Associations of local self-governance bodies could play a significant importance in protection of interests of territorial societies. In order to solve the issue of attraction of the population to participation in local self-governance, it is necessary to establish a feedback between the society and its self-governance bodies – both elected by citizens and its executive structures.

The proposed approach to building a system to diagnose problems of socio-economic development of regions suggests that diagnostic system must be formed on two levels: rapid diagnosis, the purpose of which is to identify the problems of development, and fundamental diagnosis, the purpose of which is to determine the causes of problems and threats to social and economic development of the region, taking into account industry-specific regions and enterprises engaged in economic activity in the region, and other characteristics of the region. Timing of the diagnosis should be coordinated with the time needed to make decisions, especially operational management. It is shown that the most appropriate instrumental methods for rapid diagnosis methods are short-term forecasting, signal approach, leading indicators; within the fundamental diagnostics – structurally logical analysis, correlation and regression analysis, VAR-models and simulation.

Determining the Requirements for the Formation of an Administrative and Territorial Unit of the Basic Level in Ukraine (p. 76 - 80)

One of the main problems that the modern study of regional economies examines, is the search of ways of leveling the uneven socio-economic development of territories and overcoming signs of their doldrums. As practice shows, a significant obstacle to overcome uneven development of areas is the presence of distortions of administrative-territorial structure of Ukraine, which, in turn, requires scientific methods of reform. The purpose of this paper is to study the requirements of the formation of a territorial unit of the basic level – bulk, which is the basis for effective local self-government and territorial organization of power. The study substantiates the necessity of taking into account a wide range of criteria for the formation of bulk, allowing them to group on grounds such as population; powers of local self-government; proportionality of the administrative-territorial and socio-economic development of the territories; the possibility of formation of viable communities. Given these requirements will allow to reasonably determine the approaches to the implementation of administrative-territorial reform in order to create sustainable socio-economic development of the territories.

Evaluation of Scenarios of the Socio-Economic Development of the Kharkiv Region Based on Simulation Model (p. 87 - 98)

In the article results of research aimed at building a simulation model of the development scenarios of the Kharkiv region with evaluation of the designed model are presented. The simulation model consists of the following units: economy, population, budget, environment, innovation, foreign economic activity and has been implemented by means of the simulation modeling system Vensim 6.1. On the basis of the model, with purpose of evaluating the potential areas of development, the following groups have been designed and analyzed: base, investment, innovation and investment scenarios. The results of the base scenario analysis showed that while the trends of the last 10-12 years will continue to persist, paces of economic growth of the Kharkiv region will be slowed down, although the positive developments would occur in almost all economic activities. The scenario modeling of the socio-economic development of the Kharkov region revealed that in most of the criteria the group of investment scenarios is dominated by a group of innovation and investment scenarios, the best situation shows the innovative investment scenario in the machine-building industry. It was also determined that in any case of implementation of one scenario the foreign direct investment should be facilitated concerning the development of industrial production, not the financial activities. It is proved that the costs of innovations will contribute to improvement of development not only in the elaboration and development of the new technologies, but also of the new innovative products.

Cluster Approach to the Study of Inflation Processes at the Regional Level (p. 103 - 108)

The relevance of topics related to the analysis of inflation processes at the regional level is growing, considering that regionalization is a tendency of the world development. The objective of this article is to identify the feasibility of a study of inflation processes at the regional level by means of cluster analysis with a view to the further implementation of the obtained results in the formation of ways to overcome the excessive inflation in Ukraine. At the first stage of cluster analysis three groups of indexes are to be studied: index of industrial production; volume index of gross regional product; consumer price index, which are the most widely used indicator of inflation in the regional context. As result of the conducted analysis of indexes of 25 objects there are nine clusters, among which four are isolated cases, that means unique to certain indexes, and five clusters, which bring together from three to seven areas. The results, obtained in the course of cluster analysis, show as subclusters with minor differences, so the clusters with significant heterogeneity in the middle of the group. Consideration of the «local peculiarities» of the checked indexes will help to transform antiinflationary tools and enhance the effect on implementation of the local measures.

Components of the Regional Socio-Ecological-Economic System in the Context of Sustainable Development (p. 109 - 113)

The article is aimed to identify the main components of the regional socio-ecological-economic system (SEES) and chances of their interaction in the context of sustainable development, thus sustainable development of a socio-ecological-economic system is seen as stability of each of the subsystems and the system as a whole, and in a broad sense is meant the dynamic functioning of the entire system, including all kinds of stability. To ensure the transition towards permanent environmental-oriented development, particular attention should be paid to the formation of the major concepts and mechanisms of the SEES, because in this system the characteristics of the natural, social and economic conditions of the region are determined. While influencing the state of the natural environment through the own activities, exploiting the natural-resource potential of a territory, the society determines the level of health, provision of the necessary foods, depopulation of the citizens i.e. all that, what forms the level of society's living in that territory. In turn, the living standard of the population largely determines the environmental situation. The possibility of SEES functioning at the regional level should be based on: identification of specific characteristics of regions; determination of level of development of the productive forces and production relations; determination of compliance with the existing legal basis for the implementation of sustainable development in the region.

As the methodological basis of the research served the theory of «core – periphery», in the framework of which influence of size of both the industrial market and migration on the income level of the population by regions of Ukraine has been analyzed. Results of the study suggest to substantiate the thesis of the «New economic geography» as to positive relationship between the factors set out above, thus proving the presence of regional divergence of socio-economic development in Ukraine. However, results of the empirical analysis cannot be considered definitive, they are intended to actualize the further studies of interregional differentiation in socio-economic development in our country. Diversity of perception of the «New economic geography» within the scientific field determines the need for further analysis of interregional differentiation in Ukraine that can be directed to the study of the influence of agglomeration effect at the level of income level of the population, prices, and employment in the regional context, as well as the study on concentration of incomes of the population in the capital of Ukraine.

The article analyzes the existing methodical approaches to establishment of the system of monitoring the socio-economic development of regions in Ukraine and in the countries of the world. Methodology of monitoring is widely used in the systems of statistics of socio-economic trends in almost all countries of the world. In Ukraine, complex calculations according to the analyzed methods currently are not carried out and are not used on the official level, the new guidelines are neither elaborated or implemented. Then, there is none of the information components of modern efficient public management in terms of integrated assessment of socio-economic development in Ukraine as whole and in its regions. At the present stage of development of Ukraine, priority decisions are required for decentralization of power, modernization of regional policies and the empowerment of local authorities for the development of territories. To make effective managerial decisions on the efficient implementation of these tasks is essential to develop improved methodological approaches for monitoring and evaluation of socio-economic development of regions, using objective and adequate system of indicators that would ensure the accuracy of the estimate, take into account trends and enable prognostics of regional development.

Improving the Processes of Managing the Development Persistence of the Regional Economy by Using Neuro-Fuzzy Technology (p. 67 - 76)

The article is aimed to study the processes of managing the development persistence of the regional economy by using neuro-fuzzy technology. In the article the relevance of applying theoretical models and technologies of neural networks is substantiated, which make possible to consider the processes of managing the development persistence of the regional economy in conditions as close as possible to current realities. A model for evaluating the effectiveness of management of development persistence of the regional economy was built, including the definition of levels of efficiency of the economic-financial, social and environmental components of persistence according to the formed estimation scale, whose structure helps to carry out a detailed analysis of «contribution» from each of the indicators, characterized through the individual components in the resulting indicator of effectiveness of managing the development persistence of the regional economy. Implementation of the model for evaluating the effectiveness of management of development persistence of the regional economy provides for valid choosing strategic areas of socio-economic development of the region, which will result in the specific development indicators. It has been determined that effectiveness of managing the development persistence of economy management of the Ukrainian regions for 2009-2013 basically meets the level of insufficient persistence with values close to an acceptable level that threatens to deepen the crisis processes in the regions and may cause undesirable effects associated with increased social tensions in society.

Conceptual Scheme for Analysis of Spatio-Temporal and Structural Effects of Regional Financial Policy (p. 71 - 77)

One of the major problems in development of the national economy is strengthening the imbalances in development of regions. This leads to the increasing threat of disintegration of the national economy, social tensions, emergence of crises. A direction of solving this problem is to develop new conceptual approaches to substantiation of territorial development policies. The article considers the conceptual scheme for analysis of spatio-temporal and structural effects of financial regional policy, which is represented as a complex of interconnected modules. To accomplish the tasks of each module we use the method of evaluation of structural dynamics, cointegration analysis, models for error compensation, the methods of spatial econometrics, methods of multivariate analysis, scenario approach, simulation, the method of system dynamics, production functions based on panel data. Implementation of the proposed approach in activities of the regional systems will provide for assessing the balance of economic growth, the stability of economic system, its response to «shocks», to explore the effects of interregional interaction, estimate the effects of financial regional policies, select the projects, to which the mixed forms of financing can be applied.

Therefore, one of the priority reforms in Ukraine today is the reform aimed at decentralization of power, which provides for the establishment of an effective system of organization and management of socio-economic development at the local level. The main challenging issues are: annual growth of the gap between the regions-leaders and other regions of the country, causing rise of social tensions, absent points of economic growth in most parts of the country, unconformity of the system of administrative-territorial division of the country with the EU standards. One of the main directions in curing interregional differentiation and overcoming the problems of regional development in Ukraine is modernization of the system of administrative-territorial organization and local self-government bodies. Special attention should be given to consideration of the issue of establishment and functioning of a self-sufficient community, which is defined as the base level in the system of local self-government.

The Theoretical Foundations of Evaluation of the Dynamic Efficiency of the Regional Socio-Economic Systems (p. 56 - 62)

The article is aimed at determining the applicability of the dynamic standard theory to evaluate the dynamic efficiency of the regional socio-economic systems (RSES). The theoretical and methodical issues of evaluating the dynamic efficiency of the RSES were considered. It is suggested that the theory of «dynamic standard» be taken as a basis. This approach implies a comparison of the existing conditions of system with a particular mode of the reference functioning of economic system. It has been determined that such an evaluation is easy to interpret, allows for compressing a large amount of information on the results achieved, and for a comparative analysis. So, we suggest that the RSES development standard be set on the basis of the indicators dynamics. Considering the dynamics allows distinguishing one development option from another, a certain step from the next or previous one. Constructiveness of this approach to the systemic evaluation of the dynamics of economic systems is determined by the fact that the proposed formal apparatus is based on the principles of dynamic compatibility and dynamic subordination of indicators. These principles can be implemented in most possible cases, as the pace characteristics of the economic dynamics are the inconsistent compared values (the characteristics of economies that are not comparable in statics become comparable in dynamics).

The Decentralization – First Steps of Development and Old Problems (p. 85 - 90)

The article is aimed at developing proposals to find ways to improve the material and financial bases of the United territorial communities. The process of decentralization of power, which is going on currently, means transferring the authorities of the State to the local level. Today we can acknowledge both the successful steps of this reform and the fact that old problems are persistent in the United territorial communities. To the problems of such kind belong the virtual lack of agricultural land in communities and the payment of salaries informally, which significantly reduces the taxation base, necessary for development of the community’s financial resources. The first of the above issues needs to be addressed through institutional and legal measures, and the second – through a system of incentives for the creation of official jobs. The community leaders may not only assist into creating new jobs in the agricultural sector, but also take an active part in the creation of agrarian cooperatives, making use of communal resources. These measures will provide an opportunity to increase financial resources and encourage the communities’ autonomy.

The Problems of Ensuring the Harmonization of Economic Interests in Region (p. 87 - 92)

The publication identifies the problems of harmonizing economic interests at the regional level. The necessity of research on interests of economic entities of regional level is specified, because contradictory interests of tiered subjects of economic system are manifested through their economic relations. It was clarified that regional policies to ensure sustainable development of the region should be based on economic, social and environmental policies. The approaches to definition of the nature of economic interest are allocated. The authors have reasoned that the main feature of functioning of the regional level is its own, specific system of economic interests connected with presence of many entities of economic activity on territory of the region: enterprises of local, regional, and of the State subordination, various institutions, and private enterprises. It is concluded that regional confrontations of economic interests, unfortunately, are very poorly amenable to regulatory actions by the State and regional authorities. Harmonization of economic interests in the region should be based on a combination of joint efforts by the State, business and society to find directions to eliminate contradictions for a balanced socio-economic development.

The Corporate Activities in the Context of the Development of Regional Integration Associations (p. 44 - 50)

The article is aimed at defining the level of interrelationship between corporations and regional integration associations. An interaction of interests of international corporations and regional integration associations is determined. In particular, competitive advantages of regional integration organizations and the interests of international corporations in the course of development of integration associations are allocated. It is proved that cooperation within the framework of an integration association opens up additional opportunities for corporations to increase access to necessary productive resources, and this, in turn, is one of the most important motives for deployment of transnationalization. Distribution of the largest corporations by sector of economy is carried out depending on the indices of market capitalization. The research used the indicators of flows of both inbound and outbound investments for the period of 1970–2016 from four regional integration associations – NAFTA, EU, ASEAN, LAS. On the basis of calculations the values of indices of dynamics of input and output foreign direct investments have been determined, which have shown, that modern corporations act as immediate bearers of two key tendencies of internationalization of world economic activities. It has been proved that corporations have become not only key actors in the world market, but also define basic trends in the international trade in goods and services, international capital movements, and play a key role in the creation, development, and dissemination of innovations.

The article is aimed at deepening the theoretical and methodological aspects of the budget policy of regions and substantiating the directions of its improvement in the context of reform of financial decentralization in Ukraine. A theoretical generalization is carried out, a new vision of budget policy of development of the regions of Ukraine is suggested, and the scientifically-practical recommendations as to its implementation in conditions of deepening of the financial decentralization reform are grounded. It is proved that the theory of regional self-development is the basic theoretical postulate according to which it is expedient to form the concept of the budget policy of development of region. The criteria of development of region are defined as follows: self-sufficiency, self-organization and self-government. The necessity of taking into view the influence of financial decentralization on the development of regions is substantiated, which leads to increasing the importance of budget policy in ensuring the regional development. It is shown that the most negative manifestation of financial decentralization is deepening of imbalances of the socio-economic development of regions and the horizontal budget competition between regions. The proposed conception defines strategic priorities for the implementation of the budget policy for the development of Ukrainian regions, and specifies the list of tasks required to achieve them. As a result of the carried out research, the authors proposed a number of measures that could intensify the regional development budget policy.

Scientific Support and Practice of Reshaping Districts of a Region (p. 73 - 79)

New tasks of the regional strategy in terms of enlargement of districts in regional territories are considered. The concept of the changes is based on the need to remove the contradiction that has arisen in connection with the creation of united territorial communities (UNCs), when the functions of the united communities and district state administrations coincide and are duplicated. Indicators to characterize the situation, some axiomatic provisions, and a new model for ensuring the development of enlarged districts are proposed. The role of suburbanization as a strategic function of the development of territories is determined, and it is proved that suburbanization has an opposite effect on the development of cities and urban-type settlements. It is shown that the main problematic issue of the process of enlarging districts is to determine the proportions and balance between state influence on the regions and the limits of self-government.

Evaluation of Economic Impact of Universities on Regional Development (p. 80 - 85)

The impact of a university on regional subsystems: political, demographic, economic, infrastructural, cultural one is highlighted. It is established that the existing foreign models evaluate the direct, indirect and induced impact of universities on regional economic development. The most popular methodology for studying economic impact of universities on the regional economy is the ACE methodology. It is proved that its use in Ukraine meets certain difficulties due to the lack of statistical data. Statistical data in Ukraine do not allow for evaluating the indirect economic impact of university expenditures and calculating the corresponding multiplicative effect. Domestic approaches to evaluating the impact of universities on economic development are analyzed. The impact of universities in the UK and Ukraine on regional economic development is compared. Using the example of National University of Water and Environmental Engineering, the impact of the university on the economy of the Rivne region is analyzed. The ways for adapting world experience to domestic realities are proposed.

The Instrumentarium to Explore Approaches to the Economic Security of Regions (p. 83 - 88)

The article is aimed at improving the theoretical approaches and substantiating the methodical instrumentarium for ensuring the economic security of regions. In view of the existing scientific heritage, the author’s own approach to defining essence of the definition of «economic security of region» is presented, which is proposed to be considered from the perspective of: 1) status and competitiveness of the region’s economy; 2) safe and independent operation; 3) protection of the regional economy from destabilizing factors; 4) ability to provide the region’s reproductive processes; 5) adaptability of the economy, its capability to function effectively under the influence of destabilizing factors and threats. As a result of the study, the methodical instrumentarium for evaluating the level of economic security of regions is substantiated, based on the indicator approach with selection of a number of indicators in terms of its main components: financial, production, innovation-investment, demographic, social. It is noted that the proposed indicators can have a stimulating, disstimulating and neutral effect on the economic security of regions. The level of regional security should be differentiated in the range of the following criteria: optimally permissible, limitable, dangerous, dangerously-critical. Prospect for further research in this direction is a substantiation of an algorithm and possible approaches to defining the level of regional security based on methods of the cluster analysis, instrumentarium economic and mathematical forecasting, composing of ratings.

The Value Approach to Restructuring the Administrative and Territorial Organization in Ukraine (p. 89 - 94)

The publication contains conceptual provisions about the role of value orientations and rethinking them in the new conditions of reforms on the decentralization of power. The regional values of Kharkiv region, which make up the potential of the regional territory, as well as the reasons for the growing interest of scholars and executives in the topic of «values», in particular those that characterize the relationship between the government and society, are defined. Within the value approach, the author allocates the «attitude to the territory» on the part of power structures, plus understanding of the «special status» of territories. A new direction of the value approach has been defined in the process of reforms on decentralization of power and development of local self-government. It is indicated that success of the reforms is not less related to the quality of human resources than to the availability of financial capital. The article allocates the components of development potential in conjunction with the basic and the new values, and proves that the fate of reforms depends on a successful solution to the objective problem – the existing imbalance of relationships between the power structures and the communities. The value approach is used for a new model of zoning of territories, as well as for indicating the attitudes towards the institutional innovations.

Assessing the Status of Economic Security of Regions (p. 71 - 78)

The article analyzes the status of economic security of regions of Ukraine in 2012-2017, using the developed methodical approach of integral assessment. Its application will allow the most complete consideration of the impact of negative factors on the economic security of region; to diagnose its condition on the basis of the formed set of indicators, corresponding to the allocated functional components (meso-economic, investment-innovation, foreign economic, financial, social, demographic); to compare the calculated indicators with threshold values; to comprehensively assess the level of economic security of region as a whole and according to individual components; to define the intervals of the status of economic security of region (satisfactory, unsatisfactory, critical, or totally unsatisfactory). On the basis of a comparative analysis of the trends in the development of the researched regions, it is concluded that their economic security is unsatisfactory and that the most economic security indicators are significantly deviated from their thresholds. Positive trends still are of unsustainable nature and mainly relate to the financial component, which is evidence of the first positive results of the implementation of fiscal decentralization reform.

The Natural Resource Potential and Opportunities to Mobilize Resources for the Development of Industrial Clusters and Smart-Specialization of the Luhansk Region (p. 79 - 85)

The article is aimed at reviewing the natural resource potential and the opportunity of mobilizing resources for the development of industrial clusters and smart-specialization of the Luhansk region. The article shows that the development of regions in the conditions of post-conflict transformation is possible through the formation of a comprehensive organizational and economic support of the system of regional governance along with the development of effective mechanisms for use of natural resource potential, as well as the search for opportunities to mobilize resources for the development of industrial clusters. The tendency to self-organize enterprises of regions as opposed to the centralized processes of formation of industrial complexes and establishment of the State cluster policy in Ukraine is defined. It is determined that as a result of the military conflict in eastern Ukraine there was a sharp deterioration in the socio-economic situation, which significantly changed the situation in all spheres of public life and caused the need to restructure the economy and the system of management of the region. It is defined that the most attractive spheres of economic activity in the territory of Luhansk, controlled by Ukraine, may in the near future be forestry, agriculture, recreation and tourism, and the chemical industry. It is determined that it is possible to create conditions for Ukraine’s economic and industrial development, to strengthen the competitive advantages of certain regions and to increase the economic viability of local communities on the basis of a combination of modern cluster policy, strategies of reasonable specialization together with decentralization policy.

