The article analyses the problems of import substitution in Ukraine and features of import substitution policy. Mechanisms of import substitution policy in Ukraine and the concept of "import substitution" are analysed.

The results of import substitution policies are changes in the volume and share of goods produced on the territory of the country, in total domestic consumption, capital and finance, labour and intellectual capital, technologies and know-how, elements of material and technical base, innovative resources, elements of the institutional environment.

Regarding the economic stimulation of import substitution, it should be added that in our country there are practically no economic incentives for the retail network and for the population to be aimed at refusing to purchase imported goods.
