Abstract

Serbia has natural, human and economic resources in the primary production and the dairy industry, but they are not used in the right way that would lead to economic satisfaction of all market participants, especially producers and consumers. The paper focuses on under-developed competition policy on the milk market in the Republic of Serbia. Particularly noteworthy is the need for state to participate actively in order to correct market failure and increase production, consumption and exports of milk and dairy products.