The Compensation Mechanism as an Instrument for Harmonizing Interests in the «Region – Enterprise» Relationships for the Sustainable Development of Region (p. 85 - 90)

The publication is concerned with the issues of correspondence between the interests of enterprises and the regional government entities, as well as the search for compromises arising on the distribution of resources and empowerments in the «region – enterprise» relationships. The article is aimed at defining the appropriate types of compensation mechanisms that can act as a result of the search for compromise and an instrument for harmonizing interests in the «region – enterprise» relationships in favor of a sustainable development of region. The factors, influencing the readiness and willingness of the entities of regional development to compromise, are presented, and it is defined that the search for compromise plays a role in solving the problem of organizational imbalance. To address this problem, an analysis of possible correspondence of resources of performers (enterprise or region) and their empowerments is carried out, the results of which allow to determination of the equilibrium/dominance options between enterprises and region in the implementation of projects. Depending on the status of the equilibrium/dominance, the type of project distribution and the type of compensatory mechanism needed to address the problem of project redistribution depending on the status of the equilibrium/dominance is defined. Upon this basis, it can be argued that the elaboration of a technology of finding a sustainable equilibrium status between enterprise and the parties interested in a sustainable development of region takes further steps.

The Strategic Development of Territories Based on Overcoming the Regional Asymmetries (p. 101 - 107)

Modern processes of reforming the relationships between the «center» and the «region» as well as the need to create self-sufficient territorial communities require deep researches with the scientifically sound approaches to the formation of regional policy along with Ukraine’s development strategy on the basis of creating legal and financial preconditions for self-government, which is the purpose of this article. The main reasons for the increase in asymmetry in the regional development are defined, one of the reasons which are highlighted is that regions with diversely structured economy adapt to the new economic conditions differently. It is shown that interregional differences are a reflection of the increasing differentiation between the economic (differences in ownership and sectors of the economy) and the social (different groups of the population) constituents. An analysis of the development of Ukraine’s regions is carried out in terms of GDP, the level of competitiveness in industrial production, the innovation activity of the real sector, the human resources, and operation of the labor market. It is indicated that the main task of reforming the regional development of the State should be the creation of regional democracy as a system that efficiently and consistently enables the State with a complex regional structure, territorial communities with different cultural and linguistic compositions to live in harmony and economic well-being. Particular attention should be focused on: providing conditions for the regional economic and budgetary self-sufficiency; creating the conditions for inflows of investment to restructure regional economies; creating a new communal utilities system involving both regional and local government bodies; reforming the fiscal-budgetary and tax system in accordance with the needs of regions; developing plans and strategies for the development of individual territories; settling the rules and regulations of the land market; a clear definition of the role and place of local authorities in the management of public property.

Preconditions for Gaps in the Personnel Provision for Regional Development (p. 117 - 122)

The article examines one of the pressing problems of management theory, related to the definition of the concept of «personnel gaps». Influenced by the process of decentralization in Ukraine, the problem of personnel provision of regions has become widespread popularity. In regional development, human resources play an important role in the development of the territory as a whole, not individual enterprises. That is why the article is concerned with exploring the human resources as a key factor in the development of regions in Ukraine and other countries of the world - in order to identify and further on prevent the prerequisites for occurrence of personnel gaps. The current tendencies of personnel reproduction in the developed world countries are analyzed. The factors of reduction in human resources in Ukraine compared to other world countries are considered in particular detail, which is subsequently reflected in the personnel gaps. At the same time, the idea of rather positive influence of development of the latest technologies on personnel resources is defended, provided that there is a full-fledged market relations. After analyzing the experience of developed countries in the introduction of basic unconditional income, it was found that these activities were aimed at improving the morale of human resources rather than motivating them to find decent work. The introduction of basic unconditional income in Ukraine at the moment is impossible because of the threat of loss of business sentiment among citizens, as well as the lack of free sources of raising funds. Identifying and systematizing personnel gaps allows us to focus on the problems that stand in the way of regional development in the country. Prospect for further research in this direction is to define measures to prevent personnel gaps based on the solution of this global problem already studied and analyzed by foreign experience.

Directions of Institutional Provision for Administration of the Economic Development of Regions (p. 83 - 88)

The article defines directions and develops a system of institutional provision for the economic development of regions. It is determined that in order to ensure an efficient economic development of a region and to overcome existing imbalances are necessary: the State regulation; legitimacy; regional initiative and regional implementation; specific targeted nature of the measures being developed; systematic approach, taking into account all types and methods of the State provision for a particular region; responsibility and control; focus on the program-targeted methods of solving problems in the context of transformational public relations. It is specified that the task of the State policy at the regional level is a weighted governance related to both the direct administration of regional processes and the implementation of regulatory impact, with the determination of boundaries and selection of softer methods to intrude in a certain area of functioning of the territory. In this context, the first priority is to uphold the principle of subsidiarity, implement government regulation through the adoption and implementation of legislative acts, and stimulate regional development through the State financing provided that internal resources are used with as much as possible expediency. It is noted that the system of institutional provision for economic development of regions (EDR) provides for the comprehensive development of all regions of the country, optimization of the deployment of productive forces across the country, and the leveling of conditions of economic management and human living. The existence of an institutionally developed regional economic system will accelerate the growth of the country’s economy. It is concluded that presence of problems in the economic development of region requires an improvement of the State policy in the sphere of regional development, its respective legal, organizational, economic mechanisms on the basis of institutional provision that will enable a long-term strategy for regional economic development.

Regional Features of the Development of Freight Transport Markets (p. 125 - 131)

The article is aimed at exploring the features of development of regional transport markets. Based on the carried out analysis, the approach to the distribution of regions of Ukraine by the level of development of these markets was considered. The main methods of analysis were the statistical method, the methods of cluster analysis of k-averages and the Ward method. As a result of the study, it was substantiated that the indicator, which provides an opportunity to allocate certain groups by the level of development, is the freight turnover of transport enterprises in the regions. On the basis of this, three groups of regions of Ukraine were allocated in terms of the level of development of regional freight transport markets: regions with consistently high levels of freight transport turnover; regions with consistently average levels; regions with consistently low levels. It is defined that the stable growth of freight turnover over a long period is a feature of regions with a high level of development of regional transport markets. For the regions that are part of the group with a stable average level of development, the feature is a stable dynamics of development without significant changes over a long period. A feature of the development of regional freight transport markets in the group of regions with consistently low levels is the dynamics of freight turnover, which is characterized by the absence of significant changes throughout the researched period. Prospect for further research in this direction is to predict the development of freight transport markets, taking into account the characteristics of each group of regions, which will constitute the basis for the further formation of long-term market development strategies as part of the regional program of transport infrastructure development.

Analyzing the Principles of Strategic Planning with the Introduction of Elements of Smart Technologies in the Process of Management of the Local Territorial Development in Ukraine (p. 132 - 139)

Strategic planning for the development of territories in Ukraine becomes relevant in the process of ongoing decentralization reform. United territorial communities, which can include cities of different sizes and opportunities (from cities of regional or district status to small cities), have received expanded powers and today have the opportunity to use existing and additional resources (natural, infrastructure, social, labor, financial, innovation, investment, information, science and technology) to increase local budget revenues, get better opportunities of influence on their development and create conditions for increasing the well-being of the population. Successful are the territories, which thanks to well-designed strategies develop existing opportunities, support and improve internal living conditions, successfully use external factors, which affects the flow of investment and further effective development using technological innovations. Modern strategic planning further on remains a way to solve a large number of complex and acute local problems of life support of community, create conditions and opportunities for development, improve competitiveness, introduce smart technologies in the process of managing territorial development. Analysis of existing strategic approaches to the management of territorial development provides a possibility to explore the principles of organizing the elaboration and implementation of development strategies of the territories, in particular smart cities, in Ukraine. Use of modern strategic planning mechanisms for almost all spheres of territorial development, based on the benefits of technological advances and new IT technologies, allows the identification and use of smart elements, in primarily for the efficient local development in Ukraine.

Analyzing the Problems of Rural Territories Development in the Context of Implementation of the Reform of Decentralization of Power in Ukraine (p. 140 - 147)

Exploring the rural development issues, given their direct impact on the administrative, territorial and socio-economic indicators of the development of communities, regions and the country as a whole, is becoming more and more relevant in the course of implementation of provisions of the reform of local government and the territorial organization of power in Ukraine. Rural territories provide a significant contribution to the economy, cause influence on the national food security, form an essential part of the country’s export potential. Newly created communities, especially in rural areas, have inherited a significant number of local problems, including poor economic development, inadequate quality of infrastructure, lack of free access to modern public services in almost all vital social spheres (education, health, transport, communications, finance, etc.). Existing problems of self-fulfillment and decent labor remuneration, first of all in the productive sphere, cause the outflow of the economically active population, especially young people, in search of work and better living conditions, characterize the high level of the current unemployment and the continuing ageing of the rural population, which as a result exacerbates social and economic problems in society. Finding ways to address local development problems, introducing an efficient system of integrated development of rural territories and achieving functional self-sufficiency in newly created communities, taking into account the benefits of the expanded powers granted in the the course of implementing the decentralization reform, require researching the new approaches to the public management of territorial development and the formation of a socio-economic basis upon their own available resources and the internal potential for achieving the sustainable economic growth, stimulating their development, and improving the socio-economic indicators of the living standards of citizens.

The Tourism and Recreational Potential as an Element of the Territorial Competitiveness (p. 148 - 154)

The article clarifies and discloses the essence of the conceptual apparatus of the tourism and recreational potential as an element of the competitiveness of territories. The problems of disclosure of the theoretic-methodological basis of the tourism and recreational potential, its functions and role in society as a source of innovatics in tourism have been actualized; the categories of «potential», «tourism», «recreation», «tourism and recreational potential», «tourism and recreational potential of territory» are defined. It is noted that digitalization, innovation, greater accessibility and societal change will continue to shape this sector, and companies will need to adapt to remain competitive while at the same time the tourism and recreational potential will be conceived as a means of achieving the goals of sustainable development and tourism attractiveness of territories. It is noted that the basis for the development of tourism and recreational functions, of course, is the tourism potential, which can be described as the most important determining factor in the development of tourism and increasing the competitiveness of territories. The tourism potential determines the possibilities of creating new tourism products. The carried out analysis of the component structure of the tourism and recreational potential will contribute to studying and developing the resource capital of the potentially attractive and competitive territories, thus influencing their investment and investment reputational status. It is concluded that the tourism and recreational potential is a rather capacious concept, which contains numerous determinants that define the tourism and recreational attractiveness of a certain territory. In view of the favorable conditions for tourism activities and significant profits for the needs of socio-economic development, most of the territory of Ukraine is successfully trying to develop the markets of tourism services, entering into a competition for the tourist flows.

The Theoretical Aspects of Formation and Use of the Potential of Industrial Enterprises of Region (p. 154 - 160)

It is noted that regional industrial complexes are in poor condition nowadays and require the renewal and modernization of fixed assets, efficient use of all available production resources and integrated use of the production and management potential of the enterprises. The main approaches to formation of the potential of industrial enterprise are considered and allocated, which are related to its functional structure and ensuring the creation and organization of a system of resources and capabilities that would enable to achieve a variety of the enterprise’s goals as a result of their interaction. Approaches that are unambiguous in the allocation of resource and target aspects in determination of potential, depending on historical stages in management, are considered. However, other factors in the interpretation of the potential of industrial enterprise must also be taken into account today. The mentioned approaches, from the management point of view, allow to disclose the instrumentarium of ensuring the efficiency of development of the regional economic systems of more qualitative basis. Despite the diversity of interpretations, common features are allocated, which is represented by the most of approaches. It is noted that the allocated factors and conditions for building and further implementation of the potential of industrial enterprises of region differ in their impact on the potential of business entities. It is concluded that, taking into account the conditions of the external environment, as well as the influence of its respective factors, on the potential of the enterprise, it is possible not only to predict possible fluctuations of separate (functional) potential opportunities, but also to develop and implement the necessary measures to adjust this influence on operating systems in order to achieve the intended goal.

Researching the Conditions of Development of the Transport Industry in the Regions of Ukraine (p. 160 - 165)

It is noted that transport is one of the basic types of activities of the national economy of the country. Transport creates conditions for the successful balanced and proportional development of the regional economy. But today the level of transport system and transport provision as a factor in the functioning of regional economies and the system of their transport-economic relations are not in their best condition and require changes in the organization of management both in the sphere of transport activities, and in renewal of fixed assets. An analysis of the proportion of Ukraine’s regions in terms of transport services has been carried out. It is defined that during 2014-2018 among the regions of Ukraine, the largest proportion in the volume of transport services was occupied by the city of Kyiv (on average 122,2%, there is a clear upward trend: from 21,9% in 2014 to 23,0% in 2018) and Odesa region (on average 12,7%, the indicator increased: 11,0% in 2014 to 13,2% in 2018). The smallest proportions in the volumes of transport services among the regions of Ukraine were occupied by Chernivtsi region (on average 0,76%) and Zhytomyr region (on average 1,2%). It is noted that the transport system is an essential component of the integration of global economy. Taking account of Ukraine’s very good geographical location and potentials, there is a need to improve infrastructure, implement existing transport strategies and introduce new ones, as well as enhance competitiveness in international markets. As a result of the research of the conditions of development of the transport industry in the regions of Ukraine, it was concluded that significant attention should be paid to the introduction of business stimuli of NTP, measures to improve competitiveness and at the same time reduce the self-cost of the provided services.

Addressing Disproportions in the Region as a Basis for Development of Entrepreneurial Activity (p. 142 - 148)

The article explores the manifestations of asymmetry as a reflection of the existing disproportions of socio-economic development of the country and the region. It is proved that existing forms of disproportions (asymmetries) have both the objective and the subjective nature of manifestation, as well as an appropriate influence on the asymmetry of spatial development. The factors of comprehensive influence that cause deepening of interregional asymmetries in the current conditions are researched. It is emphasized that the formation of socio-economic policy at the territorial level should be carried out on the basis of a differentiated approach in accordance with the status and conditions of functioning of region, the peculiarities of implementation of entrepreneurial activity. Existing approaches to the detection of disproportions (asymmetries) are analyzed, which differ in the systems of the indicators used and the methodology of defining interregional and intersectoral deformations of regional development. It is determined that the ratio between the maximum and the minimum values of the socio-economic indicators of the region’s development helps to define the level of regional socio-economic disproportions. To research asymmetric processes in the regions, it is proposed to use relative indicators that are more substantial, deeper and more significative, as well as more fully reflect the underlying signs of differentiation, taking into account the results of entrepreneurial activity. It is specified that financial alignment is needed to smooth the development asymmetry. It is necessary to align the financial capabilities of territories, starting from the economic, social, environmental and demographic status of the corresponding region, the activity of entrepreneurial activity entities on the basis of setting real standards of their budgetary provision.

Influence of Integration Processes on the Structural Modernization of Regional Economic Systems (p. 115 - 124)

The article is aimed at determining the peculiarities of processes of structural modernization of regional economic systems under the influence of integration processes, allowing to form an own vision of its efficient organization. The basis of the carried out study was the dialectical method of cognition. To achieve this aim, a number of general scientific methods were used: monographic method in the analysis of existing scientific thought; method of analysis and synthesis – for the purposes of expounding the author’s own vision as to the essence of integration processes; induction and deduction – when expounding elements of the process of structural modernization and others. Regional economic systems have become the object of the study; their structural modernization under the influence of integration processes have become the subject of research. In the course of the study, by generalizing the existing groundworks and experience of the development of Ukraine’s regions, against the background of established levels of integration processes, the author’s own vision as to the essence of regional structural policy is formulated, which is defined as a system of measures aimed at allocating its most efficient components, their support and stimulation, as well as optimizing other components, while its aim is to increase the overall level of development of the regional economic system. Having defined the main directions of Ukraine’s integration in the global economic community and their possible influence on the structural modernization of regional economic systems, it is possible to formulate the main tasks of structural policy and determine its role and place in the policy of the State’s development. Further on, the basic principles of structural modernization of regional economic systems and conceptual bases for implementation are formulated. As a result, priority areas of structural modernization of regional economic systems in the context of integration processes and their specific prospective characteristics are defined. The main scientific novelty of the study is a combination of systemic and programmatic approaches to formulating the conceptual bases of structural modernization of regional economic systems from the perspective of integration processes. The practical significance of the obtained results lies in the fact that they are formulated from the point of view of Ukraine’s real integration into the EU and can be used in formulating the programs of reforming the structure of the economic systems of regions.

The Cross-Cutting Analysis of Measures to Improve the Competitiveness of Innovation and Investment Activities (p. 134 - 140)

The article is aimed at analyzing regional development strategies and projects and their implementation activities for the western regions of Ukraine. As the Strategy is the basis of elaborated and promising regional economic and social development programs, taking into account the opportunities and needs of the regions themselves, it is becoming the only source of measures to improve competitiveness. The innovation and investment direction of the region development is partially covered in the second part of the Strategy, which focuses on stimulating the development of small and medium-sized businesses in the region, the tourism sector of the region; attracting external and internal investment; increase in the activity of innovative consumption in all sectors of the economy, but this is insufficient level of support for innovation and investment activities, mainly experiencing an indirect influence. According to the analysis, the orientation of projects and measures aimed at innovation and investment activities in the region is characterized, allocating their advantages and disadvantages for the western regions. All measures of innovative and investment development of the region’s economy are grouped by the following directions: industry direction; vitalization of innovation and investment activities; consumption of the results of innovation and investment activities, allowing to allocate all directions of development of this sphere at the regional level. This system of recommendations provides a clear example of whether the presence or absence of a comprehensive vision of the implementation of the policy of innovation and investment regional activities, which, in turn, is one of the locomotives in the progressive development of the national economy. The recommendations can be used by management entities to optimize competitive advantage in the tactical and strategic periods.

Regularities of Development of the Property Taxation System in Ukraine in the Context of Increasing the Financial Capacity of Territorial Communities (p. 129 - 135)

The article is aimed at determining the regularities of use of the budget potential of the united territorial communities (UTOs) based on the income from the collection of property taxes. The author’s own scientific approach is developed to analyze the efficiency of use of the budget potential of territorial communities based on the income from property taxes. The main problem of collecting property taxes in Ukraine is substantiated, which is the low share of income from collection of these taxes. However, in today’s conditions it rises especially acutely, which is connected with the strengthening of the financial capacity of local government in the conditions of decentralization processes in our country. It is determined that the level of efficiency in the use of the budget potential of territorial communities based on property taxes is generally quite low. The author allocates the main problems in the context of property tax collection: inefficient definition of tax rates and tax-exempt persons; differences in the application of the tax in different territories; non-accounting of the financial situation of property owners when taxing. It is determined that for the real estate tax, which is different from the land tax, as well as for land fees, there is an intrinsic problem of the efficiency of setting tax rates by local governments, on which the volume of tax revenues to the local budget, the number of taxpayers and the efficiency of the tax in general depend. Existence of different approaches to setting a real estate tax in the UTO with different income levels per person is proved: lack of interest of the high-income UTOs in increasing the proceeds of the real estate tax is also leading to the local government bodies’ leveling of the possibility to efficiently set taxation rules and increase the tax revenues. Increased efficiency in the use of the budget potential of territorial communities based on property taxes is identified. This demonstrates the understanding of the local government bodies of the benefits of using these taxes to improve the financial capacity of territorial communities.

Analyzing the Socio-Economic Development of Regions in Conditions of Instability (p. 136 - 144)

The article is aimed at analyzing the socio-economic development of regions taking into account the factors of the unstable macro-economic environment. Monitoring and analysis of indicators of socio-economic development in such conditions is extremely important: it allows to determine the possibility of implementing a national strategy of regional development in the conditions of economic, socio-political instability and tension in the society, increased dynamism of indicators. Upon the directions of the research, key indicators of social and economic instability by the regions of Ukraine are defined. Indicators of social instability include income and expenditure of the population, average monthly wages, levels of unemployment and employment, infrastructure of education and health facilities. Indicators of economic instability include the number of economic entities by type of economic activity, structural statistics on economic entities, the total amount of expenditures by the directions of innovation activities of industrial enterprises. The carried out analysis of the proposed groups of indicators in the regional context showed that there are significant disparities in the development of Ukraine’s regions and the influence of instability factors on this development. Based on the system of indicators, a design of the study of socio-economic development at both the national and regional levels is formed, which will allow timely identification of existing disparities. Taking in account the determined aspects of regional development unevenness, it is suggested that the need for greater use of the opportunities of the State and society to mitigate the disparities of socio-economic development be emphasized. To this end, an analysis of the possibility of implementation of a national strategy of regional development in an unstable environment is carried out.

