Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Mirko Sarovic agreed on Wednesday in Ankara, at a meeting with the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Turkey, Bekir Pekdemirli, to continue exporting meat from BiH to this country.
Beef exports will continue until the end of this year and the country will be able to export 3,000 tones of boned meat, thus eliminating the deadlock in the implementation of this arrangement.
Namely, as the Free Trade Agreement between BiH and the Republic of Turkey is still awaiting ratification by the Parliaments, Minister Sarovic requested that exports to this country continue without interruption, so that BiH businessmen would not suffer the consequences of waiting.
Turkey is one of the most important foreign trade partners and the volume of trade between the two countries is 700 million U.S. dollars.
During the meeting, the two ministers discussed the overall trade between the two countries and the long-term arrangements agreed through the Free Trade Agreement.
During his visit to Turkey, Minister Sarovic will also meet with Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan on Thursday.
