Abstract

The possibilities of agricultural policy development within the EU-Ukraine DCFTA framework are analyzed. It is proved that the imbalance between its external and internal approaches aggravates the local producer’s risks to loss their competitive position in the domestic market. It is concluded that during the implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU, agricultural policy must shift the focus on opening new export markets, promoting SMEs` export, modernizing internal agrofood market institutions, supporting farmers and providing rural development.
