Abstract. The Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) Agreement between Ukraine and the EU has led to the following question: What new opportunities are unveiled for the agricultural sector? The aim of this article is to determine the promising trends in Ukrainian agriculture’s export potential considering the potential adverse effects from highly competitive markets. The authors’ gravity model is based on the research of the Ukraine–EU free trade area operating conditions. The paper provides a forecast on the volumes of trade flows of agricultural food products between the participants of the Agreement and determines advantages and disadvantages of trade and overall economic relationship liberalization. Finally, the ways to improve bilateral relations for Ukraine are proposed.
