The rural areas along the Ukrainian-Romanian borderline, by the activation of Euro-regional cooperation, receive incentives to overcome their depression and to stimulate sustainable social and economic development. The present paper studies the features of the rural development of Chernivtsi and Ivano-Frankivsk regions and the main directions of their development in the context of Euro- regional cooperation intensification. The analysis of these areas has been made using indicators such as gross regional product (GRP) per capita, share of agriculture in the gross value added at regional and country level, share of agricultural products sales in the structure of cash income of households, share of agricultural products in the commodity structure of exports and imports of the regions. Such analysis makes it possible to reveal not only the available resource potential, but also the main negative trends in their development, mainly depopulation of settlements and human capital degradation. The authors have described the current situation of cross-border cooperation in the Ukrainian-Romanian borderline, taking into account the results of the expert survey of local authorities on cross-border cooperation. The promising areas of rural development in the framework of activating the Euro-regional cooperation in the next programming period of 2014–2020 have been outlined.
