Iryna Yevhenivna Pavlik


Transboundary cooperation between Ukraine and Poland in the agrarian sector is an objective process with the condition of integration of the economy into the world economy. Inter-regional relations and foreign economic activity are developing, joint ventures, holdings, unions are being created. This tendency is inherent to the countries which have common borders and are geographical neighbours, such as Ukraine and Poland in particular.

We consider the perspective directions of cooperation between Ukraine and Poland in the agrarian sector in formation of a coherent agrarian policy, the Common Agricultural Market, creation of a free trade area in the border regions, establishment of joint investment programs; improvement of the investment climate through preferential taxation of agricultural production; development of mechanisms for joint support of innovative activity of agricultural enterprises, farms, individual farms by regional authorities and local self-government bodies, etc.

 As a result of this study, the main directions of Ukrainian and Polish cooperation and formation of relations between the two states in the field of agriculture in the border territories have been established. The problems of transboundary cooperation between Ukraine and Poland in the agrarian sector have been elucidated. They are presented in the form of barriers that hinder to active cooperation of the mentioned countries. The areas of transboundary cooperation between Ukraine and Poland in the agrarian sector have been proposed.

The cooperation between Ukraine and Poland in the agrarian sector will contribute to the economic development of both countries.
