The Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations in the Cabinet of BiH, Staša Košarac, stated that the export of fish from BiH to the Russian Federation is expected soon. He pointed out that all the preconditions for this have been created, which the owners of fishponds in the entire country expect.
The Veterinary Office of BiH, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations, has harmonized the certificate with the Russian Federation, and the export of fish to this important market is expected soon, the Ministry announced.
“According to the existing practice, the process of certification of domestic export companies should follow, within which the arrival of competent Russian inspectors in BiH is expected”, Košarac said.
He stated that the company “Ribnjak Janj” d.o.o. Tropik Ribarstvo from Banja Luka is currently nominated for the export of fish to the Russian Federation, and expressed hope that the number of subcontractors from the Republika Srpska and the Federation of BiH/FBiH will increase.
“We are fully committed to cooperating with the Russian Federation, because the market there is large and important for improving the business of domestic companies. I am convinced that companies from Republika Srpska and FBiH recognize this capacity and that their products will soon be on the Russian market”, Košarac pointed out.
He announced that he would discuss this process with the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to BiH, and that the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations in the Cabinet would continue to work continuously on opening new markets for domestic products in order to protect domestic production./ibna
