Ukraine has the material and technical grounds for the development of pig farming and maintaining a sufficiently high level of this industry in the country, even during martial law. It is even possible to develop a program of more profitable activities in this area. It is advisable to attract foreign investments for the organization of operation. We believe that it is necessary to develop a program, the goal of which will be the availability of pork for all segments of the population of Ukraine in the trade network. Undoubtedly, it is necessary to change the vector of international trade activity — to reduce the export of grain and increase the export of pork. Also, identify such an export niche that will ensure more efficient activity of pig farms.
