Bosnia and Croatia to negotiate trade protocol

Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will soon start negotiating about a trade protocol to cushion the effects from Zagreb’s EU entry next year.

Bosnian Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade Dragisa Mekic said the talks about the protocol had been initiated by Croatia, because its EU membership brings a new trade regime, including the payment of duties for some food products exported to the Bosnian market.

According to the Stabilization and Association Agreement dated 1 January 2013 Bosnia and Herzegovina has to cancel the duties for most products imported from the EU. Still the country has the right to keep the duty for imports of milk and dairy and animal products.
