Abstract: This paper analyses the Slovak import and export of selected agro-food commodities with respect to their territorial structure changes within the period 1996 and 2005 . The territorial trade groupings observed in the study were as follows: EU-15, the New Member states, the candidate countries (Romania, Bulgaria), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the USA and the rest of world (ROW). The paper shows that dynamic panel data models are appropriate tools for modelling of agricultural trade flows. Positive effect of the Slovak Republic accession to the EU on agro-food export flows to the EU-15 and other territorial groupings is indicated, while the Slovak agro-food imports show lower growth dynamic. It follows that agricultural and food processing sectors in Slovakia benefited from the gradual liberalization of the agro-food trade related to the EU enlargement.
