KIEV, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- Ukraine has a potential to become a "granary of the world" if it implements a series of projects to enhance irrigation of its fertile soils, the country's Agriculture Minister Taras Kutovyi said on Monday.

"With the restoration and the development of irrigation systems, Ukraine has prospects to increase its grain production to 100 million tons per year and to boost its food output to the amount sufficient to feed between 400 and 500 million people," Kutovyi was quoted as saying by the government press service.

This year, Ukraine will start a major overhaul of its irrigation network, Kutovyi said, adding that by 2021, the East European country plans to install new irrigation units over an area of at least 500,000 hectares.

The implementation of the projects would require between 1.5 billion U.S. dollars and 2 billion dollars in investment, the minister said.

Currently, less than 2 percent of Ukraine's arable farmland of 32 million hectares is covered under irrigation.

Last year, Ukraine has become one of the world's big grain producers, harvesting 66 million tons of crops. Enditem

WASHINGTON, March 10 (Xinhua)-- The World Bank said on Monday that it would provide up to 3 billion U.S. dollars for Ukraine in 2014 to help the country deliver much-needed economic reforms.

The World Bank said in a statement that it has received a request for support from the interim Ukrainian government and stands ready to assist the government with formulating and implementing a comprehensive program of structural reforms to address challenges.

"We are committed to supporting the people of Ukraine in these difficult times and very much hope that the situation in the country stabilizes soon," said World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

Ukraine's economy is facing a number of serious challenges that will require urgent action in the short term as well as sustained reform over the medium and longer term Nike Air Max 1 Vypredaj , the Washington-based institution said.

"Priorities will need to be given to restoring macroeconomic stability, strengthening the banking sector, reforming the energy sector, seriously tackling corruption and improving accountability Nike Air Max Thea Vypredaj , enhancing the investment climate and better targeting social assistance towards the poor and vulnerable," it added.

The political crisis has cost Ukraine economically, as the country is facing a possible debt default. Ukraine needs some 35 billion dollars in aid to improve its economy, according to the country's Finance Ministry.

Official from the International Monetary Fund said Friday that its fact-finding mission that has been working in Kyiv from March 4 is progressing well Nike Air Max Tavas Vypredaj , and the Fund stands ready to help the Ukrainian people and support the authorities' economic program to help put Ukraine firmly on track to good economic governance and sustainable growth.
