Agrotechnology from Finland is known for its high quality, efficiency and reliability. In June, this expertise will take the Ukrainian stage as a delegation of Finnish companies come to Kiev to present their latest products and solutions, and also to visit local companies.

The delegation is organised in cooperation with the Finnish Embassy in Ukraine and the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club (UCAB) and will take place during the International Agroindustrial Trade Fair AGROFORUM in Kiev 6-9 June 2018.

Finnish companies are ready to bring something new to the Ukrainian market with products and solutions that are designed for maximum efficiency, safety and sustainability,” says Elina Puszkarzewicz, Program Director, Agrotechnology from Finland.