The Shadow Component of the Transport Services Market of Ukraine: Scale and Impact on the Economy of Regions (p. 145 - 153)

The article analyzes the factors of shadowing and the essence of illegal operations in the transport services market. The rates of shadowing of the type of economic activity «Transport, warehouse, postage and courier activities» for the regions of Ukraine in 2013 and 2018 are defined. A tendency towards reducing the shadow sector of the transport services sphere in the majority of regions is identified. The highest level of shadowing of the transport services market regarding the gross value added in 2018 was observed in the Luhansk region and in the city of Kyiv, and the lowest – in the Ivano-Frankivsk region. The results of the regression analysis of the panel data of the indicators of socio-economic development and activities of transport services in the regions of Ukraine for the period 2013-2018 confirmed a direct link between the share of small businesses in the total number of enterprises and the level of shadowing of the transport services market, which indicates the attractiveness of such activities in terms of generating illegal income. A direct link between the consumer price index and the level of shadowing of transport services is identified, due to the increase in the unaccounted-for money supply, which falls into the legal sector of the economy, and the increase in prices as a result of the under-profiting of services. The direct impact of the increase in the share of profitable enterprises on the consumer price index confirms the participation of such enterprises in the formation of the shadow transport services market due to the concealment of some part of the revenues. The positive influence of capital investment in the transport services sector on inflationary processes is reflected in the reduction in the consumer price index while improving the investment efficiency.

Analyzing the Seasonality and Variability of Tourist Flows on the Example of the Western Regions of Ukraine (p. 154 - 160)

The article is aimed at studying the evaluation of the irregular distribution of tourist flow and its variability during a year, as well as the division of territories within the country with different seasonality. In the analysis of seasonality in the tourism sector, it is proposed to calculate the index of seasonality of the number of tourists from summer to winter and from autumn to spring, which, respectively, allows to determine the coefficient of variation during the year. It is substantiated that the irregular tourist route is well visible in some regions, where the number of tourists in summer is 3–4 times higher than in winter, and the number of overnight stays is even 5–7 times higher. It is determined that in 2016–2018 in most regions was observed a negative, significant or statistically very significant tendency in the seasonality index of the number of tourists. Taking into account the values of seasonality indices for the number of both domestic and foreign tourists; number of days spent overnight, as well as the variation in the number of tourists per year, in the western regions of Ukraine are allocated four zones with different seasonality of tourist flow: very high (Carpathian zone); high (mountain zone), low (Zakarpattia); middle (Prykarpattia). It is concluded that in the temperate geographical latitudes of Europe, including Ukraine, the seasonality of the tourist movement is a natural phenomenon, mainly due to the variability of weather during the year, which can affect the management of human resources in tourism, profitability of the tourism economy, as well as the demand and supply of services.

Management of Investment Support for the Development of Tourism and Hotel Business Enterprises at the Regional Level (p. 161 - 168)

The article explores the problematics of investing in the tourism industry at the regional level. The need and relevance of the research is determined by the insufficient development of theoretical and methodological aspects of the activation of investment processes, especially in the sphere of investment projects at the sectoral level. The article is aimed at researching methodical and practical approaches to the investment support for the region’s tourism industry, as well as developing directions for its activation. The need to form a new investment model in light of the modernization of Ukraine’s economy is proved. The basic conceptual principles of investing in tourism are developed: systemacity, alternativeness, investment culture, complexity, adaptability, and accounting for risk. Methodological principles of stimulating the investment provision of the tourism industry are proposed and a number of factors is defined, which have both a stimulating and a disstimulating effect on the investment attractiveness of tourism and hotel sphere. On the base of the research results, successive stages of the economic approach to activation of investment resources in the region are allocated and the instrumentarium to increase the efficiency of investment in tourism and hospitality is defined. Investment monitoring is the main instrument of investment controlling, namely: providing the information-methodological support for coordination and assistance to the investment planning systems, monitoring of implementation of investment activity and its information transparency. Upon the results of the research is determined that the introduction into practice of regional and industry management of investment monitoring will help to improve the efficiency of investment processes in tourism and hotel business, which will allow to activate the development of the specified industries at the regional and national levels.

The Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Evaluating the Level of Demographic Security of Regions (p. 93 - 100)

The article is aimed at improving the theoretical and methodical approaches to evaluating the level of demographic security of regions. On the basis of a review of existing scientific developments, the authors’ own approach to formulating the essence of the concept of «demographic security of region» is proposed, which is defined as a state of protection against threats and dangers, with ensuring the formation and maintenance of positive dynamics of both quantitative and qualitative parameters in the reproductive processes of the population of territory, their optimal balance, stability toward depopulation, and sustainable development. The authors have developed a methodical instrumentarium to evaluate the level of demographic security of regions, which is based on the most significant indicators, characterizing the presence, processes of reproduction, population movement, as well as allowing to identify major threats, dangers and fully estimate the status of the demographic situation of territory. On the basis of the points evaluation method and calculation of an integrated indicator, regions have been grouped by the critically low, low, medium, high and highest levels of demographic security. The region-leaders include the city of Kyiv - with the highest and Volyn, Chernivitsi, Rivne, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Odesa, Zakarpattya regions - with a high level of demographic security. Chernihiv, Cherkasy, Sumy, Kirovohrad, Zaporizhzhya, Poltava regions are defined as outsider regions with the low level of security. The main threats to the demographic security of most regions of Ukraine remain high mortality rates, reduction of natural and migration population growth, exacerbation of depopulation processes. Prospects for further research in this direction are to substantiate the mutual relationship of demographic security with other components of the regional public system based on the use of the instrumentarium of cluster, factor analysis and economic and the economic-mathematical modeling tools.

The Human Development of Ukraine’s Rural Population: The Regional Plane (p. 100 - 108)

The article explores the theoretical and methodological aspects of measuring the level of human development of the rural population. The peculiarities of its calculation for analyzing the standard of living of the rural population are defined. On the basis of systematization of scientific sources, generalization of theoretic and methodical developments on the analysis and assessment of the level of human development, a methodological approach to measuring the level of human development of the rural population in the regional plane is proposed. In accordance with this approach, an integral index of regional human development of the rural population is developed as a general indicator of human development of the villagers. The integrated index is calculated as an average value of five generalizing indices reflecting the most important aspects of human life: demographic development, labor market, property status, social environment, and living conditions. According to the proposed approach, the level of human development of the rural population of Ukraine during 2014-2017 is assessed in the regional plane. Concerning the integrated index of human development, all regions are grouped into four groups: regions with high, medium, low and very low levels of development. Leaders and outsiders among the regions of Ukraine in terms of living standards of rural residents are identified. Among the leaders in the calculated integral index of human development are Poltava, Mykolayiv and Chernihiv regions. The low level of human development is recorded for Donetsk, Ternopil and Ivano-Frankisvsk regions. The results of the research show the total low standard of living of the Ukrainian peasantry and the unevenness of its human development in the context of regions. This necessitates the development and substantiation of managerial decisions regarding effective measures aimed at eliminating the identified imbalances of human development for each region of Ukraine.

The Territorial Organization for Innovative Development (p. 109 - 115)

The article is concerned with the research of scientific issues related to the acceleration of innovative development of the spatial economy, determining the degree of influence of innovations on the nature of the territorial organization of economic activity, providing a theoretical substantiation for the formation of innovation growth zones of individual territories (regions). The main objective is to define the features and contradictions of the current status of the system of territorial organization of innovation activity and to accelerate on this basis the pace of socio-economic development of a certain territory. The systematized literary sources on the topic of the research show that modern economic scientific thought does not pay enough attention to the study of the nature and influence of the innovation component, in its broad understanding, on the pace and quality of both the system of territorial organization and the dynamics of innovation development. This explains the undeniable relevance of the topic. The problem of the spread of innovation diffusion is researched in terms of the representation and positioning of an individual territory (region) as a subject of economic relations, as a multi-functional and multi-faceted economic system, and not as a place of only concentration of means of production and labor. Further development, symbiosis of the theory of regionalism, in particular the spatial organization of production, with the theory and practice of innovative entrepreneurship is the substantiation of the feasibility of creating and spreading the territorial poles of innovative growth. It is proved that an efficient innovation policy in a certain economic field of activity should be based on the functional properties of the forms of spatial organization of production, on the one hand, and the deployment of productive forces on the other. The idea of the nature and character of the existing forms of modern territorial organization of innovation activity is studied and further developed, which is a kind of network structure, which is a projection of production networks into a certain territory, or the so-called «networks tied to a place». The economic strength of such a territory is set not by the volume of material production, but by the mobilization resource of the entire network, its overall impact on the global market. Also the theory of clustering as one of the modern forms of innovation activity in a certain territory has acquired further development.

Administration of Critical Technologies in AIC at Regional Level as a Foresight Tool (p. 93 - 99)

The Foresight technology is considered in world practice as an effective forecasting instrument, intended to research the future, or to prognose the future development of economic activities. Most of the authors consider the use of Foresight at national and global levels – through the theoretical or methodological aspects. Much less considered is the practice of applying Foresight at the regional level. Lack of experience on the practical application is one of the problems in increasing the competitiveness of regions in the prevailing conditions. The article considers the results of use of the method of critical technologies of Foresight concerning agricultural sector at the regional level. A region is regarded as a subject of competitive processes in the context of globalization. The purpose of the research is to determine the critical technology in AIC at the regional level, capable to implement in the final phase of the Foresight application to influence the industry production, markets, environment and, ultimately, competitiveness of the industry in the region. Outlining the scope of usage of Foresight, the authors consider the following key issues of the industry, which are: agri-ecological condition of the land; social issues – creation of workplaces in rural areas, provision of food production for the population, according to the medical norms and at affordable prices. The results of the research have found that the technology of keeping the dairy herd pasture-fed can become a critical technology, a potential factor in the revival of cattle breeding in the region. The presented approach will solve the problem of conservation of soil fertility as key competencies in development of the agri-industrial complex in the region, necessary for obtaining high yields of agricultural crops, and also allow to solve social problems with jobs creation, provision of the population with food products, according to the medical standards, and will impact the development of dairy products market.

Analyzing the Recreational Resources of Kharkiv Region (p. 112 - 117)

The article analyzes the recreational resources of Kharkiv region. It is noted that its recreational resources due to the territory, geographical position, presence of a combination of natural, anthropogenic, technical, socio-economic complexes should be effectively used for tourism development in order to develop and restore the spiritual and physical forces of a person, to help increase both labor efficiency and the level of satisfaction with life. A detailed analysis of all types of natural recreation resources shows the possibility of development of thematic tourist areas by the districts of Kharkiv region. 70% of the natural reserve fund of Kharkiv region consists of different-profile wildlife preserves: botanical, entomological, hydrological, ornithological, forest, general zoological, hunting – of both local and national significance. It is noted that in the Kharkiv region there is a significant recreational potential, which is not limited by objects that have received the official status of national or regional importance, but still can lead to interest from potential users of tourist services. Analyzing the recreational resources of Kharkiv region leads to the conclusions, that in the region are fully present all types of natural and cultural-historical recreational resources for development of all types of tourism. There are favorable geographical conditions for creation of thematic tourist areas and directions by the districts of Kharkiv region. Registering, elaborating programs for preservation and development by the State institutions of different levels of wildlife preserves, protected nature areas, historical monuments, architecture, monumental art, etc. provide for their existence, but lack of financing inhibits the restoration, along with creation of appropriate infrastructure. Therefore, for the development of tourism in the region it is necessary to attract investments from enterprises and individuals.

The Theoretical and Applied Foundations for Assessing the Status of Economic Security of Regional Road Transport Complexes (p. 75 - 83)

The article is aimed at studying the current status of road transport complexes of regions in terms of formation of an effective system of their economic security. The current status of road transport complexes of regions is analyzed; tendencies in the development of freight and passenger transportation in the regional context are identified. Two main problematic directions of development of road transport in Ukraine are allocated: 1) status and compliance with the European road infrastructure standards; 2) updating rolling stock as a base for development of automotive services and improving their quality. The approach to the assessment of the status of economic security, based on the allocation of two functional components of road transport complexes is substantiated, which will allow to comprehensively assess the status of economic security and direct the actions of regional authorities to overcome exactly the direction at which the most critical indicators for the status of economic security can be observed. The indicators that provide an opportunity to evaluate the level of economic security according to production and infrastructure components are proposed. The assessment of the status of economic security of regional road transport complexes in 2018 was conducted. As a result of the study is identified that only two regions of Ukraine currently have sufficient level of economic security – Dnipropetrovsk and Zakarpattya regions. At the same time, while displaying a poor condition of infrastructure component Dnipropetrovsk region has sufficient level according to the production component, Zakarpattya region is characterized by sufficient indicators on both components. The status of economic security of road transport complexes in other regions in 2018 was medium or low. Prospects for further research in this direction are the development of approaches to forecasting the status of economic security and development on the basis of the obtained results of effective measures to counteract threats arising in the process of operation.

Some Aspects of the Regulation of the Tourism Industry in the Region (p. 83 - 87)

Tourism is an important segment of the enrichment of the State and regions, having mainly a multiplier effect on all other industries and spheres of activity. A sign of the developed countries of Europe and the world remains the high level of visiting and recognition by international visitors of attractions and cultural and recreational spectacles. Unfortunately, Ukrainian industry is at the stage of its insufficient recognition. The purpose of the article is to study important aspects of the regulation of the tourism industry in the region. The article considers the tourism industry of the country as one that requires reformatting of regulatory processes at different levels of its own functioning, monitors the main legal documents that ensure the activities of national and regional tourism markets, states their imperfections in relation to modern international tourism flows, suggests certain aspects on their improvement. Given the imperfection of the legal framework, the regulatory processes in the Law of Ukraine "On Tourism" should be improved, in our opinion, in particular in the part where the Law artificially creates conditions for the monopoly of the tourism industry and excessive intervention of the State in tourism. The functional responsibilities of regulatory institutions at different levels are specified, the synergistic effect as a result of their interaction and consolidation is proved. The practice of foreign countries regarding the formation of so-called regional tourist corporations, which synthesize different types of tourism, coordinate information support of tourism services, form a competitive pricing, is considered. These countries are grouped by the efficiency of regulatory processes in the tourism market by three models. A number of directions for improving the regulatory processes of tourism markets are proposed.

The article is concerned with generalization of modern practice of development of regional development strategies in Ukraine and substantiation of the advantages of implementing a problem-oriented approach to the process of strategizing the socio-economic development of regions of Ukraine. The methodological principles of implementation of problem-oriented approach in the process of strategizing the socio-economic development of regions of Ukraine for identification of problems and problematic situations of regional development and determination of strategic and operational goals on this basis are researched. The results of the study showed that the regions of Ukraine regulate socio-economic development using the regional development strategies; as of 2020, all regions of Ukraine have developed strategies for socio-economic development for the period up to 2027. Analysis of these documents showed that the process of identifying the problems of socio-economic and ecological development of region requires improvement, since there is currently no clear identification of problems in the existent strategies. Despite the lack of a clear list of regional development problems, all strategies contain a system of strategic and operational goals, but not all regions specify the indicators of their achievement. Also, not all of the analyzed regional development strategies contain substantiation for defining goals based on the analysis of the problems of socio-economic and ecological development of region. Prospect for further research is to improve the methodological principles of identification of problems of socio-economic and ecological development and implement them into the practice of developing regional strategies.

Determination of Coastal Territories as an Object of Implementation of the State Regional Policy in Ukraine (p. 99 - 106)

The formation of a new State regional policy in Ukraine on the basis of a combination of both the sectoral and the territorial approach requires comprehension of the functional direction of territories. The key point at that is a typologyzation of the territories of Ukraine on a functional basis, their delineation and concretization for the purposes of the State policy. The article is aimed at specifying and proposing the definition of coastal territories for the purposes of the State policy of regional development on the basis of an analysis of the achievements by domestic scholars, as well as the current legislation of both the European Union and Ukraine. The analysis, carried out by the author, showed that the current legal framework of Ukraine does not regulate all types of territories to which the State policy of regional development is directed. Such territories, in particular, include coastal territories. In the course of research, the methodology of typologyzation of coastal territories in the European Union is disclosed; an analysis of the segregating coastal territories by domestic scientists is carried out; a critical review of Ukrainian legislation on the interpretation of the concepts related to coastal territories is accomplished. The definitions of «coastal territories» and «coastal territorial community» are substantiated and suggested for the purposes of the State policy of regional development of Ukraine, taking into account the changes introduced by the decentralization reform.

The Informational-Analytical Principles of Budgeting Management in Amalgamated Hromadas (p. 107 - 116)

In connection with the processes of decentralization, the issues related to the formation of amalgamated hromadas (AHs) are gaining more and more attention. A big advantage in the creation of AHs is the transfer of significant powers from the State authorities on budgets to the local self-government. It is proved that the software in the sphere of management accounting and budgeting should include methodologies of implementation of the subsystems of both the budget and the process management, as well as means for projecting regulations of the financial management system. The authors propose the necessary minimum requirements for the software of the budgeting process, which display that due to a powerful and flexible system of formation of analytical reports, there is a significant improvement in the organization of work on the implementation and analysis of the budget. The list and characterization of the software available on the Ukrainian market are presented, which justify that the automation of budgeting through the introduction of an integrated information system is possible and depends only on the understanding of the importance and necessity of this process by the leadership of AH. The process of developing managerial decisions has a number of analytical procedures: analysis of the incoming information used for managerial decision-making; analysis of alternative solutions regarding the options; analysis of the progress of implementation of decision and analysis of deviations of the results obtained from the planned ones. Analytical activity is an integral attribute of the entire management process. According to the results of the research, one can conclude that the increase in the number of managerial tasks facing the leadership of hromada at the same time forms the preconditions for the creation of an informational-analytical system, the data of which will be able to satisfy any requests – both external and internal. Providing the necessary information at the right time on the basis of management accounting and analysis is the essence of the organization of information service of budgeting and management processes, contributes to the achievement of the goals outlined in the strategy for development of hromada.

Formation of Regional Development Strategy in Ukraine (p. 111 - 117)

The subject of the research is theoretical foundations and practical aspects of the State-based regional development in Ukraine, which is influenced by the process of decentralization. The article describes the status and characteristic tendencies of unification of regions of Ukraine. The problems of «duplication» of administrative functions of subjects of the State-based regional policy, as well as establishment of interaction of the State bodies with local self-government are considered. Negative results from delegation of powers to local public authorities and transfer of financial resources to city budgets are disclosed. The article researches reasons for the imbalance of regions and its consequences according to different indicators, as well as the mechanism of the State-based regulation of balanced development of regions. It is determined that the regional development strategy should solve the real problems of the functioning of amalgamated hromadas and effectively implement decentralization processes. The place of information policy in the system of making effective managerial decisions is defined. The authors substantiate the objective need to form a more practical strategy and its possible impact on the development of local units and the country in general. The instruments of public administration in the process of abuse of power at the regional level are examined. A number of top-priority problems are specified, which should be solved in the process of implementation of the decentralization reform. In particular, the issue of «local oligarchy», abuse and corruption in the context of decentralization of budgets are considered. According to the results of the research, promising directions for improving the regional development strategy for the effective functioning of the capacity of territorial hromadas for the purpose of social and economic development of society are defined.

The Determinants of Economic Growth of Regions in the Newest Economic Theories (p. 118 - 127)

None of the existing theories of economic growth of regions has by now offered any opportunity for a complete solution to the problems. New realities of our time require new scientific approaches to substantiating the economic growth of regions, searching for determinants, leverages, principles. The article is aimed at theoretical-methodological substantiation for the economic growth of regions in modern conditions, defining the main determinants and principles of growth. Based on the analysis of the newest theories of economic growth of regions, it is stated that the main determinants of economic growth of regions in today’s conditions are a person with its human capital; the innovations that provide a breakthrough; informatization of all social and economic processes of society. A change in the emphasis of human capital has been made: if in the past attention has been focused on its educational component, then in modern conditions, knowledge, talent, creativity come to the fore. The emphasis in innovation development is the need for symbiosis of innovations and competitive advantages of territories. The peculiarity of the development of regions in modern conditions is their orientation to internal factors and the mechanisms of economic development, because economic growth is generated within the system. There was also a shift of emphasis from a stable development of regions to inclusive, which, in addition to the ecological component, takes into account the need to involve all members of society into solving problems of all territories. The determinants, goals, principles and levers of economic growth of regions are allocated in terms of the newest economic theories.

