The urgency of solving this scientific problem lies in the fact that for the last 5 years the agrarian sector of Ukraine’s economy is considered as a factor of macroeconomic growth, providing about 20% of GDP and almost 45% of foreign exchange earnings. The research of the distribution of investment resources of the national economy in the article is carried out in the following logical sequence: the indicators of economic development of Ukraine are highlighted, the dynamics of changes in Ukraine ‘s GDP and capital investments are presented, with the help of correlation – regression analysis, the forecasting for 2016-2019 of both indicators is carried out, the profitability of the economic activity of Ukrainian enterprises in terms of branches.

The object of the study was selected – investment processes in the Ukrainian economy, since it they provide innovative and investment development of the economy and its growth. The article presents the results of an empirical analysis of the impact of capital investment on the country’s GDP, which showed that their distribution is non-systemic and requires correction taking into account their resulting impact on more profitable branches and the agrarian sector, in particular. The study empirically confirms and theoretically proves that the innovation and investment development of the Ukrainian economy can be secured by directing investment resources into agricultural production with high added value.
