April 17 (Bloomberg) -- Ukraine’s Agriculture Ministry wants to keep tax preferences for agriculture companies until 2018.

Tax preferences, introduced in 1998, have helped stimulate investments in the agriculture industry in Ukraine, Agriculture Minister Mykola Prysyazhnyuk said in an e-mailed statement today.

The government considered an option to make local farms pay a 7 percent value-added tax, Income and Tax Minister Oleksandr Klymenko said on April 1.

Ukraine, which according to U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates is the world’s biggest exporter of sunflower oil and fourth biggest exporter of corn, swung to a state budget deficit in the first two months of the year on higher spending.
