Personalities: The prevailing global trend in trade policy is liberalization of the world trade. Since the start of its integration into the system of world trade, Ukraine has been liberalizing its trade regimes. The Sector’s researchers have assessed the effect of the liberalization of trade regimes during the period of Ukraine's membership in the WTO and the potential impact of further liberalization of trade regimes in the FTA on the structure of Ukraine’s domestic market and some markets of individual commodities. They have justified various scenarios of the development of Ukraine’s trade relations with the countries of MS within the EurAsEC and CIS FTA and evaluated possible losses in Ukraine’s trade balance of the country in these scenarios.
Developed the guidelines of state protectionist policy to accelerate structural changes in the domestic commodity production. Based on the conducted research on the conditions of the EU agro-food markets, trading conditions and problems in the trade between Ukraine and EU, several proposals have been prepared as to the development of trade with the EU in agri-food products. A characteristic tendency of the world trade is raising non-tariff barriers, especially by developed countries. In this context, the researchers have defined various theoretical and methodological approaches to the analysis of the impact of non-tariff barriers in international trade and identified the most significant non-tariff barriers in Ukraine’s foreign trade.

Research: 1. Justification of the guidelines for the development of Ukraine’s domestic market.
2. Evaluation of the current and potential impact of the creation of new regional trading unions on external commodity markets and Ukraine’s domestic market.
3. Recommendations for the expansion of trade with the EU under the FTA between the EU and Ukraine.
4. Directions for the diversification of Ukraine’s energy policy under the intensification of integration processes and structural changes in world trade.
