To be an information source,
and a marketing/market promotion business
This statement of purpose for Aginukraine.com is meant to provide a sense of direction, the “WHY” Aginukraine.com exists. Agriculture and agri-industry are significant in and for Ukraine. It is in this area that Aginukraine.com is directed to:
Aginukraine.com is a Canadian owned business. It was started by Bernard Stephaniuk in 1998. Bernard was actively promoting Ukraine as a potential market for farm and ag-industry related technology, equipment, parts, commodities, services and investment many years before others saw the potential. His involvement goes back to 1992, and includes assisting in establishing a joint venture in Ukraine in 1994. Bernard was involved with the Canadian partner in the joint venture for one more year and participated in arranging the shipment of the first container load of farm equipment from Saskatchewan to the joint venture in Ukraine in 1995. He also assisted the Canadian partner in publishing the premiere issue of a magazine and registering it in Ukraine in 1994. Later he himself published a newsletter called Agriculture and Agri-Industry in Ukraine in 1996-97 and started work on Aginukraine.com in 1998. Bernard sees the challenge ahead as that of developing an integrated marketing strategy for Ukraine for used and new farm and ag-industry related technology, equipment, parts, commodities, service and training, including exporting from Ukraine, financing import/export sales (including 3 way arrangements), shipping, and manufacturing arrangements in Ukraine. Integral to this is communications including news as to agriculture and agri-industry, and distribution of information. He views Aginukraine.com as developing into an information source, and a marketing/market promotion business for agriculture and agri-industry in Ukraine.
