EU needs to subsidize the manufacturing of grain hoppers to improve export, says Mykola Solskyi

published 19 September 2022 21:00

On September 19, upon the initiative of the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine, a roundtable “Grain exports of Ukraine” took place, dedicated to grain export from Ukraine through the neighboring states, namely Slovenia. Objective of the event – establishment of alternative export routes and alleviation of the food security of the world.

The Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Mykola Solskyi pointed out that as a result of the russian invasion and threats to block Ukrainian sea ports, the necessity to establish ground routes from Ukraine to Europe has become urgent.

In order to maintain food security, the Minister came up with initiative to subsidize the manufacturing of railway grain hoppers at the factories located in Poland, Slovenia and Romania. This will help transport grain crops by rail with no obstacles.

“For the routes to be stable and effective in the market economy, a few things need to be achieved. The grain arriving to Poland, Slovenia, Romania, Hungary needs to keep on moving. We can see there’s a substantial deficit of railway rolling stock to facilitate the delivery. The number of grain carriages in Ukraine is around 24 thousand, in Europe – around 12 thousand. Obviously, the need to increase the number of this type of cars is rather urgent,” said Mykola Solskyi.

The Minister emphasized that prioritizing the railway will make the routes commercially competitive, and will keep the food-related inflation at bay.

For reference, the Republic of Slovenia has one of the biggest rolling stock manufacturers in the European Union. The increase of the number of grain cars will help eradicate the deficit of rolling stock for the transportation of grain to the EU, and decrease the logistics expenses.
