Transport infrastructure of Slobojanshchina is one of the factors conductive to the development of Ukrainian agrarian branch potential. That’s why one of the main events of International forum on family farming development AGROPORT-2014 dedicated to the topic Modern transport logistics – methods of product transportation and storage.

We are talking about the conference AGRO-AVIA held as a part of the forum in International airport “Kharkiv”. Its speakers are:

  • Vladyslav Ilyin, Head of commercial department of International airport “Kharkiv”;
  • Grygoriy Shcherban, CEO of Polex Express LLC (an official operator of the cargo terminal of International airport “Kharkiv”);

  • Valeriy Ostapchuk, i.A. Head of Kharkiv customs of Ministry of Revenue and Duties;
  • Vladymir Zakurdaev, Rotor Ukraine LLC.

This topic as a part of AGROPORT is not accidental. The international forum is unique not only because it is one of the main agricultural events in Eastern Europe and is held under the aegis of the UN but also because it is the first time when such a great event is held on the territory of the airport.

“It is obviously that advantageous location and possibilities of transport infrastructure of Kharkiv region are not fully used for region agribusiness development. That’s why at AGRO-AVIA we want to demonstrate the potential of possible cooperation that in its turn will become a new push for growth of investment attractiveness of Slobojanshchina and increase business activity in the region”, – Vladyslav Ilyin, Head of commercial department of International airport “Kharkiv”, mentioned.

The following questions will be raised at AGRO-AVIA:

-    peculiarities and rules of imports and exports of agricultural products on the territory of Ukraine;

-    development and possibilities of region transport infrastructure are the main requirements when entering foreign markets;

-    import and export operations in agriculture;

-    possibilities and advantages in using of the cargo terminal of Kharkiv airport.
