Increasing the production and export potential of the fruit and vegetable sector: challenges and prospects
Duration: August 2016 - December 2016
Development of the fruit and vegetable industry and its exports, in addition to direct effects in the form of an increase in physical volumes of production, carries a serious multiplier effect for such areas as manufacturing, storage infrastructure (refrigeration capacity), logistics (supply efficiency) and transport.
The key problem are non-sufficiently high rates of productivity growth in the production of fruits and vegetables, what inhibits the growth of production in general and exports in particular.
The purposes of the research include an analysis of the existing situation in the sphere of production and export of fruits and vegetables; and formulation of recommendations on policy improvement in this area.
