Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal, during a meeting at the beginning of June, dedicated to the state of irrigation with representatives of different ministries, called for more active promotion to attract investments from foreign financial partners.
It is necessary not only to restore old reclamation systems, but also to build a new modern infrastructure following the example of leading countries. One of the options for implementing this task is a public private partnership with a company that is a world leader in this area.

Shmyhal said that competent persons should not wait for legislative initiatives on land irrigation projects, but should start working in this direction right now.
The President of Ukraine has set an ambitious task – to start projects on irrigation of land this year, in particular, to organise and launch pilot projects in Odessa region, which will subsequently be expanded to other Southern regions.
According to the website of the government of Ukraine, following the meeting, Shmyhal instructed the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food to accelerate the implementation of goals for land irrigation projects in Ukraine and begin the process of negotiations to organise cooperation in this area with leading companies.
