Key rules of the agricultural sector: have they have changed over the past year? What are the results of the Ukrainian government's work, and what have any enacted reforms caused? Reporting aspects and other issues will be discussed within the framework of the Ukrainian Agrarian Congress, which will also cover the issues of functioning of the world and Ukrainian agricultural markets and provide forecasts for long-term development of the market.
