Serbia and Croatia significantly increase trade
Foreign trade between Serbia and Croatia in the first six months of this year was 35.4 percent higher than in the same period in 2021, said the Serbian Chamber of Commerce (SCC).
The acceleration of the flow of goods at the Batrovci-Bajakovo border crossings, between Serbia and Croatia, as well as the continuation of the implementation of the initiative of the two chambers for establishing control at the Sid-Tovarnik railway border crossing for goods of plant and animal origin will continue to be the focus of the Serbian and Croatian economy in the upcoming period, it was said at the meeting of the president of the SCC Marko Cadez and the president of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (CCC), Luka Burilovic.
It was agreed to hold a meeting of the competent ministries of Serbia and Croatia in the next month and a half in order to establish control of the goods requiring a phytosanitary and veterinary certificate at the Sid-Tovarnik railway border crossing.
The total number of freight vehicles at the Batrovci – Bajakovo border crossing in both directions in 2021 was 378,000, i.e. at the entrance to Serbia there were 226,000 vehicles, and at the exit 151,000 freight vehicles, while last year 5,053 domestic companies realized foreign trade with Croatia.
