GUIDE TO EPC

AGRI-FOOD organisations and technologies


Introduction Agri-Food is a key economic sector in Eastern Partnership Countries (EPCs). EPCs have a great deal of potential for the agri-food sector both nationallly and internationally. The AgriFood sector offers concrete social and economic opportunities for EPCs and EU countries. As you will see in this brochure, each country’s research institutes and private sector companies are developing new technologies in almost every agri-food area - from fisheries to winter wheat to livestock. European organisations have a lot to gain by collaborating with EPCs.

ARMENIA

BELARUS

The food and beverages industry provides a large part of the Armenian economy, generating USD 0.58 billion that represents about 50 percent of total manufacturing output and employing 18,000 people in 2009. Organic farming is considered an excellent business opportunity for farmers and investors involved in agriculture and food production. Armenia adopted a number of laws and amendments to existing laws in order to encourage agriculture and trade.

Among other EPCs, Belarus has the smallest share of individual farmers and the highest share of state owned enterprises. A 2009 World Bank Report on the agriculture sector noted that the international competitiveness of the farm sector remains low. The food, beverages and tobacco industry forms a large part of the economy, generating USD 4.55 billion. R&D represents 3.7 percent of total R&D expenditures where 90% is devoted to technological innovation.

GEORGIA

UKRAINE

The food, beverages and tobacco industry forms a large part of the economy, generating USD 0.7 billion that represents about 43 percent of manufacturing output. Labour productivity has grown over time. Since the Russian trade embargo (2006) on wine, spirits and mineral water, Georgian winemakers, with Government support, have taken steps to diversify exports and improve production quality to expand markets for their products. Georgia has adopted a number of laws to encourage agricultural and agro-industry growth and rural development.

The food, beverages and tobacco industry is one of the fastest-developing sectors of Ukraine’s economy, growing at an estimated 20-30% annually. It forms a large part of the economy, generating USD 20 billion. Ukraine is now ranked as one of the top five of 30 emerging countries for retail development. Ukraine has adopted a number of laws to encourage agricultural and rural development. Other regulations aiming to stimulate foreign investment were set up recently. In 2005 the State Agency of Ukraine for Investments and Innovations was established.

Potatoes are a very important crop in Georgia. High yield seeds, however, are not naturally occurring. Our biotechnological center has been working on virus free potatoes tube plants since 1992. We have improved upon the in vitro process for producing virus-free potato tube plants. We have also created a virus-free potato tube plants collection, which integrates Dutch, German, American, Ukrainian and Scottish varieties (55 varieties). Each of these plants can be multiplied according to demand.
