In the future, the food production will have to be increased by 70 percent and this objective may only be achieved with reliance on chemical industry. “The sector faces a great future and the chemical business is one of the most lucrative investment targets,” commented Head of the Board of Directors of Group DF.
He also pointed out that the President of Ukraine referred to the agriculture as to one of the key national priorities. “Perfectly clear messages were sent to nitrogen chemicals producers in the first instance. The agriculture can’t do without us. No fertilizers, no agriculture,” summarized Mr. Firtash.
