April 22, 2022

 The bloody war in Ukraine has been going on for almost two months now. Courageous and brave soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine defend our Motherland every day. In such conditions, every Ukrainian has a task to do as much as possible at his position: to work where possible to prevent the destruction of economic, social and cultural achievements of our people.

Realizing this, the scientific and pedagogical staff of NULES of Ukraine, in particular the Production and Investment Management Department together with the Department of Social Work and Rehabilitation of NULES of Ukraine, continue their work. This applies not only to training sessions, but also to the organization of various events that have become traditional and are held annually.

Thus, on April 19-20, 2022, the VI International Scientific and Practical Online Conference of Students, Postgraduates and Young Scientists "The Role of Youth in the Development of the Agrarian sector of Ukraine" was organized by the Production and Investment Management Department, Faculty of Agrarian Management and Humanitarian-pedagogical Faculty of NULES of Ukraine. The conference was co-organized by Chernivtsi Institute of Trade and Economics of the National University of Trade and Economics, National Aviation University, Pomeranian Academy (Poland, Slupsk), University of Haifa (Israel), Center for Business Innovation and Transformation AKG Global Support Services ltd., India.

It should be noted that this conference has become traditional and is held annually in the spring. The aim of the conference is to reveal the scientific potential of students, graduate students and young scientists, promote cooperation in the field of agricultural science, establish and disseminate scientific and educational, information links and cooperation at the national level. The formation of a culture of interdisciplinary communication and a comprehensive discussion of the development of the agricultural sector is incredibly relevant in the conditions of war, as food security issues are becoming especially acute.

Given the martial law, the conference "The role of youth in the development of Ukraine's agro-industrial complex" was held remotely and reaffirmed that one of the most important tasks today is to listen to young people's views on various aspects of economic and social development, including Ukraine's agro-industrial complex.

In conclusion, it should be noted once again that the role of youth in economic and social development in general, and the development of the agricultural sector in particular, is constantly growing. Youth is the future of the nation, and now, in conditions of war, preserving the potential of the nation is not just an important task, but a strategic task that will further determine the development of our country. All Ukrainian people, the whole of Europe, the whole civilized world are looking forward to the victory of our glorious Motherland in the war. We are all waiting for a peaceful life. At the same time, by organizing such events as the conference "The Role of Youth in the Development of the Agrarian sector of Ukraine", we are actively working to restore the capacity lost due to the war, move to a new level of economic and social development, support our youth and involve them in scientific work.

So we work for Peace and Victory!