A Classification of Regions of Ukraine by the Level of Formation of Social Tensions (p. 128 - 136)

A classification of regions of Ukraine by the level of formation of social tensions together with determination of preventive measures aimed at preventing the creation of crisis situations are carried out. It is proved that the socio-economic situation typical for Ukraine has deteriorated significantly. This is evidenced by the decline of a large number of international indicators that characterize the stability of the country’s development. The suggested in the article methodological approach to the classification of regions by the level of formation of social tensions includes two main stages: substantiation of the system of socio-economic indicators that characterize the level of social tension; selection and substantiation of models of classification of regions. The carried out analysis of the values of socio-economic indicators of each cluster allowed to allocate the following classes of regions by the level of formation of social tension: 1st class – increased level of formation of social tensions; 2nd class – low level of formation of social tensions; 3rd class – high level of formation of social tensions. Of particular importance for the research is the 3rd class, i.e., the class with a high level of formation of social tensions, which leads to a crisis. The regions of this class should have serious government support in the social sphere. The results of the research showed that the number of regions classified with high level of social tensions is constantly growing and, unfortunately, the number of regions where the social sphere is more developed is decreasing. It should be noted that this situation is extremely dangerous, because it can lead not only to social, but also economic and political crises. The carried out analysis of the status of region of each of the received classes provides the possibility to prevent aggravation of crises in the social sphere and determine the list of preventive measures that can lead to a decrease in losses both in terms of individual classes and in the State as a whole.

Formation of Scientific Grounds for Identification and Structuring of Problems of the Region Development (p. 89 - 95)

The relevance of the article is justified by the increasing role of scientific provision for identification and structuring of regional development problems in the evolvement of directions of the State regional policy, as well as in the formation of strategies and programs of socio-economic development of regions of Ukraine. The article is aimed at substantiating the methodical approach to identification and structuring of problems of the region development. The analysis of the interpretation of the essence of concepts of «problematic region» and «depressed region» is carried out. It is defined that the concept of «problematic region» is wider, despite the fact that there is no such definition in the legislation of Ukraine. It is proved that in order to identify and structure the problems of regional development, it is advisable to apply the methodical approach developed by the author, which contains four consecutive stages, the implementation of which will allow to carry out a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the peculiarities of the regional development of Ukraine and identify the accompanying problems. Both the identification and structuring of problems along with determination of regional development goals is carried out in the measurements of «Natural-territorial and socio-economic potential», «Socio-economic and ecological efficiency», «Quality of life of the population». As for the above defined measurements of problem research and determination of regional development goals, it is proposed to apply the indicative indicators calculated using an additive method of convolution of their partial indicators and components. Prospect for further research is to improve the methodological provision of the goal-setting of development of regions of Ukraine.

Global Trends in Public Management of Territorial Development in the Context of Decentralization of Power (p. 96 - 103)

The progressive development of each country is the result of an effective management system at all levels of economic administration. Of particular importance is regional (territorial) development, due to the growing role of public regional management, the formation of local self-government, the influence of public organization of power on the socio-economic development of territories. In the context of activation of processes of decentralization of power, public management, transfer into the regions of certain powers to local authorities and increased responsibility for their activities significantly expands the socio-economic status of certain territories (regions, communities), the issues of development and stimulation, availability of effective mechanisms and instruments for socio-economic development of region (territories, communities, etc.) are becoming relevant. The existence of regional development problems in Ukraine with clear signs of increasing disparities of socio-economic indicators, increasing the number of problematic and backward territories, exacerbation of interregional socio-political tensions necessitates studying the world experience of functioning and development of territorial socio-economic systems and opportunities for the use of best practices for the formation of their own regional policy on the basis of effective management of territorial development in the conditions of decentralization of power. Changes in the legislation of Ukraine in terms of decentralization of power should concern the consolidation of the constitutional basis of local self-government, determination of its system and functioning with further detailed legislative regulation. This, on the one hand, will ensure the constitutional guarantee of local self-government, on the other hand – will provide a legal framework for its further development and improvement.

The Normative-Legal Provision of Public Management of Territorial Development of the Issues of Formation, Functioning and Development of Amalgamated Hromadas in Conditions of Decentralization of Power (p. 103 - 108)

In modern world, the relevance of researching new approaches to the formation and functioning of economically capable territories in order to overcome significant problems in both the rural and the urban territorial communities and ensure their sustainable development under the influence of exacerbation of endogenous and exogenous risks is significantly increasing. Obviously, the current crisis situation of the territorial communities of the country, especially rural areas, cannot satisfy the interests and needs of citizens, communities and enterprises of all forms of ownership, as well as does not contribute to providing residents of the territories with jobs and modern public services. In addition, the search for new strategic approaches to the management of the development of territories aimed at reducing the differentiation of the level of socio-economic development of regions (territories, communities, etc) is actively carried out by equalization of conditions of economic activity, rational use of their production and resource potential, achievement of sustainable economic growth, increase of socio-economic indicators of living standards of citizens of Ukraine. The significance of the formation of the necessary legal framework for the functioning of a separate administrative-territorial system (region, territory, community, etc), assessment of its condition for further use in public administration of territorial development determines the importance of developing and implementing an effective system of regulatory documents to solve socio-economic problems and stimulate sustainable regional development in Ukraine, in particular territorial communities.

The Current Principles of Regional Development Management and Regional Policy Formation (p. 128 - 133)

The article is concerned with the current principles of regional development management and formation of regional policy. The key aspects and mechanisms of regional governance such as public administration and regionalistics are examined. The directions of research in the sphere of regional development management are provided. The main stages and components that provide for the implementation of the State policy of regional development are considered. Based on both Ukrainian and European regional development strategies, the following key principles of regional development management and regional policy formation are allocated: regional development based on the principles of sustainability; regional development based on the principles of circular economy; regional development based on the principles of typologization of regions; regional development based on the principles of investment policy. Each of these principles is considered separately in terms of the importance of application in the formation of regional development policy. During the analysis, it was noted that the topical issues in the formation of regional development strategies on the basis of sustainability were and remain the issues of assessment of the achieved results, which are distilled down to the development of a single conception and determination of the relevant goals of the group of indicators on which this conception should be based. It also emphasized the need to develop certain measures for the implementation of circular business models, development of transition strategy and policy of both the State-controlled and regional support. It is specified that in order to effectively develop territories in the management of regional development and formation of regional policy, it is necessary to take into account the specifics of each region, and therefore to perform a preliminary typologization. When considering regional investments in the formation of a regional development strategy, it is emphasized that in the formation of an effective investment policy at the regional level, the application of the approach based on the typologization of regions both in terms of development in general and in terms of investment development in particular becomes an important aspect. The general conception of regional development management and regional policy formation has been formed. The author emphasizes the conformity of such a conception to modern conditions for the development of Ukrainian regions.

The Main Trends of Globalization and Urbanization and Taking into Account their Impact in the Process of Managing the Development of Regions of Ukraine (p. 133 - 141)

The article is aimed at determining trends in urbanization and globalization to take into account their influence in the process of managing the development of regions of Ukraine. It is defined that the level of urbanization in Ukraine over the past 30 years is high, while the regions of the country are significantly differentiated by the level of urbanization. The most urbanized are Donetsk, Luhansk, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia regions. The only region of Ukraine where the level of urbanization is being reduced is Zakarpattya region. Three regions of Ukraine - Ternopil, Chernihiv and Khmelnytsky are characterized by the most intensive urbanization processes, where the growth of urbanization is now almost ten times higher than the national average over the past 30 years. The research identified the main urbanization challenges, in particular: deepening the economic gap between cities and villages and between large cities and cities of region significance; economic development of the region determines the ability to unite and concentrate the creative capital; increase in inequality and segregation of the population; growth of the suburb crisis; unreasonable increase in house prices in cities to a level that is inaccessible to the majority of the population. The most significant globalization challenges include: increased global competition, growing regional differentiation and specialization; degradation of the real sector of the economy; significant increase in energy consumption; restricting access of a large part of the population to high-quality goods and services at reasonable prices; change of natural and climatic conditions for people’s life, strengthening ecological problems. The unreasonability of the widespread statement on the ineffectiveness of agglomerations and excessive absorption of resources is proven. Prospects for further research in this direction are the development of theoretical principles and the development of practical recommendations for improving the adoption of managerial decisions at the level of regional governance bodies, taking into account the challenges of globalization and urbanization.

Peculiarities of Formation and Development of Mechanisms for Food Provision of Region (p. 142 - 148)

The article examines the food provision, which is an important indicator of the quality of socio-economic development of a territory (region) in the daily consumption of food products by the population, strengthening the food security of the country. The conditions of administrative-territorial reform aimed at transferring powers from central authorities to local authorities have significantly changed the system of food provision of territories, which forms the level of integrity in terms of food security of the country. The changes have also affected the centralized food provision system through the transfer of novel principles from the State level to the regional level. A balanced and effective system of providing the population with food affects the quality of its life, economic security of the State, its regions, competitiveness of Ukrainian agrarian industry world-wide, including in the European markets. The measures developed in order to implement the targeted tasks of the Food Security Strategy of the Regions are planned for the period of 3-5 years. A structural-logical scheme of the organizational-economic mechanism for food provision of region is proposed as a set of economic, technological and organizational measures carried out by the State and other market actors at the level of both the country and the regions to meet the needs of the population with food products, regulating the sale of agricultural products, its processing, guarantees of improvement of quality and security of food products and their price availability. The author examines the main directions of implementation of the mechanism for food provision of region, which are the following: ensuring sustainable growth of production, availability of products for consumers; exchange of agricultural products; formation of a mechanism for regulatory influence on production, trade in agricultural products (national and regional levels); association of small farms within the regions; introduction of guaranteed minimum purchase prices (high profitability of production); improving the level of product quality, introduction of ecological norms to stimulate the production, producing and selling of environmentally friendly foods.

Analyzing the European Practice on the Formation and Functioning of Local Self-Government and the System of Public Management of Territory Development (p. 149 - 156)

Effective until 2014 in Ukraine, the system of local self-government did not meet the existing needs of society. The functioning of local self-government bodies in most territorial communities did not provide the formation and support of the proper level of quality of life of citizens, necessary for the full development of people, their self-realization, protection of rights, provision of high-quality and affordable administrative, social and other services, did not create a favorable living space in the respective territories. The process of formation and development of the Ukrainian State required urgent reform of the administrative-territorial, political system and the establishment of a democratic institution of public power - local self-government, which is defined as the right and real capacity of a territorial community within the laws and powers to independently solve the issues of local development of their territories. Therefore, the reform of decentralization of power in Ukraine in 2014 was defined as one of the priorities, which provides for the construction of an effective system of territorial organization of power and public management of socio-economic development of territories. A detailed study of the experience of the formation and functioning of local self-government, best practices of the world countries, and in particular the EU countries, which have achieved sustainable development of territories and improved the welfare of their citizens, is relevant for the development of modern Ukraine and its regions and territories, as well as for the formation of its own effective public administration system at the local level.

Formation of Tourist Image of the City as a Strategic Direction of Development of Territory Marketing (p. 157 - 164)

The article is aimed at forming the tourist image of the city as a strategic direction of development of territory marketing. The article proves that a strong and positive image of the city is considered to be the effective and efficient mechanism allowing to fight for limited resources, competitive advantages and high competitiveness, representing a holistic set of characteristics, combining unique and original features of the city, as well as figurative ideas or perceptions that makes it possible for consumers, tourists, investors to distinguish and identify the city from among many other. The structure of the city’s potential, i. e., its economic, political, social and environmental components, on which the image of the territory is based, is provided. In the research, the existing instruments for creating and promoting a territorial image that can be used in both external and internal communications are proposed to be classified according to the four-component image structure, which includes conceptual, active, personal and attributive components. Studying the currently established image of the city and getting an idea of what position it occupies in the minds of target groups is an exceptionally important stage in the planning of urban marketing. Studying the image of the city is anything but easy task. That is why the article suggests to use an aggregate of different approaches, methods and specific tools in order to study the entire complex and multi-aspect nature of the image of the city of Kharkiv. An evaluation of such kind is needed in order to develop an algorithm for strategic management of the image of the territory. Whereas a positive and properly constructed relevant image can act as one of the instruments for attracting investments aimed at developing the territory and achieving the goals of the city development.

Statistical Modeling of the Energy Market Development in the Regions of Ukraine (p. 151 - 157)

The article is aimed at modeling the energy market of Ukraine on the meso-level, identifying its features and development problems, forming a system of indicators for monitoring the development of electricity production at the regional level. It is determined that Ukraine produces electrical power mainly from non-renewable energy sources, namely fossil and mineral fuels, using nuclear power plants and thermal power plants, which comprises 54% of the total electricity production. Wind, solar sources of electrical power, biofuels and hydroelectric power plants make up a smaller part of production – 7%. It is noted that Ukraine annually consumes about 92 million tonnes of oil equivalent (toe) of energy, has a high level of energy intensity of the economy, therefore, in order to reach the world average level, it is necessary to reduce energy consumption by 50 million toe. The level of losses of the produced and imported energy during its transformation and transportation to the end user is 44%. The potential for reducing energy consumption during consumption in sectors such as housing, budget-based and energy supply is about 19 million toe. To assess the state of the energy sector in Ukraine in 2019, a grouping of regions of Ukraine was carried out using cluster analysis. The regions that have entered the 1st cluster, namely: Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia regions, have the best prospects for the rapid innovative development of the energy market. The regions that are included in the 3rd cluster have the lowest values of energy sector development indicators among other clusters and require special attention to the development of new, cost-effective energy technologies. The system of indicators for the analysis of the energy market development on meso-level is substantiated. The proposed indicators are adapted to the indicators of monitoring the achievement of sustainable development goals, namely: sustainable development goals 7 «Ensuring access to inexpensive, reliable, sustainable and modern energy sources for everyone».

Methods of the Investment Attractiveness Assessment: The Regional Dimension (p. 157 - 163)

The theoretical and methodological approaches as to interpretation of the essence and methods of assessment of investment attractiveness of regions are examined, which allows to assert the absence of a generally accepted scientific approach and an objective valuation of the general investment situation in the regions. Based on the analysis of modern scientific approaches to the interpretation of the essence of the concept of «investment attractiveness of region», a conclusion has been drawn about its characteristics, which are: value of using the region as a domicile of company; a combination of location advantages that can be achieved in the process of doing business and are due to the specific characteristics of the region in which the activities take place; a set of regional location advantages that influence the achievement of investor’s targets (for example, operating expenses, sales revenue, profitability); the ability to rent a place in the region; the ability to convince investors to choose a region as a place to invest; the ability to stimulate investment by offering a combination of location advantages that can be achieved in the process of doing business. The method of analysis of the cost or number of investments accomplished (or jobs created) in a particular industry to assess the investment attractiveness of the region is substantiated, which will allow to objectively determine the spatial differentiation of the inflow of foreign capital to a particular region. It is specified that when determining the weight of certain factors of investment attractiveness, the obtained values should allow to carry out a preliminary analysis of investment attractiveness, which most coincides with the actual investment activity of the regions. A generalized grouping by the level of aggregation (region, subregion, territorial community, amalgamated hromada, cities) of the categories (factors) of potential investment attractiveness is proposed.

Challenges of Financial Globalization for the Development of the Territories of Ukraine: Directions of Minimization and Regulation (p. 164 - 170)

The active development of digital technologies, in particular Internet banking, algorithmic trading, big data industry, credit electronic platforms, blockchain and cryptocurrencies with a gradual abandonment of cash payments, causes a radical transformation of the financial system of most countries and creates new challenges in monetary lending and increases financial imbalances in the regional development of Ukraine. The article is aimed at deepening the theoretical and applied bases of the study of the mutual relationship between the challenges of globalization and financial imbalances in regional development, substantiating the main directions of their regulation, and minimizing the negative consequences of financial globalization. The article defines the need for a radical transformation of Ukraine’s regional financial systems and the development of a new policy to counteract the challenges of globalization in order to overcome financial imbalances in the regions of the country, namely: clear separation of powers of the subjects of regional regulation of the cryptocurrency market; implementation of financial regional monitoring and control over the subjects of primary financial monitoring; development of digital infrastructure, creation of conditions for the implementation of network segmentation technologies; retraining and social adaptation of financial workers due to the active development of information technologies. Counteracting financial crime, money laundering, cross-border and international crime is a key component in overcoming financial imbalances in the development of Ukrainian regions. It is proved that the introduction of a comprehensive system of minimizing the manifestations of shadowing the monetary sector will have positive results in the context of strengthening financial security.

Technologies for Researching the Level of Economic Sustainability of Regional System (p. 119 - 130)

The article contains the results of theoretical and practical aspects of researching the level of economic sustainability of regional systems. The conception of modeling the sustainability of the economic system of regional system is proposed, an aggregate of models for determining the level of the economic sustainability of region is formed. The research is aimed at improving the instrumentarium of systemic assessment and forecasting of economic sustainability of regional systems in strategic, tactical and operational directions, allowing to increase the efficiency of the State regulation in conditions of insustainability, inequality and deformed self-organization of regional socio-economic systems, as well as to obtain synergistic effect in ensuring the parameters of mutually coordinated development of components of economic sustainability of region. Taking into account the modern instrumentarium of methods and models for assessing and analyzing the economic sustainability of regional system, a conceptual methodological basis is proposed, the innovative nature of which consists in the application of the methodology of project analysis and business processes, instruments of economic and mathematical modeling, reflecting various systemic aspects according to a number of criteria and components, among which are distinguished the following: financial, technical and technological, personnel and intellectual, communication and information components. The proposed technology for assessing the level of economic sustainability of region includes three stages of research: formation of a set of models to determine the components of assessing the economic sustainability of region; diagnostics of environment threats and modeling of their impact on the level of economic sustainability of region; forecasting the level of sustainability of the regional system. The proposed methodological basis for assessing the economic sustainability of the regional system allows to quickly and adequately solve the problems of diagnosing sustainability and to form managerial decisions for the response of the economic system to the impact of external and internal threats.

The Impact of Barriers on the Disproportionate Regional Development: A Review and Analysis (p. 82 - 90)

The article is aimed at distinguishing and analyzing the barriers to economic development of Ukraine, forming a theoretical basis for the implementation of a convergent development strategy in order to overcome them in both the short and the long term. The article analyzes the impact of barriers on the disproportionate development of regions, which, in turn, has negative consequences for the convergent development of regions. The author structured groups of barriers to economic development of the regions of Ukraine and provided their characterizations. The barriers are defined as those most easy to overcome and those overcoming which is difficult even in the long run. In the course of the research, the most important barriers as to the development of regions are distinguished, namely: arising from resource shortages; socio-political and cultural; related to planning; organizational and institutional; related to current management; related to monitoring and control. The author presents the conception of convergent economic development, directed, in particular, towards overcoming the extant barriers that slow down the development of regions. The relevance of a more detailed research of the development of regions of Ukraine within the framework of a single conception of convergence to unify the approach to overcoming the impact of barriers on the disproportionate development of regions is substantiated. It is proved that the conception of convergent development of regions is a holistic idea of the equilibrium development of regions, which includes a set of subjects and objects of regional development, a system of agreed goals and means of their achievement aimed at balancing and coordinating the development indicators and overcoming barriers. It is determined that the prerequisite for the effective implementation of the conception of convergent development of the regions of Ukraine is their adaptability – that is, the ability to respond to new requirements and opportunities arising from innovative upgrades of technology, innovations, modernization in management. The author also proves that there is a need to limit the scale of disparities in the economic development of regions by leveling the development barriers, which constitutes one of the main tasks of regional policy.

Transformation of Regional Management in the Context of Globalization to Ensure Sustainable Development of Ukrainian Regions (p. 90 - 97)

Modern directions of formation of the global economic, informational and financial space define fundamentally new tasks for the formation and development of forms and methods of management of regional systems. The article is aimed at substantiating the need to transform regional management to ensure sustainable development of Ukrainian regions in the context of globalization. The article develops theoretical approaches to the interpretation of the concept of «region» and presents an author’s own definition of this concept as an open holistic system, the unity of which is secured by a number of factors (of geographical, political, social and economic nature), the elemental composition of which is characterized by a wide range of elements (including regional institutions), which as a result of constant interaction and mutual influence acquire new qualities and characteristics and cause qualitative changes in the system. The main features of the regional system include: the ability to self-reproduction; purposeful nature and dependence of its functioning and development on the composition and completeness of resource provision. The content of the concept of «globalization» is closer defined. It is proved that globalization puts forward new requirements for regional management, restrictions on modern economic development are outlined as well. Regions of Ukraine are actively involved in the processes of international and interregional integration, and the foreign economic activity of the regions has significant prospects. At that, the degree, depth of involvement of the region in the international integration process, the success of its foreign economic activity directly depend on the focus on innovative conduct of financial-economic activities, complementarity in financing, the use of the mechanism of public-private partnership. The main challenges of sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine (except for the pandemic) include: involvement of economic agents; development of engineering infrastructure; construction and renovation of housing stock; ordering land use; high-level support of employment; urgent ecological problems. Ensuring the sustainability of both regions and the State in modern conditions is possible by strengthening the horizontal links of interregional interaction. The latter expands the capabilities of regional governing bodies in terms of increasing the internal potential of the regions, creates conditions for more effective problem solving in the economic, social and political spheres. Prospects for further research in this direction are the development of theoretical principles of regional management and the development of practical recommendations for its improvement, taking into account the challenges of globalization.

