Implementation of an agro-digital cooperation platform for region convergence in the sustainable development process / Zaburanna L.V., Yarmolenko Yu.O. // Ekonomika APK. - 2019. - № 3 - P. 87

The purpose of the article is to study a potential of regions for implementation of an agro-digital cooperation platform for convergence in the sustainable development process. Research methods. The methods of analysis and synthesis, theoretical generalization, abstract and logical method, in particular induction and deduction (for specification of a categorical-conceptual apparatus), cognitive modelling (for determining the main spheres of agro-digital platform and their interaction) were used. For processing of statistical information and economic-mathematical modelling, modern computer software was used. The main hypothesis of the study is that the proposed agro-digital cooperation platform for region convergence should be divided into four conventional spheres, and regions of Ukraine into three conditional clusters. Research results. During the research, the main components, their combined influence and interaction for agro-industrial production at the regional level were identified and analysed. Selected indicators were divided into four separate sustainable development spheres: “resource support”, “production activity”, “social development”, and “environmental status”. Elements of scientific novelty. It was presented the author's concept of agro-digital cooperation, which, in contrast to the existing ones, takes into account peculiarities of interaction in the system of agro-industrial production factors at the regional level and involves formation of four separate sustainable development spheres. Practical significance. Activity of the agro-digital platform will become a basis for increasing a value and image of the brand “Made in Ukraine”, which is not possible without consent of all producers without exception to high standards for product quality and business. Introduction of the agro-digital cooperation platform on one hand enables to expand export markets for domestic agricultural products, and on the other hand to compete successfully on the domestic market with importing companies.
