Difficult economic situation in developing countries is a result of a number of factors. Among others, low level of technique and technology, lack of skilled labor force or poor infrastructure. It should be noted, that many of these countries are based on natural economy, with dominating employment in agriculture; consequently, there is very shallow market for industrial goods. Taking into account the role of agriculture in these countries, it is not only industrial development, but mainly agricultural development and modernization that are crucial for making their situation better. Processes of globalization and regional integration, currently observed in the world economy, are favorable conditions for this purpose. The intensification of international trade accompanying these trends strongly influences the level of benefits achieved and the position of each country in the international division of labor. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the developed countries preach the ideas of liberalization of world agricultural trade, in fact they protect the market.