Adaptive Development of Regional Economic System Business Entities in the Conditions of Digitalization (p. 97 - 103)

Modern economic conditions dictate increasingly stringent conditions for the functioning of subjects (participants) in the market, which are primarily related to the globalization of the economy, the introduction of digital norms of business processes, increasing competition in all spheres of socio-economic life and the corona-crisis. That is why there are questions of adaptation of economic entities to certain changes and the development of their skills in a rather difficult economic environment and under the influence of external factors that sometimes are even impossible to measure. Further changes in the external environment and the place of economic entities of the regional economic system in them, we think that it necessary to consider from the standpoint of their adaptive development in the context of digitalization, which became the purpose of this scientific article. This purpose allowed to form the following tasks: to explore the essence of adaptive development; to determine approaches to the adaptive development of economic entities of the regional economic system, namely: system-complex, process-effective, flood-psychological; to introduce the structure of adaptive development of economic entities of the regional economic system from the standpoint of a synergetic approach; to improve the conceptual and categorical apparatus of regional economy, by introducing the concept of "adaptive development of economic entities of the regional economic system" (which, in this study we will understand the continuous process of transformation in the management system of economic entities, which is based on the transition of the system from one qualitative state to another under the conditions of established contradictions of the external environment and long-term (strategic) program of formation and increase of internal potential for the purpose of increase of efficiency of functioning of subjects of managing of regional economic system); consider qualitative changes in the implementation of the digital transformation of the regional economy. So, the adaptive development of the management system of economic entities of the regional economic system according to the environmental influences in the context of digitalization is a rather complex and multifaceted process that requires organizational changes within the management system and coordinated action by staff and management. Furthermore adaptive development requires the new competencies by staff, which makes it possible to move to a deeper immersion in the information and communication space through digital transformations.

Improving the Mechanism of Strategic Management of Structural Transformations of the Economy of Cities of Regional Significance in Lviv Region (p. 103 - 113)

The article analyzes the content of development strategies of cities of region significance in Lviv region and identifies the lack of goals, objectives and measures to improve the sectoral structure of the economy, as well as the limited ability of local authorities to influence the structure of the cities’ economy with the help of instruments that provide tax preferences for enterprises of priority industries, investors, small and medium-sized businesses. In order to eliminate shortcomings in the strategic management of structural transformations of cities, directions of improvement of the existing institutional mechanism in terms of taxation of the investment, innovation and entrepreneurial activity of enterprises of priority sectors of the economy, investors who finance the development of high-tech industries and high-tech types of economic activity, as well as enterprises operating within special modes of economic activity, are proposed. It is substantiated that the introduction of real tax preferences for enterprises will ensure the implementation of effective structural policy at the local level, since the authorities will receive real levers to increase investment, innovative, entrepreneurial activity in priority sectors of the economy. In order to strengthen control and responsibility for the implementation of strategic tasks, it is proposed to use the problem-target method in strategic planning of city development, which, unlike the program-target approach, provides for a clear allocation of resources between the goals aimed at solving structural problems in the economy. As result of the study, the list of indicators of structural changes in the economy and the basic principles of establishing quantitative criteria for achieving strategic goals to improve the structure of the economy of cities of region significance are determined.

Financial and Credit Instruments in the Local Structural Policy of Urban Development in the Western Region of Ukraine (p. 162 - 169)

The article discloses the peculiarities of the use of financial and credit instruments, in particular local borrowings, in the local structural policy. It is identified that the task of local self-government bodies of cities is to form their own local structural policy, which would focus on innovative, technological and inclusive development. The implementation of such a policy requires the use of a number of instruments, including budget, investment, financial and credit, grant, marketing and management, tax, etc. An important place is given to financial and credit instruments, as they allow attracting additional financial resources for the development of the city economy. Among the financial instruments, the author examines local borrowings, including bond loans and local guarantees. Bond loans have not become a common insrtument for attracting financial resources, which is associated with a number of obstacles to their issue. Among the cities of the Western region of Ukraine, only Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk issued bonds for the period of 2015–2020. It is determined that local borrowing also does not play a significant role in the formation of the cities’ financial resources due to the low creditworthiness of the latter, as well as the complex procedure for obtaining. The instrument of local guarantees enables local self-government bodies to implement projects for the development of communal infrastructure and resource saving. Due to legislative restrictions, local self-government bodies cannot use local borrowings to implement local structural policies by supporting strategic sectors of the local economy. The full use of this instrument in local structural policy requires amendments to the legislation that would give greater autonomy to local self-government bodies and create opportunities for increasing the competitiveness of the urban economy.

The Investment Attractiveness of Economic Activities in the Regions of Ukraine (p. 169 - 174)

The article is aimed at studying the investment attractiveness of types of economic activity in the regions of Ukraine, determining the impact of factor values (of types of economic activity) on the volume of products sold. As a result of the study, a methodical approach to the analysis and determination of investment attractiveness of types of economic activity in the regions of Ukraine is developed; the influence of factor values (of types of economic activity) on the volume of products sold is determined, the main ones are distinguished by means of correlation analysis and the significance of the selected factors of influence is checked using regression analysis. For the analysis, data was formed on the basis of official data of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine and the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine. To obtain more accurate summary results, the data was normalized in order to convert the values of signs in the input vector to a certain specified range. After the normalization, summary data for correlation and regression analysis were computed. On the basis of the carried out analysis, the economic-mathematical models of influence of investment instruments of the State budget on types of economic activity and a model of influence of investment instruments of foreign direct investment on types of economic activity in the regions of Ukraine were built. The investment attractiveness of certain regions for public investment and for foreign investments is substantiated. Prospects for further research in this direction are the analysis of the impact of other factors on the investment attractiveness of a particular region and Ukraine in general.

The Modern Trends in Development of Cooperation of Territorial Communities in Ukraine (p. 120 - 126)

Under the current conditions for the development of local finances, the issue of financial support for the development of territorial communities is especially relevant. According to domestic experience, not all hromadas are completely self-sufficient and able to fully ensure the implementation of socio-economic development tasks. In this case, it becomes necessary to search for additional sources of financial income and alternative instruments to solve issues of local importance. One of these instruments is the cooperation of territorial communities. The the article is aimed at examining the advantages and possible ways to improve the cooperation of territorial communities. Analyzing, systematizing and generalizing the legislative framework and domestic experience, the essence of the mechanism of cooperation between communities, as well as trends in its development in Ukraine, are considered. The relevance of the instrument of cooperation of territorial communities in the context of the introduction of administrative and territorial reform is characterized. The dynamics of the number of concluded agreements on cooperation between hromadas is analyzed. The main forms of implementation of cooperation between territorial communities, their signs and trends of application by local self-government bodies in practice are considered. The key areas in which interested communities cooperate most to solve common problems of socio-economic development are highlighted. The regional distribution of intermunicipal cooperation projects in Ukraine is analyzed. The main advantages of cooperation of territorial communities are characterized and ways to improve this mechanism in the conditions of modern development of local finances are proposed. Prospects for further research in this direction are the development of proposals for spreading the practice of such cooperation in all regions of Ukraine and the creation of stimuli for local self-government bodies to use this instrument to ensure the development of their communities and provide high-quality public services to local residents.

The Level of Health and the Factors Influencing the Position of Region on this Indicator in the Rankings (p. 127 - 136)

The article analyzes Ukraine’s position in a number of international rankings that determine the level of development of region and the quality of well-being of the population. Attention is paid to the analysis of the indicator of health level awareness, which is obtained within the framework of the survey of the opinion of the population of a particular country. A comparison of international welfare ratings by the presence or absence of a component of health in them when calculating the integral indicator is made. Statistical information on the values of this indicator in a number of countries of the European region and in Ukraine has been disclosed. The results of public surveys on the socio-economic situation of Ukrainian regions are presented. The level of health is chosen as a categorical factor, the dependence of which on certain factors is determined in the environment of the Statistica.10 software using the single-factor dispersion analysis alternately for the formed four groups of countries, which are ranked in accordance with the value of the self-conscious health level index. The analysis was conducted from the group of countries with the highest index value to the countries with the lowest values: the relationship between this indicator and the level of consumption of fruits and berries; the amount of organic farms and health care costs in the analyzed country. The statistical target relationship between the level of health awareness and healthy consumption among the population of the country is determined. For the «Number of organic farms» indicator, dependence is made only for groups of countries with lower positions in the health rating. With an increase in positions in the ratings, this factor is not indicative and does not affect the ranking itself. It is concluded that the behavior of the population, motivation for a healthy lifestyle are highly significant for the formation of a healthy environment in a region. The carried out bibliometric analysis identified further scientific developments of the author in determining the role of public health in forming the welfare of the region and the territorial brand.

Prospects for the Transformation of Real Estate into a Source of Increasing the Financial Capacity of Territorial Communities (p. 137 - 144)

Real estate is one of the basic assets of functioning of the territorial community. However, due to improper activity or inaction of local self-government bodies, it remains only a nominal asset of the administrative-territorial unit and does not contribute to increasing the financial capacity of the territorial community. The article is aimed at identifying and suggesting possible ways to transform real estate into a source of increasing the financial capacity of the territorial community. In the course of the study, the extant obstacles were highlighted, including corruption schemes that cause local budgets to lose revenues from rent and alienation of communal property. It is noted the need to intensify the activities of local self-government bodies in the direction of inventory of all communal real estate, to establish its market value and increase the transparency of operations for the provision of communal real estate for rent. The possibility of development of municipal rental housing in large cities is considered. Special attention is paid to the real estate, which is privately owned as a quasi-asset of the territorial community, which ensures revenues to the local budget in the form of the tax on a real estate other than the land plot. The analysis of changes in the situation of the real estate market in 2020-2021, which indirectly affect the filling of local budgets with proceeds from the tax on a real estate other than the land plot, was carried out. The possible ways to increase the financial capacity of territorial communities by strengthening the role of communal and private real estate within the assets of the territorial community are identified, suggested, and substantiated.

The Toolbox for Recognizing the Groups of Ukraine’s Regions by Indicators of Disparities in their Social and Economic Development (p. 115 - 126)

The research is aimed at forming a toolbox for recognizing regional communities according to socio-economic development indicators. A carried out study of scientists’ works demonstrated a lack of evaluation tools for studying groups of regions by levels of disparities, which complicates the study of interregional disparities and the impact of various factors upon them. The paper carries out a classification of levels of disparities in the regions by spheres of development, formes a mathematical apparatus for recognizing and forecasting of levels of disparities in the regions. The groups of regions by levels of disparities in seven spheres of development is researched: general economic, socio-demographic, structural, socio-economic, foreign economic, natural-ecological, production. Three groups of regions were identified by levels of disparities in these areas of development: with balanced sphere disparities, with controlled (restrained) sphere disparities, with uncontrolled (unrestrained) sphere disparities. A spatial-dynamic assessment of disparities in the development of clustered groups of regions is advisable for the development and implementation of regional policy measures aimed at regulating the regional development disparities. The originality of the presented work is the study of cluster groups of regions by the levels of disparities in various spheres of life, which allows to assess interregional disparity in the complex and develop a number of measures to resolve the disparities in the development of regions within the country.

Regional Dimension of Energy Efficiency and Energy Security of Ukraine (p. 127 - 134)

The article is aimed at determining the opportunities of the regions of Ukraine for self-sufficiency in energy resources, improving energy security and energy efficiency, as well as forming a methodological approach to determining regional ratings by the level of energy efficiency and energy security. The indicators of energy efficiency and energy security, proposed in the article, is advisable to use as a base for a further system of indicators, applied to determine regional ratings of energy efficiency and energy security. The proposed indicators allow to comprehensively assess the level of energy security in the region, are relevant and can be easily calculated using data from the State Statistics Service of Ukraine. To assess the level of energy efficiency and energy security of the regions of Ukraine, it is advisable to use the author’s own methodology, which also allows to assess the availability and quality of energy resources use. The application of the proposed two-level system of indicators and the method of their calculation allows solving the problem of informing different categories of users about energy efficiency and energy security of the regions in order to determine the need for control influences in conditions of limited information. Based on the results obtained, both the State and regional administration bodies together with local self-government bodies will be able to assess the results achieved, compare them with the achievements of other regions and develop a system of measures to improve the energy efficiency of the regional economy and ensure energy security in the future. Further researches of the author will be aimed at calculating on the basis of the formed methodological approach of the rating of energy efficiency and energy security of the regions of Ukraine, carrying out a comparative analysis of the regions and developing proposals for solving identified problems, based on the rating results obtained.

Essence and Types of Territorial Community: Analyzing the Theoretical Aspects (p. 134 - 145)

Each country forms its own systems of territorial organization of power and public administration, which occurs under the influence of the national, historical, geographical, natural, economic, social, cultural, demographic and other features. Considerable attention of researches of scholars and practitioners was paid to the creation and functioning of the territorial community. The choice of theoretical approaches and models of the territorial community influences the efficiency of the functioning of the local self-government system, the ability to fulfill the assigned powers, to ensure a high level of quality of life of citizens and sustainable development of the territory. Studies of global and domestic experience allow to systematize the accumulated knowledge on this issue, which makes it possible to offer a national system of public administration at both the central and the local levels using the best theoretical and practical developments of the countries of the world. Formation of the definition of the concept of the territorial community was carried out over a long historical period under the influence of versatile scientific judgments, ideas, theoretical approaches, practical research. The analysis and study of foreign and domestic experience on this issue is characterized by various formulations, views, principles, signs, etc. regarding the formation and functioning of territorial communities. In parallel with the phrase «territorial community», researchers use other names, such as commune, territorial communion, territorial collectivity, local co-partnership, socio-territorial community, etc. The lack of currently generalized scientific opinion regarding the specification of the content of a certain term, the variety of volumes and approaches to its interpretation confirms the expediency of further research on this topic.

Priorities and Risks in the Implementation of Regional Smart-Oriented Economic Policy (p. 73 - 79)

The article discusses the economic essence of smart specialization. The European experience of applying the conception of «smart specialization» in strategic management is studied. The main components of the conception of «start-specialization» are considered. The directions of influence of start-specialization on increase of innovative activity and competitiveness of the territory are examined. The major problems, the solution of which start-specialization is aimed at, are identified. The emphasis is placed on the fact that smart specialization sets out not as much stimulating innovations, as activating the long-term structural changes in the region’s economy and be aimed at identifying strengths and developing competitive advantages of regions based on the extant structure of the regional economy. The need to introduce the conception of smart specialization in the sphere of implementation of regional economic policy in Ukraine is substantiated. The main goals, principles, priorities and risks of implementation of regional start-oriented policy are researched. It is noted that the implementation of the start-oriented regional policy, as a model of structural changes, will expand the opportunities for denfining and directly supporting priority types of economic activity for certain regions, which will increase their competitive advantages and contribute to the structural diversification of the economy on an innovative basis. Considerable attention is paid to the study of the main barriers to the implementation of smart specialization, the directions of their leveling are proposed. Attention is accentuated on the need to apply an integrated approach to the development of the regions of Ukraine, which provides for the mutual coordination of various policies implemented by the State and regions (economic, structural, industrial, innovative, foreign economic, etc.) and stakeholder activities in this process. An integrated approach to modern regional policy will ensure strategic planning of socio-economic development of region. Implementation of start-specialization priorities will facilitate the growth of the share of high-tech types of economic activity within the structure of the regional economy. The main instrument for the implementation of this direction of reforms should be regional strategies, the effectiveness of which will ensure the transition from prioritization to the implementation of specific projects.

The Typification of Regions of Ukraine According to the Level of Development of the Trade Industry by the Method of Cluster Analysis (p. 159 - 164)

The article is aimed at analyzing peculiarities of the use of cluster analysis for typifyng the regions of Ukraine according to the indicators that characterize the level of development of the trade industry. The article defines the role and place of the trade industry in the country’s economy. In particular, the modern trade industry, experiencing the next stage of dynamic transformation changes, remains one of the leading sectors of the economy of Ukraine, its importance for the development of the national economy is very difficult to overestimate. Sufficient attention is paid to the regional aspect of the implementation of domestic trade, in particular, the study of the level of development of trade activities in certain territories of the country and their further comparative analysis. Taking this into consideration, the article discusses in detail the features and stages of application of one of the methods of modeling multidimensional processes (cluster analysis) for grouping the regions of Ukraine by the level of development of the trade industry. As the information base of the study, indicators characterizing both the current state of the trade industry and the prospects for its development are used. The analysis was carried out for the period of 2017–2020, which allowed to analyze the dynamics of changes in the regional segment of Ukraine’s domestic trade. The carried out analysis showed that the most stable, in terms of the level of development of the trade industry during the study period, is the first cluster – the regions with a high level of trade industry development (Dnipropetrovsk, Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, and Kharkiv regions). The second cluster includes regions with an average level of internal trade development. Donetsk, Poltava, Zaporizhzhia and Vinnytsia regions are stable representatives of this cluster. The most numerous is the third cluster of regions with low levels of trade development, which can be explained by the prolonged impact of the socio-economic and political crisis that began in 2014. It is determined that Ukraine is characterized by uneven development of territories, the corresponding trend is inherent in the development of the trade industry in the regions justifying the results of clustering.

The Current State of the Financial and Material Base of Territorial Communities in Terms of Decentralization (p. 184 - 189)

The article defines the peculiarities of managing the financial and material base of territorial communities of Ukraine in the conditions of decentralization. The economic essence of the term «financial and material base» is given and the main components of this indicator are allocated, allowing to assess the financial security of territorial communities. The main factors of influence on the financial and material base of territorial communities related to the implementation of the decentralization reform in Ukraine are determined. New financial opportunities and responsibilities of administrative and territorial units are allocated, which is reflected in strengthening the own financial base of local self-government. A dynamic analysis of the ratio of incomes of the general fund of local budgets to the GDP of Ukraine during 2014–2020 was carried out. The process of transfer of the joint ownership objects to communal property of territorial communities in the context of regions of Ukraine as of 05.03.2021 is considered. Since the assessment of the state of financial and material resources of territorial communities is a complex process and includes the management of communal property, the main ways of using communal property are defined, among which it is worth to highlight: rent, privatization, independent use of property by the territorial community, leasing, concession and others. The assessment of the ways of using communal property objects on the example of the territorial community of Lviv for 2018–2019 was carried out. It is proved that the analysis carried out is evidence of an increase in the level of financial security of local budgets and a justification of positive trends in the growth of their resource base as a result of financial decentralization. Negative factors of influence on the main indicators of financial and material base of local budgets are determined. Also a number of problems faced by local self-government bodies are specified and ways to solve them are suggested.

Increasing the Central-to-peripheral Interaction of the Region Center and Districts of the Region: The Conceptual Aspect (p. 189 - 196)

In Ukraine, the partnership of regional centers and districts of region has great potential in the context of promoting the development of territories, because its implementation in the long term will allow to overcome the disparity in the level of socio-economic development of territories and increase the viability of region as a whole. However, given that this potential is not fully involved today, it is important to establish a dialogue between the territorial communities of the center and the periphery on the search for opportunities and prospects for joint development. The article proposes a conceptual approach to increasing the center-to-peripheral interaction of the regional center and districts of the region at the present stage of decentralization. It is emphasized that the basic principle of the policy of increasing the center-to-peripheral interaction of regional center and districts of region should be the principle of sustainability (achieving economic, environmental and social balance), and achieving the priorities of sustainable development should be consistent with other principles of effective center-to-peripheral interaction (in particular, parity, inclusivity, efficiency, effectiveness and strategic orientation, innovation, development, social cohesion, resistance, etc.). It is determined (taking into account foreign experience and domestic realities of regional development) that the main directions of interaction of the examined administrative units should be: modernization of infrastructure; creation of tourism and recreational network; development of industry clusters; production of innovations; development of business support infrastructure; digitalization; development of social and civic opportunities. The results of increasing the center-to-peripheral interaction of regional center and districts of region should satisfy three components of the vital activity of hromadas in the region: economic, social, environmental.

