A number of research activities have been carried out to substantiate the content of the module. Thus, the implementation of the project resulted in identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the Ukrainian economy related to deepening trade with the EU. In particular, it has been found that agricultural enterprises and agro-industrial enterprises have a significant potential of competitiveness on EU markets; while, machine-building and engineering enterprises are among the weakest, and often are not competitive with the EU manufacturing enterprises.
