SARAJEVO, Bosnia (January 30,2008) – After three-hour blockade of state border crossing of Orasje, the Bosnian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations met the demands of the Bosnian farmers and passed decision according to which customs tariffs on obligatory purchase of livestock will be implemented.

The President of the Bosnian Association of Farmers Miro Pejic stated that this is a victory of agricultural producers in Bosnia and a hit to the import lobby, for this decision obliges domestic food producers to purchase livestock and meat from the Bosnian producers. That will positively reflect the agricultural production.

Jerko Ivankovic Lijanovic, the President of the Bosnian Parliamentary Assembly’s Board for Agriculture at the Commission for Foreign Trade and Customs supported the farmers.
