dc.description.abstractThis paper analyzes the possible a customs union between and the European Union. TheGTAP multi-country simulation model of Purdue University's Center for Global TradeAnalysis is applied. The welfare measure evaluated is the change in equivalent variation(EV). As all incomes in the model accrue to a representative household, EV fully assessespossible welfare benefits for Ukraine from a bilateral tariff elimination on trade with the EU.As the model includes Ukraine in the aggregated „Former Soviet Union“ region (FSU), EV isestimated for the FSU and then disaggregated on the industry level proportionally to tradeshares. The results of our simulations suggest that Ukraine’s EV is particularly sensitive tothe inclusion of the agricultural sector into a customs union. Due to the highly protectednature of this sector within the EU, Ukraine would be better off if agriculture were excludedfrom liberalization. If this scenario is assumed, Ukraine's monetary gain would be in theorder of $40 million.-
