11326519286_c9a07ae0bf_oDuring the World Food Prize in October, I was fortunate to meet some people from Ukraine and learn more about the US-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC).

(That’s not a typo – they spell it Kyiv not Kiev – and it’s just Ukraine, not THE Ukraine)

Via Skype I was able to talk with Williams about the financial picture for farmers and the export industry right now, the new minister of agriculture for the country, an agribusiness conference scheduled for this month that has been postponed, and much more.
