On August 24, 1991 the Verkhovna Rada declared the formation of the Independent Ukrainian State and on December 1991, a nation-wide referendum confirmed the formation of a new large European state.
As to its territory Ukraine is the second largest country in Europe. As to its industrial potential, this is one of the most developed republics of the former Soviet Union with highly developed metallurgy, machine-building, chemical production and agriculture.
The economy of the Soviet Union was functioning for decades as an aggregate national economic system linked by united management, co-operated links1
and applied technologies. This has predetermined the inherited dependence2
of Ukraine on economic ties with former republics of the former Soviet Union. It will suffice to point out that 2/3 of the country’s gross domestic product3
did not have a closed productive cycle4
Clearly the emergence5
of political and economic borders in a formerly united economy, the emergence of the national monetary-credit and financial systems6
, breaking of the system of traditional economic links have brought the economy of the country to a crisis. Almost all the indices of the economic development have negative dynamics. But the rates of decrease of production are slown down7
and first signs of stabilization appear in a number of branches of economy.
One of the main reasons of inflation are prices for power carriers8
imported from Russia. These prices have increased by hundreds times during the last years. The government of Ukraine sees the way out of the crisis in realization of the programme of economic reforms which would make it possible to reorganize the economy, to change its structure, to carry out9
privatization and to restore stimuli to a highly effective work.COMMENTS

Two interrelated processes are characteristic of Ukraine’s economy today, namely its assertion1
as that of an independent state, and its transformation from planned-centralized to market-controlled. These processes are rather complicated, but there are all prerequisites2
for their effective accomplishment.
Present-day independent Ukraine has a considerable potential to quickly develop its economy — and this is explained not only by the favourable natural conditions, but also by the convenient geographical position in terms of3
international trade exchanges.
Reforms, started in the national economy after the proclamation of independence, are aimed at the establishment of an open, effective market type economy.
The main directions of the programme of economic reforms are as follows:
1. The programme of structural reorganization.
2. Attainment of balanced payments account.
3. Creation of conditions for gradual integration of Ukraine with the world economy.
These and other problems must be solved at the cost of a wide attraction of foreign investments. In a short period of time the Verkhovna Rada and government of Ukraine have succeeded in creation a legislative and regulating basis for conducting economic reforms. Taxation and budget systems4
corresponding in their structure to the world practice are created essentially anew. The change over to a free price formation in the economy is carried out. The government regulation of price level is applied only in establishing prices for main energy carriers, some most important food, communal and transportation services.
Much attention is given to the change of the structure of property. Legislative basis is created for privatization of state-owned enterprises5
, implementation of reforms of the banking and financial systems. COMMENTS

Industry is the most important area of Ukraine’s economy. In the current structure of Ukraine’s industry a great proportion is occupied by heavy industry, especially the steel, machine-building and coal industries.
A considerable part is played by the food and light industries. About two-fifth of Ukraine’s people work in industry, and about a fifth work in agriculture. Most other Ukrainians have jobs in such service industries as education and health care.
Many of Ukraine’s heavy industries are concentrated in the Donbas region, the centre of Ukraine’s heavy industry. It has rich mineral deposits and major industrial base with bias towards1
heavy industry. A large industrial output2 is yielded3
by the mining, ferrous metallurgy4
, chemical and machine-building industries.
The machine-building is presently the largest branch of industry. It accounts for a third of the national industrial output and employs about a fourth of Ukraine’s workers. Automobiles and buses, locomotives and railway cars, airplanes and ships, tractors and harvesters5
, machine tools6
and metallurgical equipment are produced at Ukraine’s plants and factories.
However, today’s industries are unable to satisfy the consumers’ wants7
. The reason is that they are not integrated into the world process of economic, technological and scientific progress. The national industries have low standard in processing raw materials8
, outdated and worn-out production equipment9
, unwillingness to accept progressive techniques and approaches and lack of innovating initiative. These and other problems must be solved in the course of new economic reforms aimed at creating a market economy. COMMENTS

Ukraine has very favourable conditions for the development of agricultural production: fertile soils, temperately warm climate, a well- developed industry processing agricultural raw materials. Ukraine is one of the world’s most productive farming regions and is known as the breadbasket of Europe.
There are two main branches of agricultural production in Ukraine: crop production1
and animal husbandry2
Crop production is the practice of growing and harvesting crops. It includes: grain and industrial crops3
, meadow culture, fruit and vegetable raising. Almost half of the cropping area is occupied by cereals4
such as winter wheat, maize and legumes, rye, oats and barley. Among the industrial crops such as sugar beet, sunflower, flax the leading position is occupied by sugar beet. Close to 40 types of vegetable crops are grown in Ukraine: potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, red beets, carrots, onions, garlic, etc. Melon-growing is practised mainly in the south.
Animal husbandry is the practice of breeding of farm animals and their use. The most widespread branches of animal husbandry are: dairy and beef cattle breeding5
, pig raising6
, sheep farming7
The poultry industry9
is spread through all the provinces. Birds farmed include chicken, duck, goose, turkey. There are large mechanized poultry farms to produce eggs and meat.
Most farms in Ukraine are owned and controlled by the government. They include state farms10
and collective farms11
State farms are managed entirely by the government, which pays wages to farmworkers. Collective farms are owned and managed in part by the workers, who receive wages as well as a share in the farm’s profits. State farms are larger and have more mechanical farm equipment than collective farms. In order to increase crop yields and animal products collective and state farms apply widely intensive technologies. COMMENTS
