The Ukrainian agricultural sector continues to play an important role in ensuring global food security
Ukraine has partnered with the Lagos Free Zone company to build a grain terminal at the Lekki Port in Nigeria, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine reported on June 26.
The signing of a joint memorandum on the matter took place in London on the sidelines of the Ukraine Recovery Conference.
“The cooperation between the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Lagos Free Zone Company will be aimed at creating the necessary infrastructure to ensure uninterrupted supply of Ukrainian agricultural products to both Nigeria and the entire African continent,” said Taras Vysotskyi, the First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.
“The main goal is to ensure food security in the regions that need it most.”
The Ukrainian agricultural sector continues to play an important role in ensuring international food security, particularly given global population growth, the minister added.
The Lekki Deep Sea Port in Nigeria is the country’s first fully automated port. It is a joint project of the Nigerian government, the Lagos State government, the owner of Lagos Free Zone (Tolarams Group) from Singapore, and the China Harbour Engineering Company (CNEC).