Assessing the Investment Activity Efficiency of Ukrainian Regions (p. 197 - 204)

The article is aimed at assessing the efficiency of investment activity of the regions of Ukraine. The results of the carried out survey should allow to identify factors influencing this characteristic of the regional economic system and to form certain tasks for their solution in the context of intensification of investment processes at the regional level. A theoretical analysis of existing approaches to the assessment of the efficiency of investment activity at the regional level was carried out, allowing to form the author’s own approach, which is based on the computation of the aggregate integral indicator of the efficiency of investment activity of the regions of Ukraine. In order to compute the aggregate integral indicator of the efficiency of investment activity of the regions of Ukraine, a methodology is proposed, which consists in computing a set of relative indicators that are distributed within three directions, namely: impact of investment activity on the production development of region, financial development of region, and social development of region. As result of computing relative indicators, an assessment of the integral level of investment activity efficiency was carried out separately by its impact on the production, financial and social development of region. On the basis of the three computed integral indicators, the aggregate integral indicator of the efficiency of investment activity of the regions of Ukraine was calculated, allowing to divide them into regions with low, medium, higher than average, and high level of efficiency of investment activity. All analytical computations were systematized, which made it possible to distinguish the main factors influencing the efficiency of investment activity of the regions of Ukraine, taking into account of which would allow to activate the investment process at the regional level and achieve its main goals.

The Relationship between Problems of Human Resource Management and Personnel Policy in the Context of Decentralization of Ukraine (p. 147 - 153)

The article is concerned with the topical issue of personnel provision for the development of amalgamated hromadas (AHs) in Ukraine. The article is aimed at scientific substantiation of the relationship between problems of human resource management and personnel policy of territorial communities in the context of decentralization of Ukraine. The article identifies and describes the most common problems of human resource management and personnel policy of amalgamated hromadas in the context of the decentralization reform in Ukraine: lack of a system for managing professional development, training and advanced training of the AH population; negative image of employees of local self-government bodies in Ukrainian society; lack of opportunity to realize one’s own professional competence and abilities; crisis of demographic reproduction and migration processes. Among the problems of personnel policy the authors identified the following: insufficient number of qualified specialists; lack of an optimal system of staffing; violation of democratic principles of openness, publicity and justice in the resolution of personnel issues; occurrence of corruption at different levels of government; irrational use of human resources; low prestige of work along with low wages. The cognitive relationship of problems in the field of personnel provision for the development of territorial communities is substantiated. The expediency of taking into account the problems of human resources use and personnel policy management as the main component of the socioeconomic development of amalgamated hromadas is specified. The relationship between human resource management problems and the efficiency of the personnel policy of territorial communities is proved. The authors substantiate expediency of directing the State policy of regional development towards: providing the territory with highly qualified human resources; development of intellectual capital of territorial communities; establishing constructive cooperation between educational institutions, research institutions, and enterprises of territorial communities; stimulating the development of social partnership in the context of decentralization.

The Problems and Prospects of Socioeconomic Development of Regions of Ukraine (p. 198 - 204)

The article identifies the problems and prospects of socioeconomic development of the regions of Ukraine on the basis of coordination of the interests of the State authorities, representatives of business and society. It is noted that the existant approaches to solving social and economic problems of the regions of Ukraine do not fully meet the current requirements and conditions for the existence of territories and hamper all reproduction processes that could ensure the development of the regional economy. It is singled out that the existing difficult conditions of doing business and the present political situation aggravate the problems of disparities in the regions of the country. The classification of regions of Ukraine by levels and rates of economic and social development is provided. The places in the rating of regions according to the criteria of economic growth are calculated. The barriers that exist today on the path of economic and social development of the territories of Ukraine are specified. It is noted that under these conditions, the economy of the regions of Ukraine is characterized by a decrease in the level of financial security of development in consequence of the financial and economic crisis, a decrease in the sources of additional (extra-budgetary) financial resources, an unfavorable investment climate and ineffective economic policy of local authorities. The prospects of socioeconomic development of the regions of Ukraine are defined. It is noted that regional authorities and business representatives need to pay attention to the creation of stock markets in the regions, the emergence and development of which will contribute to investment attractiveness in various spheres of economic activity. It is concluded that the extant problems of socioeconomic development of the regions of Ukraine pose a number of questions to the State authorities regarding the harmonious growth of the economy of all regions. First of all, this concerns: improving the quality of life of the population, reducing mortality, improving the level of ecological safety, developing priority industry sectors, increasing the competitiveness of regional economic systems. The proposed directions and methods of solving the problems of socioeconomic development of the regions of Ukraine will provide new opportunities for establishing relations between the authorities, business and society on the basis of a balance of common interests.

Assessing the Socioeconomic Development of Ukrainian Regions (p. 45 - 52)

The research is concerned with the construction of a comprehensive index of socioeconomic development of the regions of Ukraine. For this purpose, a set of data from the rating assessment of the Ministry of Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine was used. Relying on a large number of indicators (64 indicators, which are combined into 12 groups reflecting a certain aspect of the socioeconomic development of the regions) is the main advantage of this rating assessment among other authors’ approaches. However, in the rating assessment from the Ministry there are significant shortcomings associated with the calculation of this comprehensive assessment. Firstly, some values are absent in the set of indicators (most often concerning Luhansk and Donetsk regions). Secondly, there is a simple method of aggregation: the arithmetic mean for each group and among 12 groups, which raises doubts about the consistency of a large number of different indicators in content with the index. To correct the shortcomings of the rating assessment, the article pays more attention to the processing of the data set and applies several methods of aggregation of indicators into a comprehensive index, which are compared to each other and to the rating assessment of the Ministry of Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine. As a result, the comprehensive index has become more balanced due to greater consistency of indicators with a comprehensive index. The results obtained on the basis of the calculations show that in 2015 and 2018, the city of Kyiv had the highest level of socioeconomic development, the worst was the Luhansk region, which, among other things, is the result of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. During these years, Dnipropetrovsk and Kyiv regions also had a high rating. The indices show a significant discrepancy between all regions, and especially with city of Kyiv and Luhansk region. During 2015–2018. there is a tendency to increase the city of Kyiv index from the average value and, at the same time, to reduce this difference for the Luhansk region. But it is noted that some regions do not keep up with this tendency, so in 2015 most regions had values of a comprehensive index above average (13 regions), but in 2018 only eight of these regions remained at the mentioned level.

A brief historical review of the establishment of formations during the development of society is carried out. The main challenges faced by Ukraine in modern conditions are distinguished. An overview of the development of foreign economic activity of the regions of Ukraine is carried out and regional peculiarities of economic activity are highlighted. The main tasks that should be solved in the development and implementation of relevant programs of socioeconomic and spatial development of regions are determined. The tasks identified in the article are grouped by the main directions as follows: economic, social, production. It is substantiated that the spatial development of regions and the establishment of new formations in order to bridge the novel production links should be based on the principles of environmental friendliness and resource conservation. It is proved that the creation of new effective formations requires appropriate additional funding, which complicates this process, since today the legislation of Ukraine does not have a mechanism for financing such forms of cooperation. It is defined that in order to form effective spatial cooperation of the regions, it is necessary to appropriately amend both the regulatory and the organizational provision. It is necessary to develop an appropriate mechanism and organizational measures that would facilitate the formation of novel forms of production ties and contribute to the overall socioeconomic development of the regions in new conditions. The main principles on which the State policy should be based for creating conditions for spatial development of regions are proposed. Such principles include: the definition of appropriate «growth points» in the regions; taking into account new trends and requirements of international markets; establishment of effective interregional relations of both foreign and domestic policy; development of measures for the development of priority territories; taking into account the factors of the external and internal environment with the development of appropriate measures to minimize negative occurrences.

Analyzing the Theoretical-Methodological Approaches to Identifying and Overcoming Regional Problems in the System of Public Administration of Regions in Ukraine (p. 59 - 67)

The topic of public administration of regions remains relevant for all countries of the world in different historical periods of society development. The effectiveness of regional policy on the basis of timely identification and solution of existing territorial problems is the basis for finding ideas and approaches to the formation and functioning of an efficient system of public management of the development of a country as a whole and its regions in particular. Features of the functioning of world countries in different time periods of their existence, such as, for example, the change of tendencies, the emergence of contradictions, the acquisition of importance of certain major ideas for the formation of areas of territorial management under different conditions of development, led to the emergence of a number of theories that in the practical field have become the basis for the development of a methodology for public management of regional development, allowing to determine the principles, priorities, directions, methods of formation and functioning, mechanisms and models of development and management, ways of using resources, and so on. Using them allows to explain and anticipate the tendencies in the development of regions, develop approaches to identifying and overcoming territorial problems, and form instruments for practical implementation. A significant number of theories of regional development proposed in the scientific circle, in accordance with the similarity of goals and directions of implementation, are united into groups. These are theories of spatial placement, neoclassical, cumulative growth, self-development and competitiveness, sustainability, etc. At the stage of the contemporary development of Ukraine, characterized by the introduction of decentralization processes into public management of territorial development, the generalization of many years of world experience (in particular, European) along with the accumulated national experience, the use of the theoretical foundations of regional management will contribute to further improvement and search for new scientific and methodological approaches to identifying the problems of the development of Ukrainian regions and ways to solve them.

From Result to Efficiency: The Socioeconomic Context of Improvement of Priority Development Territories (p. 65 - 74)

The position of Ukraine on the world stage is determined by regional development, which increases the saturation and relevance of regional topic in scientific economic research. The acquisition of economic independence by the regions causes the need for reassessment of their position and place in the economic space. One of the instruments for improving the efficiency of regional development is the creation of priority development territories (PDT), which is based on special economic and legal regimes facilitating the intensification of investment activities, the creation of additional jobs, upgrading the standard of living of the population, the profitability of business entities, the completeness of local budgets, etc. The research is directed towards substantiating the theoretical and methodological principles and developing conceptual approaches to the efficiency of PDT development. The theoretical basis constituted the scientific works of domestic and foreign authors. In the process of research, the historical and logical method of general scientific cognition, system approach, analysis, induction, deduction were used. Generalization of different scientific points of view regarding the concepts of «result», «effect», «effectiveness», «efficiency» allowed to conclude that they have significant differences. It was observed that in modern science the issues of delimitation of these categories are debatable. In this regard, the subordination of the result, effect, effectiveness and efficiency is outlined. The author’s vision of the essence of socioeconomic efficiency of the territories of priority development is proposed, which means the state of social and economic conditions, as well as territorial disparities in development before and after the introduction of special economic and legal regimes. The author’s approach allows to expand the scientific vision of the essence and content of efficiency in contemporary realities. The conceptual provisions presented in the article form the basis for further systematization of the indicators of the result and content of effectiveness of improvement of priority development territories, which, in turn, be included in the basis of the methodology for assessing the efficiency of the development of PDT.

Revenues of Local Budgets in the Context of War: Transformation of the Structure, Prospects for Further Formation (p. 74 - 82)

The article names the factors that now affect the formation of the revenue side of local budgets in the context of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, namely: budget and tax liberalization; deregulation of business; loss of potential for paying taxes by enterprises located in regions where active hostilities are currently underway; narrowing of the tax base. The dynamics of formation of the revenue part of local budgets in January – April 2022 is analyzed, its comparison with the same period of the previous year is carried out. The rating of the regions of Ukraine by the volume of formation of revenues in the general fund of local budgets per 1 resident in January – April 2021 and January – April 2022 is carried out. The rating of the regions of Ukraine by the amount of collected tax on personal income per 1 resident in January – April 2021 and January – April 2022 is carried out. The author analyzes the level of implementation of the planned indicators of collection of individual taxes to local budgets (in terms of regions). The results are as follows: the decrease in the revenues of the general fund of local budgets of Ukraine in the share of regions where active hostilities were conducted or are being conducted; underperformance of annual income tax collection lists (in half of the regions of the country less than 30% of the annual plan was collected, of which less than 20% was collected in three regions); significant reduction in the role of excise tax; significant reduction in the role of land payments in the formation of the revenue side of local budgets. The transformation of the structure of the revenue part of local budgets towards strengthening the budget-forming role of personal income tax and, accordingly, reducing the share of excise tax and land payments in all regions of Ukraine, as well as reducing the share of single tax in almost half of the regions, is shown. Prospects for further formation of the revenue side of local budgets are emphasized, taking into account particularly – on the one hand, liberalization of budget and tax legislation, and on the other – further active hostilities in Ukraine.

The Scientific and Theoretical Foundations of Formation of Business Environment of Territories (p. 83 - 89)

Creating new opportunities for Ukrainian business is one of the priority directions of activity in the short and medium terms. The subject of the study is the theoretical and methodological foundations of the formation of the bases of the mechanism for managing the business environment of territories. In the scientific literature, the concept of «business environment» is often replaced by related categories that are used as synonyms. The level of «business environment» in the structural hierarchy of the concept of «environment» on the principle of increasing the degree of coverage of economic relations is determined. The understanding of the concept of «territory» is outlined from the point of view of the decentralization reform, which continues in Ukraine. Decentralization of power can be territorial – the transfer of power from the central city to other territories, and can be functional – by transferring decision-making powers from the main body of any branch of government to lower-level officials. The formation of a mechanism for managing the business environment of territories is considered in relation to the hierarchy of territorial distribution: the territory of the State, the territory of the region, the territory of the amalgamated hromada. The analysis of the opinions of scientists regarding the definition of the essence of the category of «business environment» is carried out. It is defined that in scientific thought there is no clear identification of the content of this term and there is an urgent need to determine the structure-forming elements of the mechanism for managing the business environment of territories. It is determined that the formation of business conditions is influenced by a number of factors according to a certain territorial level. Factors of influence are the external business environment, entrepreneurial environment, macroeconomic environment of entrepreneurial activity, institutional environment of entrepreneurial activity. The carried out analysis of the theoretical foundations of the formation of the business environment of the territories made possible to highlight the main features of the business environment as a system and its features at different levels of the territorial hierarchy.

The Methodological Provision of Integral Assessment of the Components of Sustainable Development of the Regions of Ukraine (Example of the Ecological Component) (p. 31 - 42)

Sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine depends on the harmonious combination of its three constituents – economic, ecological and social. The economic component of sustainable development should function taking into account social and ecological aspects, which contributes to the awareness of the need for a balanced attitude to the environment and allows to implement the right of every inhabitant of a region to a high quality of life. According to the triune conception of sustainable development, within the framework of which methodological provision should be built for assessing the components of sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine, the substantiation of priorities and directions for provisioning socioeconomic regional development takes into account the provision of human needs in a clean environment. Based on this, economic activities that harm the environment should be either limited or modernized based on the introduction of clean and energy-efficient technologies. The article is aimed at substantiating the methodological provision for the integral assessment of the components of sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine and its practical testing on the example of atmospheric air as component of the ecological constituent of regional development. The methodological provision for the integral assessment of the components of sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine is substantiated, which involves the implementation of the following successive stages: allocation of components of sustainable development of the region (economic, social, and ecological); determination of the component composition of each constituent; substantiation of the list of partial indicators, on the basis of which the characterization of certain components of each constituent of sustainable development is provided; integral assessment of the state of a particular component within each constituent of sustainable regional development. The implementation of the proposed methodological provision in practice on the example of the ecological constituent of sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine and its components – the atmospheric air of the regions – is considered. It is proved that the proposed methodological provision for the integral assessment of the components of sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine, which involves the use of the entropy method for the computing of integral indicators, allows to assess the state of certain components within terms of each constituent of sustainable regional development. Recommendations for the regions of Ukraine on the organization of monitoring and improving the quality of atmospheric air are provided.

Substantiating the Directions of Strategic Development of the Tourism Competitiveness of Region (p. 43 - 50)

The article is aimed at identifying and substantiating the priority of goals and directions of strategic development of the tourism competitiveness of region. The article proves that the development of tourism at the regional level is complex and multidimensional in nature, therefore, the management of tourism activities in the region should be carried out according to a number of different directions. This, in turn, necessitates the formation of a program for long-term development of tourism in the region, i. e., the conception of a tourism development strategy in order to take into account the influence of internal and external factors to the maximum, analyze the existing situation and develop a sequence of actions and measures to support and manage regional tourism, as well as to guarantee the necessary level of competitiveness of the region. Priority types of tourism for the region are allocated, which are the most attractive, possible for the development and obtaining an effect (economic, social or ecological), in accordance with the extant recreational and tourist potential of the region. When developing a strategy for the development of tourism in the region, it is necessary to take into account the priority of goals, as this will allow to improve the existing unsatisfactory state of the tourism industry in the region as best and as fast as possible. That is why the article proposes to substantiate the directions of strategic development and achieve competitive advantages in the tourism industry of the region by modeling the priority of development goals (on the example of the tourist competitiveness of the Kharkiv region). This can be achieved using the technology of the method of analyzing hierarchies, which belongs to the procedures of hierarchical presentation of elements, allowing to determine the essence and substantiate the tasks of making managerial decisions.

The Problems of Forming the Potential of Macroregions and Their Impact on the National Security (p. 61 - 66)

The article examines the problems of forming the potential of macroregions and their impact on the national security. The war, the global economic crisis, the existing complexities of society and the digitalization of production, as well as non-renewable natural resources in general, expose global security problems, political, economic, social, ecological problems of mankind. The accumulation of problems causes a radical change in people’s lives, a transformation of existing processes and management mechanisms at the level of the country, regions and economic entities. Under such conditions, the formation of the anti-crisis potential of regions for the development of society should be strategically focused on changing both social and economic paradigms, revising approaches to improving security at all levels and moving to Industry 4.0. In this regard, the structure, significance and priority of the components of the potential be changed. The present day conditions force scholars together with practitioners to reconsider the essence and content of the concept of «potential», as well as to consider in more detail the peculiarities of the formation of the development potential of regions during crises. It is defined that the potential of macroregion includes the total potential of all enterprises, as well as the potential of the following: households, local self-government bodies, natural and resource-based, infrastructure, investment, labor market. The potential of macroregions is an integral part of the country’s potential, which also includes: the potential of the public administration apparatus, the educational-scientific potential, integration potential, financial potential. It is determined that the potential of region is a complex phenomenon, the efficiency of which depends on the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of its components, as well as on the efficiency of managing their development and combination. The existing potential of macroregions is a component of both regional and public administration. When forming the provisions of the national security of the country, it is necessary to take into account the possibilities of the potential of macroregions.

The Methodical Approach to the Selection of Directions of Spatial Development of Amalgamated Territorial Communities in the Context of Decentralization and Martial Law (p. 67 - 73)

The article is concerned with topical issues of spatial development of territorial communities of Ukraine in the context of decentralization, taking into account the uncertainty caused by martial law and the pandemic. The purpose of this article is to develop a methodical approach to substantiating the directions of spatial development of territorial communities based on the conception, principles, scientific methods, taking into account the criteria of their efficiency and factors of spatial development of territorial communities. To substantiate the directions of spatial development of territorial communities, a methodical approach is developed, which is based on a problem-oriented approach to substantiating the instrumentarium of spatial development of territorial communities and on a cognitive map of causal relationships of spatial development, a model of solutions to the problem of development of territorial communities, which takes into account development scenarios depending on the type of community. The criteria for the efficiency of spatial development of territorial communities can be the following: criteria for the potential of self-development of territorial communities (self-government, self-financing, self-organization); performance criteria – the results of the implementation of programs for the implementation of strategies for the development of territorial communities, development projects, etc. In order to ensure the vital functions of territorial communities under martial law and increase their ability to solve problems in the new realities, when substantiating the directions of spatial development of territories, the following should be taken into account: development of the potential of self-development of the territorial community; problem-oriented management of human resources of the community; organization of training for representatives of territorial communities on the implementation of mechanisms to support enterprises and internally displaced persons; formation of budgets of territorial communities during martial law and post-war status; preservation of the country’s intellectual potential in the post-war period; preservation of the country’s production potential, which will provide both the territorial communities with essential goods and the servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – with contemporary means of security and food products; financial support for community life; improvement of regulatory policy; ensuring economic and food security of territorial communities, etc.

The Practice of Cooperation of Territorial Communities of Ukraine in Conditions of Decentralization (p. 74 - 78)

The practice of cooperation of territorial communities of Ukraine in the context of decentralization is analyzed, based on the understanding of the evolution of development of the institution of communities in terms of their functional-semantic perception. This allowed at the stage of enhanced role of territorial communities in Ukraine (after 2014) to substantiate the natural dominance of the integration approach to their understanding, which implies the formation of communities as a (relatively) independent institution of cooperation in the decentralized system of public administration. The purpose of the study is to analyze the practice and identify problematic aspects of cooperation between territorial communities of Ukraine in the context of decentralization. The object of the study is the processes of improving the State-controlled development policy and expanding the cooperation of territorial communities in Ukraine in the context of decentralization. In the course of research, general scientific and special methods were used: synthesis and system analysis, logical generalization, strategic management, comparative analysis. The logic of the analysis of cooperation between territorial communities of Ukraine is approbated on the main levels of their interactions – interinstitutional within the community (with the formation of social capital); with authorities at the regional and State levels; with other communities in the region and country; with communities of other countries; with international organizations; as representations in public organizations. As part of the analysis of the practice of cooperation between communities, indicators on the conclusion of agreements, their forms and spheres are analyzed. The level approach to the analysis made it possible to generalize the main shortcomings and positive experience of interaction of territorial communities of Ukraine at different institutional levels and to justify the general tendency of gradual formation of an inter-community culture of cooperation. Prospects for further scientific research in the analyzed area relate to the substantiation of directions and means of implementing positive foreign practices of the State regulation of the development of cooperation of territorial communities for their further approbation in Ukraine.

