Poland, policies for growth with equity

Front Cover
World Bank, 1994 - Business & Economics - 126 pages
The dissolution of the Soviet Union and the breakdown of all previously established production and trading practices has forced Ukraine to confront the demands imposed by a market-based economy. The food and agriculture sector is still in the early stages of the transition toward private ownership and market- based decisionmaking. The adjustment is difficult because of the country's long history of distorted prices, government intervention, and monopolistic marketing and because of the built-in inefficiencies of the collective and state farm systems. This report describes the current status of the food and agriculture system and the continuing process of transformation. It also provides an agenda and recommendations for maintaining the reform process. The main chapters highlight the development of a market framework and competitive strategies, land reform and privatization, and ways of improving farm production and efficiency. Also available in Ukrainian: (ISBN 0-8213-3475-1) Stock No. 13475.
