This article offers a modern approach to the policy of competitiveness of the national economy at the regional level. Based on the results and experience of domestic and foreign economists the author offers a system of indicators of regional activity and a method for determination of the integrated index of the competitiveness level in the region. This way of calculation makes it possible to carry out the analysis of the regional economic activity dynamics at the tactical (1 year) and strategic (5 years) levels. Three main policies to increase the competitiveness of the region have been proposed: refocus, dualistic, directive. The essence of major policies to increase the competitiveness of the region, its directions and objectives for the national economy have been characterized. The proposals concerning the application of the basic policies of the competitiveness of the region to the appropriate region of Ukraine on the relevant level of its competitiveness have been given.
