European Investment Bank may finance logistics projects in Ukraine
The European Investment Bank (EIB) is considering the possibility of financing the projects of Ukrainian grain market operators to expand and modernize their logistics infrastructure, Interfax Ukraine.
"The project is expected to remove existing bottlenecks related to transportation and storage of cereals, reduce the in-land transportation costs as well as increase the annual volume of exported agricultural commodities. It is also expected to have a positive impact overall on the environment and employment," according to the website of this international financial institution.
