Traditionally, the Day of France “French experience – Ukrainian prospects” was held on February 22. Business program of the event consisted of two main panels: cooperatives – the way it works in France and management of agricultural enterprises in the conditions of changes. In order to join the discussion of the above-mentioned questions, experts in agricultural development at the Embassy of France to Ukraine, representatives of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, specialists of industry associations, resource companies and directors of agrarian households actively participated in the event. Such a format of event not only gives the opportunity to share international experience and enables Ukrainian manufacturers to learn current mechanisms of agribusiness improvement, but also gives a chance to join international community in discussion of prospective ideas and selection of new topics for consideration.
