The authors substantiate the significance of the cluster approach when creating cross-border units as one of the most effective methods of sustainable development of agricultural production in rural areas of the EAEC countries. The article proves the viability of creating joint ventures by agricultural producers and determines their basic characteristics. Working on the paper, the authors applied traditional methods of research: dialectical (from general to particular), abstract logical, monographic ones, the method of comparative analysis, and expert assessments. The research findings can be used by the government agencies that work in the field of agro-industrial production and implement targeted complex programs for the development of agriculture and regulation of markets of agricultural products, raw materials and food, as well as social development of rural areas.The material presented in the article may be of interest to managers and experts of the agro-industrial complex, scientists, post-graduate students and students exploring the development of international relations and foreign trade.
