KONKURENCNA SCHOPNOST ODVETVIA ZIVOCISNEJ VYROBY VO VYBRANYCH KANDIDATSKYCH KRAJINACH PRED VSTUPOM DO EU

The more liberalized trade, regional trading agreements, and the process of globalization lead countries to adjust their agricultural policies towards more competitive markets. The EU enlargement requires the candidate countries to reform and harmonize their agricultural policies. Livestock sector has noticeable weight in these countries. This study examines the current situation of the livestock sector in the EU candidate countries in some selected products such as meat, milk, cheese, and egg concentrating on the competition power. The export performance index is used to determine the competitiveness of these selected products. Results show that Lithuania has competitiveness in butter, Hungary in poultry, and Bulgaria in sheep and goat meat compared to other candidate countries. Since the EU liberalizes its policies, candidate countries should be cautious about the further support of the livestock sector and should make necessary adjustments towards competitiveness.
