 Taras Kutovyi, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine said that the Ministry has changed the focus from supporting large holdings, to support small and medium-sized enterprises. He stated this during his speech on the ICTV channel in the program "Freedom of Speech".

 «We have changed the focus in the ministry from the support of major holdings to support of small and medium-sized players. And this is the accent that dominates both in the Ministry and in the Cabinet of Ministers. Supporting small and medium-sized farmers is one of the most important directions of the Ministry’s strategy "3 + 5" », - said Kutovoy.

 The Minister recalled that the specific support of small farmers will be 1% of the gross agricultural output. At the present time we have managed to declare this position. We discussed a lot, and the budget, which is served to Verkhovna Rada fully, reflects our position. That is 5.5 billion hryvnia will be transferred in the next year to support small and medium-sized farmers, if this decision supports Verkhovna Rada ", - the minister added.