Industrial Parks as an Instrument for Forming Regional Poles of Growth (p. 79 - 85)

The economic recovery of Ukraine in the post-war period should be based on the regional poles of growth and the extant territorial communities should become such poles. One of the instruments that can facilitate the transformation of territorial communities into regional poles of growth can be industrial parks. The purpose of the article is to identify problems that prevent territorial communities with existing industrial parks from becoming regional poles of growth, and to find ways to solve them. The publication traces a shift in emphasis in the State regional policy on the formation of centers of economic growth for the period of post-war recovery from agglomerations and cities to territorial communities, which should become regional poles of growth. The theoretical basis for the formation of regional poles of growth is revealed. Attention is concentrated on industrial parks as an instrument that can facilitate the transformation of territorial communities into regional poles of growth. The directions of the State-based assistance to the development and functioning of industrial parks are characterized. The advantages of the full functioning of the industrial park for the territorial community are provided. The analysis of the location and functioning of industrial parks in Ukraine is carried out in view of the military aggression by the Russian Federation. Problems that have hampered the development and functioning of industrial parks over the past 7 years are identified. Industrial parks as an instrument for transforming territorial communities into regional poles of growth in the short and medium term are critically evaluated. It is pointed out the need to concentrate the efforts of the State authorities and local self-government bodies on the formation of conditions for the functioning of industrial enterprises on the territory of industrial parks (ensuring electrification, water supply and sewerage, gasification, access roads, promoting the construction of necessary industrial buildings, etc.), as well as providing businesses with the State security guarantees.

The System Principles of the Development and Implementation of the State Policy of Ensuring the Competitiveness of the Regions of Ukraine in the Conditions of European Integration (p. 102 - 107)

The importance of ensuring the competitiveness of the regions in solving the problems of strengthening foreign integration development on the part of the State is substantiated. The necessity of deepening Ukraine’s European integration in the context of countering external hybrid aggression and internal instability is emphasized. The threats that have long hindered both the socioeconomic development of the regions of Ukraine and their competitiveness and the country as a whole have been identified. We have to deal with structural disproportions and deformations of the regional economy, lack of stable and effective interregional economic ties, low efficiency of the institutional regional economic management system, regional asymmetry of interbudgetary relations, significant regional differentiation of the economy, import and export dependence of the regional economy, low quality of strategic programming of the regional economy. It is proved that the success of overcoming obstacles and threats is due to the formation of an internal institutional system, which should contain program documents. According to this, an urgent need to develop a National Strategy for ensuring the competitiveness of the State and its regions is specified. It is determined that at the regional level, the development and implementation by public administration and local self-government bodies of instruments to ensure increasing the level of competitiveness of regions should be recognized as key principles of the State policy. It is concluded that integral instruments for the implementation of the State policy to ensure the competitiveness of Ukrainian regions in the context of strengthening national European integration development should be considered the following: structural reforms and institutional changes in the socioeconomic development of region; creating a favorable regional investment climate; implementation of innovation policy (increasing the role of the regional component in the National Innovation System); ensuring budget and financial self-sufficiency of regions and decentralization of their financial competencies; improvement of regional economic policy; development of the export-import potential of territories.

Transformation of the World Economic System and Its Impact on the Economic Development of Region in the Conditions of Globalization (p. 108 - 117)

The article highlights the impact of the transformation of the world economic system on the economic development of re¬¬gion under the conditions of globalization. At this, it was determined that transformation (from the Latin transformatio – change) is an action or process of changing the appearance, nature, form or character of an object, and globalization (from the Latin “globus”, French “global” – general) is a process, trend, function of historical development, which is characterized by comprehensiveness and integrity. The intuitive understanding of the concept of economic development of territory connects its content with positive changes in a certain space. However, this interpretation, although generally understood, nevertheless has a number of uncertainties related to both individual definitions of development of region and the importance of synthesizing these definitions in a spatial context. At the same time, it should be emphasized that the global economy is in a state in which all countries and regions not only influence each other, but are also closely interconnected. Along with this trend of regional development, there is a growing awareness of the existence and need to take these processes into account in practice. Such a holistic and innovative approach to socioeconomic and cultural de¬velopment in a globalized economy contributes to the more effective use of all availab¬le potentials and resources of different spatial units, and – ultimately – to obtain their sustainable competitive advantage, including in the international arena.

The Theoretical Aspects of the Formation of the Mechanism for Innovative Development of the Regions of Ukraine (p. 117 - 126)

As result of Russia’s military aggression, Ukraine’s direct losses amount to more than $ 108 billion. Ensuring the economic growth of our State in the post-war period with the limitation of the main factors of production leads to the actualization of the issues of using the innovative potential of each region. Such a vector of development will strengthen the existing positions of each region by attracting investments to restore the economy and implement innovative projects, which in turn will ensure regional attractiveness. At this, the results of investment and innovation activities of both local economic entities and foreign companies, the effectiveness of reforming local self-government, and the territorial organization of power are of particular importance. The purpose of the article is to explore the theoretical aspects of the formation of the mechanism for innovative development of the regions of Ukraine. The publication defines the prerequisites and special features of the construction of such a mechanism, develops a scheme of interaction of its main elements: the State, regions, business, finance, educational and scientific sectors. The structure of the mechanism for innovative development of the regions of Ukraine is examined, the basic principles and methods of its formation are allocated. Characterizing such basic components of the mechanism as organizational-managerial, institutional, economic, financial, scientific, technical and technological, showed the importance and significance of each separate component, as well as the need for their harmonious joint manifestation for an effective innovative development. The main conditions for the development of innovations in the regions are defined and their relationship with the components of innovative development of the regions is established. The importance of forming a mechanism for innovative development of regions as an effective direction of ensuring competitiveness and economic growth of both the regions and the country as a whole is justified.

Contemporary Issues of Stakeholder Interaction to Ensure Sustainable Development of United Territorial Communities (p. 53 - 57)

The article proves that improving the efficiency of the development and functioning of local self-government, the entire work of the territorial community depends not only on the available resources and potentials, but also on the efficiency of the interaction of the triangle of «business – government – community». It is defined that in the process of activity and development of the united territorial communities, the main groups of stakeholders include the business environment, namely: its owners and official representatives, public organizations, public activists, local self-government bodies, the population of the community, experts, etc. The use of a business model to manage relations with the concerned parties is an important basis for obtaining competitive advantages for the development of territories, subject to cooperation with stakeholders. Thanks to this, there will be a betterment in the socioeconomic condition of the territorial community, an increase in the overall productivity and efficiency of its activities; in general, this will contribute to the stable development of the territorial community. The coherence of the work of the participants of the territorial community, i. e., establishing consensuses and taking into account the interests of each group of stakeholders, will not interfere with the development process, will prevent the emergence of contradictions and will ensure the implementation of the concept of a socioeconomic effective territorial community. Involvement of stakeholders and further interaction with them within terms of the territory development creates the potential for the maximum positive effect of the implementation of strategies, plans and projects. Within the terms of companies, stakeholders have similar directions of action, and they may differ in the composition of groups and their main activities. The basis is the interest shown by stakeholders in the process of territory development. To do this, one needs to create a model that will take into account their interaction and interests. The developments of the International Association for Public Participation (IAR2) will allow to identify these aspects and adjust them.

Regional Features of Startups Ecosystem Development: The Entrepreneurial Aspect (p. 58 - 63)

The article provides the definitions of the concept of both a startup and a startups ecosystem, on the basis of many analyzed scientific works of both domestic and foreign scholars. It is proved that the startups ecosystem is understood as a network that unites various subjects of the innovation process (universities, venture capital companies, marketers, entrepreneurs, audit and consulting agencies, etc.) that interact with each other on the basis of certain agreed «rules of the game». The overall startups ecosystem is taken for an example, being represented by four levels (global (international); national; regional; local). Each of the individual levels creates conditions for the development and successful functioning of startups. The publication presents in more detail the totality of participants in the local startups ecosystem, where it is determined that universities play a rather important role in the processes of formation of innovation ecosystems. The model of the innovation ecosystem of the university is represented by scientific research units, such as the research department, research institute, research sector, which include both the units in which research is carried out (scientific departments, laboratories, centers) and scientific and auxiliary structures (departments of scientific and technical information, research support, financial planning, and personnel). During the formation of an innovation ecosystem of the university, it is important to carry out the process of commercialization of innovative ideas. The importance of developing a startups ecosystem in entrepreneurship is proven. The State authorities are obliged to support, stimulate and encourage the development of entrepreneurship both in the country in general and in its regions in particular. The main programs of development and support of entrepreneurial activity at the regional level are analyzed. It is proved that supporting entrepreneurship in Ukraine by creating a favorable climate for the development of entrepreneurship, identifying all the components that stimulate the formation, attraction of new and expansion of existing small and medium-sized businesses is one of the main directions of implementation of the policy of economic development of the State and its regions.

The Mechanism of Functioning of the State-Regulated Regional Heat Energy Markets (p. 64 - 73)

The article is aimed at studying the current mechanism of the State regulation in the field of heat supply, identifying directions for its reform and developing proposals as to the formation of regional heat energy markets. To achieve this aim, the existing procedure for regulating economic activity in the field of heat supply, the mechanisms of functioning of electricity and natural gas markets are analyzed, the principles of functioning of regional heat energy markets are formulated. The study analyzes the content of the concept of «energy carriers market» (on the example of electric and heat energy and natural gas), as well as the basic principles of the functioning of national and regional markets of heat energy carriers. The current mechanism of the State regulation of economic activity in the field of heat supply and natural gas and electricity markets is examined. The direction of improving the regulation of economic activity in the field of heat supply is substantiated – further decentralization of managerial functions and concentration of powers at the level of local communities; creation of regional heat energy markets, which should be in the operational and strategic management of local self-government. The composition of instruments of the State regulation of the regional heat energy market is proposed. The result of the study is the development of proposals for the classification and composition of such groups of the State regulation instruments: regulatory (licensing, establishment of mandatory rules of economic activity, approval of standard forms of contracts, etc.), tariff (approval of the methodology for substantiating the level of tariffs), financial (provision of preferential economic conditions), and monitoring. Prospects for further research on this topic are: development of a model of the regional heat energy market along with a road-map for its construction; development of methodological provision necessary for the functioning of the regional heat energy market; substantiation of directions for improving domestic legislation on the regulation of economic activity in the field of heat supply.

Organizational Changes in the System of Regional Development Management (p. 121 - 128)

The authors have proved that the problem of reforming the administrative-territorial structure in Ukraine is moving from the level of staging and discussion to the practical plane of implementation. A particularly influential impetus to the acceleration of these changes was given by the process of creating amalgamated territorial communities (ATCs) in Ukraine. Currently, the next stage of reforming local self-government is taking place in Ukraine, which is the consolidation of districts. In the process of formation of new districts, it is proposed to use information on the development of ATCs and take into account the EU experience in this area, which in the future will lead to an increase in the efficiency of the use of available resources along with the improving of the standard of living of the population against the background of betterment of the ecological situation in the region. The study substantiates proposals for applying a process approach to the consolidation of districts. The advantages of implementing these proposals include: consistency with EU structures in the field of district management; the possibility of implementing the conception of «RURBAN»; ensuring sustainable development of the region; increasing the importance of ATCs in the process of territorial management, etc. Success in development depends not only on the starting potential, but also on the mechanisms of development management, one of which can be considered the mechanism of «balancing resources, directions, tasks and methods of development management». The implementation of measures of suburbanization (the process of growth and development of the suburban zone of large cities, as a result of which urban agglomerations are formed) will ensure long-term economic growth of the regions, improve the standard of living of the population and achieve other strategic goals. In the suburban area, the «middle class» of the population should appear and grow. And for this it is important to organize and support the transfer «out of town» of industries, housing, infrastructure, organize eco-protection of systems, create a suburbanization economic space, cultural, tourist and recreational space, developed and high-quality infrastructure for life support of the population and transport links.

A Balanced Development of the Region’s Infrastructure (p. 128 - 133)

The article is concerned with a study of problems and directions of development of the infrastructure of the regions. Based on the generalization of theoretical developments on regional policy issues, the features of a balanced development of the region’s infrastructure have been determined. The definitions of the terms «sustainable development», «infrastructure», «regional infrastructure» are presented. Ensuring the integrated development of the infrastructure of the territories and improving the living conditions of the population is the main goal of improving the economic mechanism for managing the development of the region. The main functions of the conception of improving the quality of life of the population are determined: it has been identified what essential functions determine the place of regional infrastructure in the system of market relations. The study indicates that the balanced development of the region’s infrastructure should be aimed at ensuring domestic and foreign economic relations of the region. It is defined that the effect of an innovation-oriented strategy for balanced development of the region’s infrastructure depends on the optimal spatial and targeted allocation of regional resources, the level of their concentration in a certain territory, as well as on the content of the innovation activity per se. The article also points out that the economic essence of regional infrastructure is the savings that are obtained through the concentration of auxiliary production during the construction period and during the operation of the main production enterprises. It is also determined that regional infrastructure is of particular importance for encouraging small and medium-sized businesses. As result of the study, it is established that the effect of an innovation-oriented strategy for balanced development of the region’s infrastructure depends on the optimal spatial and targeted allocation of regional resources, the level of their concentration in a certain territory, as well as on the content of the innovation activity per se.

The Ways to Increase the Effectiveness of the Economic Entities of the Region in the Context of their Resource Provision (p. 133 - 141)

The article, on the basis of theoretical and methodological research, analyzes ways to improve the effectiveness of economic entities in the region. A conceptual model for improving the effectiveness of economic entities from the standpoint of obtaining an economic and social effect is developed. The conceptual and categorical apparatus of the regional economy and the economy of enterprises has been improved by introducing the concept of «the level of adaptation of economic entities in the region to the external (exogenous) environment». It is proposed to introduce a comprehensive indicator «the level of adaptation of economic entities in the region to the external (exogenous) environment», which is recommended to be considered in the aggregate of such components as: the level of adaptation of staff to changes; motivation of economic entities to introduce innovative and technological changes; creation of an information space for economic entities; the possibility (technical) of the transition of economic entities to a new level of management; prospects for the availability and effective use of the resource potential of an economic entity. It is concluded that the effectiveness and efficiency of the activities of economic entities in the region are somewhat different from each other: effectiveness is an aggregate and generalizing indicator, and efficiency is its component. In the activities of economic entities, an important condition for their further functioning is the fulfillment of the condition when the results of economic activity (profit) exceed costs (then a positive effect arises) and vice versa (negative effect). The key to improving the effectiveness of economic entities is the availability, reproduction and rational (effective) use of the resource and raw material base and the potential of these entities. The available or reproduced potential of the region’s resource provision allows for implementation of a predictive scenario, that is, to assess further socioeconomic development. The potential of resource provision in the region will make it possible to achieve commodity and food security and introduce the principles of import substitution, and thanks to the capabilities of the socioeconomic system (region) to transform resources into finished goods and products – to fulfill an integration into the global space.

The Conceptualization of Ensuring Local Economic Development: Foreign Experience and Possibilities of Its Adaptation for Ukraine (p. 154 - 163)

The purpose of the article is to study the conceptual foundations of local economic development in different countries of the world and provide recommendations on the possibility of adapting foreign experience for Ukraine. The article proposes the author’s own definition of the concept of «ensuring local economic development» from the point of view of a hierarchical approach as a system of public-managerial actions, measures and decisions aimed at increasing economic activity and satisfying local interests. The article explores the conceptual foundations of local economic development in the USA, Canada and Poland. Countries have different priorities, plans and areas of activity in local economic development, but it is common to take into account the economic realities of globalization, the balance of interests of a wide range of all stakeholders and partners, planning, the strategic nature of initiatives and the lack of unification of approaches to local economic development. The policy of ensuring local economic development in the United States in the context of modern challenges is being modernized, along with traditional instruments, novel methods of supporting local economic development appear. And the federal government plays a decisive and unique role in this process, developing policies of various influences on the regions and territories of the country based on their economic realities. Interesting conceptual directions for ensuring local economic development of Canadian territories in the current conditions are the conceptions of economic self-dependence and economic self-sufficiency, which are based on reducing dependence on the State-controlled subsidies, subventions, other economies, etc. The major role in the local economic development plays the Department of Regional and Local Development of Canada and Canadian Regional Development Agencies. Ensuring local economic development in Poland depends on the economic policies pursued by public authorities at the central, regional and local levels. Here it is worth noting a synchronized and proactive approach to the formation of strategic priorities, which includes taking into account the logical, spatial, temporal correspondence of all strategic attributes to achieve overall coherence of development directions at the national, regional and local levels, as well as significant support and financial assistance on the part of the European Union in the implementation of strategic goals of local economic development. Based on foreign experience, Ukraine needs to carry out the transformation of the State regional policy in order to develop and implement programs for the post-war recovery of regional economies. Local governments should focus on developing their own local economic development policy, which would be in line with the State regional policy of post-war recovery.

Development of Clusters as an Instrument for Activation of Intermunicipal Cooperation (p. 80 - 85)

The article reveals the relevance of creating clusters as an infrastructural element of ensuring the local economic development, as well as the use of measures and means in this area in the system of local policy to deepen economic cooperation of territorial communities in Ukraine. The purpose of the study was to improve the methodological and applied basis of intermunicipal cooperation of communities in the field of development of institutional elements of cooperation and cooperation of subjects of the real sector of the economy, in particular production and sales clusters. The advantages of creating cluster structures have been identified both for the community on whose territory they are located and for the community where clusters are not yet created, but these communities can be participants in a cooperation in this area. Obstacles and peculiarities of local economic development management through the creation and expansion of cluster activities are identified. The forms of intermunicipal cooperation in the field of cluster creation are expanded. A structural and organizational hierarchy of cluster creation and development is constructed. The forms of implementation of cooperation between territorial communities in the field of cluster structures development are determined, in particular: 1) development of institutional elements of cooperation at the community level; 2) cross-border development of clusters on the territory of one of the two neighboring communities; 3) interregional development of clusters between communities located in different parts of the region and even the country. The scientific novelty of the study is that the types and forms of interaction of territorial communities in the field of creation and development of cluster structures have been further developed. The applied significance of the research results is that methodological and applied support of regional policy in the field of development of elements of the institutional infrastructure of cooperation and joint development of entities of the real sector of the local economy has been developed.

International Investment Attractiveness of Ukrainian Regions (p. 25 - 32)

The growing volatility of the exogenous and endogenous environment in which economic agents operate causes increased competition for limited investment resources. A further challenge today is the need to stimulate socioeconomic development in Ukraine and strengthen the capacity of its regions to fulfill their social and infrastructural burden in the context of relations with key stakeholders, primarily local communities and businesses. The meaning of key in this context is to set up an adequate system at the micro and macro levels to support the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine’s regions. This situation actualizes the problematics of building an adequately functioning complex of investment attractiveness of the regions. The article is aimed at analyzing the essence of investment attractiveness of regions in the plane of identifying the main drivers of influence on this economic category and forming proposals for its strengthening both on the short and long term time horizon. The article studies the essence of the economic category of «investment attractiveness of region» as a key component of stimulating socioeconomic development. A set of key factors influencing the status and prospective dynamics of investment attractiveness of the region is studied. An analysis of analytical approaches to measuring the investment attractiveness of the region in the context of current challenges for Ukraine and the needs of post-war reconstruction is carried out. Proposals for the development of a complex of investment attractiveness of the regions of Ukraine in the context of post-war reconstruction are formed. The proposed research may be valuable for specialists and researchers in the analyzed sphere, be useful for private and public companies, business associations, international financial institutions, public authorities. A promising direction of future research is to expand the analysis of drivers influencing the state of investment attractiveness in the context of motivations and needs of the main groups of stakeholders.

