume of capital investments in agriculture will exceed the last year figures nearly 1.5 times, to 44 billion UAH, the Head of investment department at the National Scientific Centre Institute of Agrarian Economics Nikolai Kisil declared.
In particular, the growth of capital investments was driven by a spike in investment activity after the recession in 2014, optimistic estimations of investors about the expected risks due to the current conflict in the eastern regions, as well as a high level of investment attractiveness and sales of agricultural products and by-products, growth of the export potential, etc.
Analysis of the dynamics of direct foreign investments demonstrated that in 2016 they overcame the lowest point of recession. In the following periods they should start gradual growing, Kisil noted. (APK-Inform/Business World Magazine)
