"I don't know whether we will have time. We have one session week - that's next, and then the Verkhovna Rada we have a resting. I don't know whether we will be able to appoint a new Minister and create a Ministry so quickly. But the maximum in September when deputies will return to work, we will assign, we will have a separate Minister of agriculture", - stressed the head of state.
The Cabinet appointed the head of the Commission for reorganization of the Ministry of agrarian policy and food of Ukraine Alexander Black. On 6 March, Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal declared intention of the newly elected Cabinet of Ministers to create a separate Ministry of agro-industrial complex, as well as a separate office for the member of the government, which will deal with the development of the industry.
