Abstract: Despite the fact that many problems of further development of agriculture and rural areas are systemic in nature, there is no a long-term strategy for agricultural and rural development. Research results show that in recent years significant results have been achieved in the production of certain types of products, increasing the country's food security, increasing exports of grain, oilseeds, poultry and pig meat, and a number of other goods. However, growth in agriculture was accompanied by serious structural imbalances: in the development of sub-sectors, various categories of farms, differentiation in terms of the level and efficiency of production both in the country regions and individual agricultural producers, and the social situation in the countryside intensified. There remains a set of problems related to the availability of food for low-income groups, the need to increase the profitability of the main part of medium-sized small agricultural producers, the development of domestic technological and resource base, the improvement of living conditions in rural areas and several others. The proposals for improving agricultural policy are based on the need to balance the interests of consumers and producers of agricultural products and foodstuffs, as well as to ensure consistency between the tasks facing the agro-industrial complex to achieve food security of the country, increasing the export potential of domestic agricultural products, sustainable rural development and state programs. measures, as well as allocated for the development financial resources.
