According to the explanatory note to the document, the draft law was prepared with the aim of establishing a legislative basis for the formation and activities of associations of Euroregional cooperation, the European associations for territorial cooperation, as well as the introduction of transparent conditions for state support of cross-border cooperation projects.

As the authors of the bill, now the question of cross-border cooperation is regulated by the law "On transborder cooperation", which was adopted in 2004 and needs to be updated and detail.

Also, since the adoption of the law "On transborder cooperation" the European Union has developed legal acts regulating the activities of the European associations for territorial cooperation in which Ukraine can also participate.

Also the problem area is the method and form of state support on transboundary cooperation.

As noted in the explanatory Memorandum, in practice it is often the case when European partners are ready to allocate funds to Finance certain projects or facilities, but the Ukrainian side can not be timely and fully perform its duty to co-financing these projects or objects. Accordingly, such projects are not implemented or their implementation is delayed in time.