The Post-War Recovery of the Regions: Assessment and Perspectives (p. 34 - 40)

The article analyzes the peculiarities of determining the losses incurred by the State since the beginning of hostilities on the territory of Ukraine. The main directions in which the most severe damages of infrastructure and housing have been suffered are identified. A regional review of the destruction of infrastructure facilities was conducted, allocating the extent of damages. The degree of damages and destruction in various spheres of life of society is examined. The peculiarities of the destruction assessment in the post-war period are singled out. Priority areas for the post-war recovery of the State are defined. It is noted that the restoration of damaged production or the rebuilding of new production facilities should be based on the principles of Industry 4.0, taking into account digitalization and sustainable development of the regions. The state of migration flows is analyzed, with the regional distribution of internally displaced persons highlighted. The main problems that arise in regions with a large number of internally displaced persons are singled out, the solution of which should be based on the recovery of infrastructure for the return of the population to the regions of permanent residence. It is pointed out that during the wartime it was necessary to change sea routes for the transportation of agricultural products and other goods, which led to an increase in the price of such transportation due to changes in the terms of quotas, contracts, transportation volumes and risks. The author substantiates the emerging need to transport goods through European countries by road and rail, which leads to an increase in the load on the roads of the western regions of the country. It is determined that during the period of military aggression, in order to support Ukraine, European countries took a number of measures to simplify logistics transportation from the territory of our State through bilateral cooperation in the formation of convenient logistics corridors and solving technical and organizational issues. It is concluded that, in general, the recovery of the State should be based on a long-term perspective of sustainable development and integration into the European space, which should be reflected in all spheres of the life of society.

The Peculiarities of Investment and Credit Provision of the Development of Regions in Wartime Conditions (p. 53 - 59)

During wartime, the economic development of the regions is influenced by risks, investment and credit activities turned out to be the most sensitive to threats. The decisive factor in the development of regions has become the security factor, that is, dependence on the spatial location of the region. In such circumstances, uncertainty about the future increases, which changes the behavior of economic actors and increases irrationality of the economy as such. The article is aimed at identifying the peculiarities and risks of investment and credit provision of the development of regions in wartime conditions. The study revealed the negative impact of the war: on the investment activity of business entities, the ability of businesses in regions that were not directly involved in the military conflict to recover quickly, which was reflected in the growth of loans, deposits of the corporate sector of the Western and Central regions; on public confidence in the banking system, which was manifested in the growth of bank deposits of the population. In the wartime circumstances, the role of the State in ensuring and stimulating credit and investment development of the regions increased, which was manifested in the rapid growth in all regions of loans issued under the government program «Affordable Loans 5-7-9», the introduction of loan repayment holidays to solve the problem of non-performing loans and others. A number of risks and challenges for the banking system during wartime is identified, among which are the following: because of the temporary occupation of the territory, the share of non-performing loans has sharply increased; investor’s conduct became more moderate, which was manifested in a sharp decline in investment loans; the need to ensure the availability of the bank in the digitalized space has increased; the requirements for ensuring a quick response to current events, the provision of new types of services, etc. have increased. It is concluded that the stability of the economic system depends primarily on what is done before the crisis, and not during crisis or thereafter.

A Methodical Approach to Defining a System of Objectives and Assessing the Level of Sustainable Development of Regions (p. 59 - 66)

The relevance of the article lies in the need to conduct research on improving the scientific and methodological support for sustainable development, since sustainable development is considered the most promising ideology of the XXI century and an objective necessity for further development of society. The article is aimed at developing scientific and methodological recommendations for defining the system of objectives of the strategy of sustainable development of regions and assessing its level by using graph theory and utility theory. To achieve this aim, the following tasks are solved: an analysis of the theoretical foundations of sustainable development is carried out; the global (main) objective and sub-objectives of sustainable development of regions are defined; factors of influence and criteria – indicators of sustainable development of regions are determined; a tree of objectives (graph) of sustainable development of regions is built; a multi-criteria model of integral estimation of regional development on the basis of program-target approach, graph theory and utility theory is developed. According to the concept of Management by Objectives, as well as the objectives of sustainable development of society for the period up to 2030 and analysis of publications, the objectives of sustainable development of regions are defined. The global (main) objective of regional development is formulated as «Achieving a sustainable development of region». The assessment of the level of development of regions should be carried out in three areas, namely: economic, social and ecological. Then the sub-objectives of the global objective are: «achieving a sustainable development of the region’s economy»; «achieving a sustainable development of the social sphere of the region»; «improving the level of ecological safety of the region». The tree of sustainable development objectives of regions represents a graph, the vertices (nodes) of which are objectives, and the edges (arcs) are the connections between them. A system of criteria-indicators characterizing achievement of set objectives has been formulated. As a criterion for achieving the objective, it is proposed to use the multi-criteria utility function. The carried out analysis shows that for the integral assessment of sustainable development of regions, it is advisable to use the additive utility function, which gives a quantitative assessment of the level of development of regions. Some further research require the methods of identifying the influence of factors on achieving objectives, identifying alternatives to sustainable development of regions, the problem of improving the management of sustainable development. Additional scientific and practical interest is caused by an in-depth study of objectives, their advantages and replacement.

Proposals as to Legislative Support on the Directions of Spatial Development of the Territorial Communities of Various Types in Ukraine (p. 81 - 87)

The reform of local self-government in Ukraine has created conditions for the effective operation of all territorial entities related to local development. Its practical implementation is aimed at the use by territorial communities of: various types of their own potential for development, search for opportunities for cooperation, development of local economy and infrastructure, creation of incentives for socioeconomic growth; instruments for long-term and short-term planning, when the general goals defined in the strategy are specified in programs and implemented through projects; conditions for obtaining high-quality services of European level; providing opportunities for the full-fledged life of citizens in their territories. At the present stage of implementation of the decentralization reform in Ukraine, the request for the formation, in accordance with European principles and values of conceptual provisions for determining the directions of spatial development, of territorial communities of various types is more relevant than ever, which, in turn, actualizes and makes promising the need to update the legislative framework regulating these issues. A wide range of developments and the urgent expediency of forming and improving the legislative framework for use in public administration of territorial development (in particular, in the context of overcoming the consequences of military aggression against Ukraine) determines the relevance of further development and implementation in Ukraine of an effective system of regulatory and legal support for the formation of directions of spatial development, its stimulation, development of strategies, solving existing socioeconomic problems, using certain management and development tools, including through the introduction of an expanded and multi-level classification of regions, territorial communities, etc.

Innovative Transformation of the Economy of Ukrainian Regions: The Pre-War Retrospective and Post-War Priorities (p. 42 - 50)

The article reveals the content of innovation processes in the 1990s and early 2000s, which were characterized by a permanent deficit of financing the production and introduction of modern technologies; low efficiency of implementation of the government or regional scientific and technical programs; weakening the relationship between education, science, and production. It is found that in the regional context there is a significant gap between the largest and smallest number of innovation-active industrial enterprises, owing to the peculiarities of the inter-regional division of labor, the level of scientific and technical potential, the level of concentration of industrial and financial capital. It is identified that the negative impact on the dynamics of financing innovation activity in industry has led to the lack of a modern institutional environment for attracting funds from domestic and foreign investors in the development of innovative infrastructure of industrial enterprises, as well as in new types of product and process innovations. It is substantiated that the processes of innovative transformation of both the national economy and economy of regions of Ukraine are slow due to the lack at the regional level of a modern system of regulatory influence on innovation processes, which would stimulate the development of innovation infrastructure and comprehensive modernization and reconstruction of the fixed capital of the structure-forming units of regional economic complexes. It is proved that the formation of priorities for innovative transformation of regional economic complexes in the wartime and post-war conditions should be based on the need to strengthen the country’s defense capability by increasing the production of weapons and military equipment. Studies have shown that the post-war recovery of the national economy and the economy of Ukraine’s regions should also be accompanied by innovative transformations in the sphere of rational use of natural resources and environmental protection, which will allow attracting funds from global ecological funds and foreign governments for the purposes of modernization of the national economic complex.

The Cascade-Circular Model of Innovative Transformation of Regional Economic Complexes: Fundamental Principles, Priorities, the Wartime and Post-War Challenges (p. 65 - 72)

It is substantiated that the cascade-circular model of innovative transformation of regional economic complexes should be based on a combination of the cascade principle of attracting material resources in the reproduction process and the principle of maximizing closed cycles in product chains. It is determined that the cascade principle is a sequential transition from one phase of production to another, based on the priority of formation of value chains and features of extracting the resource value of primary and secondary raw materials; the principle of maximizing closed cycles in product chains is a principle that provides for the minimization of unit costs and losses of the material substance of raw materials on the basis of the integrated use of primary raw materials through the use of waste-free and low-waste technologies and the most complete utilization of secondary raw materials in order to maximize the value added in food chains. It is identified that the key point in the formation of the cascade-circular model of innovative transformation of regional economic complexes is the formation of the structure-establishing innovation core (a complex of types of production and economic activity with appropriate supporting subsystems), which will be differentiated in the context of economic regions of Ukraine, based on: the existing production and technical base of material production; the level of infrastructural arrangement; available and projected reserves of natural raw materials; scientific and scientific-technical potential; opportunities for establishing inter-regional cooperative relations; participation of the region in the national division of labor and in ensuring national security. It is substantiated that the cascade-circular model of innovative transformation of the economy of the regions of Ukraine should be aimed at more effective use of secondary material resources in the reproduction process and at increasing the assimilation potential as a basic prerequisite for the transition to the rails of low-carbon development.

The Theoretical and Methodological Principles of Structural Changes in the Domestic Market (p. 72 - 78)

The article emphasizes the relevance of the formation and implementation of the State policy of ensuring structural changes and institutional reforms in the internal market. The aim of the study is to scientifically substantiate the methodological and applied principles of structural changes in the internal market. On the basis of the carried out analysis of the current results of researches in the field of conceptual foundations of structural changes, reforms of transformations, institutionalism, structural policy, etc., the directions (components, criteria for analysis) of generalization of the theoretical and methodological principles of structural changes are defined and, as shown, they include the following: structure of the economy by types of economic activity; full-fledged institutional environment and institutional transformations; effective changes in reproductive processes; balance of proportions between sectors of the regional economy; innovation and technological activity and its contribution to the competitiveness of the regional economy. It is concluded that within the framework of the product and sectoral approaches, structural reforms are manifested in the formation of a rational and effective production and sectoral structure of the regional economy. It is proved that, according to the institutional approach, structural reforms are based on the quality of the institutional-organizational and institutional-legal environment of economic management. It is stated that with account of changes in the reproduction processes, structural reforms are characterized by the quality and dynamics of reproduction processes in terms of resource provision and material production, also by the ratios between savings, investments, and consumption. It is confirmed that, according to the sectoral approach, structural reforms are characterized by the formation of rational correlations among the forms of ownership, organizational and legal forms of management, size of enterprises, spheres of the enterprise activity, etc. It is identified that according to the innovation-technological approach, structural reforms are determined by the volume, intensity, progressiveness and efficiency of innovation-technological modernization of enterprises.

Risks of Spatial Development of Territorial Communities and Ways of their Leveling (p. 78 - 85)

The processes of decentralization have necessitated the spatial development of territorial communities for the most efficient use of their resources, ensuring comfortable conditions for the livelihood of the population and the functioning of business. However, russia’s full-scale military aggression against Ukraine has significantly exacerbated the problems of spatial development, increased social, economic, security, and ecological threats. The article is aimed at characterizing the risks of spatial development of territorial communities caused by the russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, and identifying ways to level them. The paper characterizes the factors of spatial development, based on their essence and impact on the socioeconomic development of the territory; a grouping of risks to the spatial development of communities, in particular those caused by the full-scale russia’s war on Ukraine, is carried out. The risks of spatial development of territorial communities in the context of each group are critically assessed – institutional, demographic, economic (business activity and employment), ecological, and security. Attention is focused on measures taken at both the State and regional levels to neutralize threats and risks that impede the spatial development of territorial communities (in particular, programs to promote the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, employment and socialization of internally displaced persons, security in social institutions, etc.). Measures to support the spatial development of territorial communities, which are provided by international donors (in particular, regarding the development of comprehensive plans for the spatial development of territorial communities), are characterized. It is recommended to strengthen the activities of local self-government bodies aimed at ensuring spatial development through the development of a clear architecture of interrelated strategic, planning and program documents, the intensification of measures to support small business in the community, the economic and social integration of IDPs in the community, and so on.

Assessing the State and Modeling of Prospects for the Development of the Financial Capacity of Territorial Communities (p. 85 - 92)

The aim of the article is to assess the state of financial capacity of territorial communities of the Zhytomyr region and to model the prospects for their development, taking into account the established trends. It is substantiated that in order to achieve the effective functioning and development of territorial communities, all efforts should be aimed at the development of internal potential, the optimal use of mechanisms for the formation of the revenue side of local budgets and the rational use of the formed financial resources. It is found that the execution of local budgets of territorial communities of the Zhytomyr region in terms of key indicators indicates an unstable situation that characterizes the average trends in Ukraine, which is explained by the high concentration of production and service enterprises in the central regions of Ukraine (including in the Zhytomyr region), whose tax payments provide the lion’s share of all revenues to local budgets. It is identified that within the boundaries of the Zhytomyr region, communities with a population of up to 10 thousand people demonstrate the best results of economic management. In particular, it is found that the communities comprising from 5 to 10 thousand persons have the highest variability of the results obtained, which can be explained by their high flexibility and dependence on the quality of management. It is proved that the least effective and most vulnerable were large communities with a population of more than 15 thousand people. According to all of the above indicators, they were worse than the regional average, and there was not a single hromada with exemplary results among them. The main criteria for the success of territorial communities are allocated and substantiated, in particular: the optimal number of communities is up to 10 thousand people; effective financial provision, stability and sufficiency of resources; qualified specialists in self-government bodies; high-quality control over the activities of self-government bodies; activity and initiative of the community.

The Features of Institutional Provision of the Territorial Organization of the Economic Management of Ukraine in the Post-War Period (p. 78 - 84)

The article analyzes the structure of institutional provision of the territorial organization of the economic management of Ukraine. The peculiarities of exercising their powers by territorial communities and regional authorities in the context of military aggression are allocated. The regulatory and legal provision for the activities of local self-government bodies under martial law is analyzed. The composition of the institutional provision of the territorial organization of the economic management of Ukraine is studied. The main problems faced by territorial communities in different regions after the russian full-scale invasion are identified. It is determined that during the period of hostilities, the majority of the population of the occupied and frontline regions were forced to temporarily change their place of residence both within the country or go abroad. During the period of hostilities, there was a significant decrease in the level of gross domestic product and sales of industrial products, which negatively affected the economic situation of the State. Such tendencies are explained by the temporary occupation of industrial regions and the destruction of industrial facilities. The activities of national and regional authorities in promoting economic development and social support of the population during active hostilities are studied. It is substantiated that for the full recovery of the destroyed territories, it is necessary to create appropriate conditions at the institutional level, which would contribute to ensuring transparency, openness, and effectiveness of the implemented measures. It is determined that the recovery measures are not being implemented in full due to the security situation in many areas. The main problem is a large amount of mined territory, which poses a threat to the lives of the population, so neither the housing stock nor industrial facilities can be restored in such areas until they are completely de-mined. The general directions of development of institutional provision for the territorial organization of the economic management in the conditions of post-war recovery of the country are allocated. It is substantiated that the attraction of international grants, support of international funds and programs for the development of small and medium-sized enterprises helps to develop such entrepreneurship in the western regions of the country, since internally displaced persons were able to open enterprises there, thereby assisting the region’s economy and providing the social component.

Stimulating the Effective Use of the Economic Potential of Region (p. 95 - 101)

Modern conditions are characterized by intense competition, deep globalization of the world economy and rapid technological progress. In this context, the effective mobilization and use of the economic potential of region becomes a strategic goal to achieve sustainable development and strengthen competitiveness. Stimulating the effective use of the economic potential of region requires an integrated approach, systemic thinking, active participation of government bodies, enterprises and the public. The aim of the study was to determine the directions of stimulating the effective use of the economic potential of region. In the course of the study, an analysis of methods for assessing the economic potential of territories has been carried out and a methodical approach to assessing the economic potential of region has been proposed, which consists in carrying out a comprehensive assessment of the economic potential of the region, taking into account the proposed synergistic combination of economic, human, infrastructural, research, and quality of life potentials. The formed system of indicators of concentration of economic potential and the level of its use in the form of a ratio of the beneficial effect of region to the potential of region will allow to form an analytical basis for the formation of measures to increase the level of economic potential and the efficiency of its use in the regions of Ukraine. According to the results of the carried out study, it is defined that each region has its own potential, the use of which, under certain conditions, can become an additional source of growth of the State’s economy. Ensuring the competitiveness of the national economy requires the creation of conditions for the effective use of the potential of each region. The creation of such conditions requires constant monitoring with a quantitative assessment of the level of concentration of the region’s potential and the effectiveness of its use.

The Theoretical and Practical Recommendations for the Formation of a Methodological Approach to the Choice of Directions for the Spatial Development of the Territories of Ukraine (p. 93 - 102)

The functioning of all territories of Ukraine without exception under the current martial law, which, according to public expectations, should eventually move into the post-war period, makes the need to adjust the directions and priorities of both the State and regional policy, as well as the management of local development in close relationship with each other and with all interested subjects of its development and implementation, urgent. The purpose of this is to correct the consequences caused by hostilities, restore all spheres of life of the country and its territories, and form the necessary basis for further sustainable development. The objectives of the article are to analyze the influence of various factors on the spatial development of territories in the regions of Ukraine in the conditions of martial law and post-war recovery, to develop on this basis theoretical and practical recommendations for the formation of the methodological approach to the choice of directions for the spatial development of territorial communities, in particular in the context of post-war recovery of Ukraine. Given the significant differences in the current state of socioeconomic development of different territorial communities, the first order of priorities is also extraordinary, given the urgent problems, especially those that need to be addressed in the conditions of martial law and in the post-war conditions. The methodological approach allows to form priorities and directions for further development of various types of territories, to establish managerial relationships between the authorities at all levels and territorial entities in the process of effective and rapid recovery of territories and future planning of the country’s development. The practical implementation of this approach will make it possible to attract available opportunities and resources to restore losses and will contribute to the creation of conditions for the socioeconomic development of territories and improving the quality of life of the local population, taking into account European and world experience, technologies, values and priorities, as well as using Ukrainian experience and best practices.

Determinants of Clusterization in the Context of Territorial Innovative Development (p. 103 - 108)

The article is devoted to the study of topical issues of accelerating the innovative development of spatial socioeconomic systems; determining the degree of influence of network forms of organization on the dynamics of economic activity; providing a scientific basis for the formation of centers of innovative growth based on the theory and practice of clustering. A systematization of literary sources on the mentioned issues shows that modern economic science pays insufficient attention to the theory and practice of the influence of cluster forms of organization on the nature and dynamics of innovative development of territorial (regional) systems. The problems of creation and diffusion of innovations are studied from the point of view of the representation and positioning of a separate territory (region) as a subject of economic relations, as a multi-aspect and multifunctional cluster network, which is an indispensable component of the development of territorial innovation systems. Further development, the symbiosis of the theory of regionalism, in particular, the spatial organization of production, with the theory and practice of innovative entrepreneurship, is the substantiation of the feasibility of creating and spreading territorial poles of growth – innovation clusters. The idea of the nature and character of cluster forms of modern territorial organization of innovative activity, being a kind of cluster (network) structure, which is a projection of scientific and industrial-economic systems on a certain territory, has been researched and developed.

Organization of District Heating in Individual Settlements, and Directions of Formation of Regional Heat Markets (p. 109 - 118)

The aim of the article is to study individual settlements from the point of view of organization of their heat supply and to develop on this basis a set of models of regional heat energy markets. The article analyzes a sample of 838 settlements in Ukraine that have centralized heat supply systems. The respective analysis of the sample showed that in the regions of Ukraine there are enterprises of various organizational and legal forms of management, namely: the State-owned and municipal enterprises (including non-profit organizations), business associations, private enterprises and individual entrepreneurs. It is a common phenomenon that the supply of heat energy is carried out by an industrial or energy enterprise, for which this type of activity is not the main one. Different forms of ownership have a certain impact on the organization of relationships between suppliers, local governments and consumers of heat energy. The carried out research allowed to allocate several typical options for the organization of relationships in the field of district heating. It is determined that the organization of these relationships is influenced by the following specific features of an individual settlement and the existing heat supply systems: the number and density of population; provision of the settlement with social facilities; the nature of the predominant buildings; the dimensions of the existing district heating system; presence or absence of mainline and distribution networks for the transportation of heat energy; structure of heat consumption in the context of individual groups of users. The advantages and disadvantages of each of the identified options are analyzed and recommendations for their improvement are elaborated. On this basis, various models of organization of regional heat energy markets and the scope of their use have been proposed. The developed models take into account the specific features of individual settlements and determine the main directions of reforming the relations between suppliers and consumers of heat energy. The implementation of the developed models is aimed at the formation of competitive regional heat markets.
