Serbian Trade Minister opposes introduction of countermeasures to Macedonia

Serbian Trade Minister opposes introduction of countermeasures to Macedonia

Belgrade, 4 March 2018 (MIA) - Serbian Trade Minister Rasim Ljajic in regard to the problem of exporting Serbian flour to Macedonia told Serbia’s public broadcaster RTS on Sunday that he opposes introduction of countermeasures to Macedonia, saying it would be bad for both Serbian and Macedonian businessmen.

“Export is not banned, but non-tariff barriers are slowing it down, and our exporters become uncompetitive compared to others. We want an equal treatment according to the rules of the World Trade Organization and CEFTA,” Ljajic said.

He added that he is trying to solve this problem through agreement and compromise.

“We want a completely free flow of goods in both directions. We are ready to remove the barriers and a precondition for all of this is the withdrawal of this rulebook,” he said.

Ljajic said that if the measure is not changed the Serbian millers will make their exports unprofitable and will lose € 200.000 per month. sk/12:18
