The Minister of Agriculture and Food Kiril Vatev met with the Ambassador of Hungary to Bulgaria H.E. Miklos Boros, in the Ministry. The two officials discussed the licensing regime for importing agricultural products from Ukraine to Bulgaria. Minister Vatev said that regarding the licensing regime, there is coordination between the Prime Ministers of Ukraine and Bulgaria and the Ministers of Agriculture. "Ukraine has the obligation to inform us who sends goods from their side and who receives them in Bulgaria. Only after this condition is met the export and import could be realized," explained the minister.

From the Ukranian side, according to a decision of the Ukrainian government, the company should stop transit and lose the right to export for six months.
