Abstract

Bosnia and Herzegovina records a slight increase in fruit production in the postwar period, while grants recently introduced in Bosnia and Herzegovina open the possibility of increasing the fruit production to a higher level. The situation in this market also needs to be analyzed in the framework of the signed Stability and Association Agreement (SAA) and Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA). The present fruit production in B&H does not meet the domestic demand and as a result the state is forced to import signifcant quantities of fruits. The question is how to respond to this challenge and how to set up fruit production within the CEFTA countries focusing on fruit export potentials.
