A US agriculture firm, has announced a $100m (£71.5m) investment in a Ukrainian port.
Under a deal with Ukraine’s M.V. Cargo, the money will be used to build a grain terminal on the Black Sea which will boost agricultural exports.
The terminal will allow Ukrainian farmers to export an additional five million tons of grain.
Overseas companies have been reluctant to invest in Ukraine because of its ongoing struggle with Russia.
Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, said the deal was a first step in getting foreign investors to see the country as a “truly reliable and good place for making investments”.
