Slovenia Won Time to Implement Agricultural Reform, Says But
Ljubljana, 22 May - The agreement on the liberalisation of trade with agricultural products between Slovenia and the EU, which was reached in Brussels on Monday, means the beginning of different kind of trade, said Slovene Agriculture Ministry State Secretary Franc But. The agreement does not oblige Slovenia to fully liberalise the trade with agricultural products according to the system of 'double zero' (no customs or duties on the border, and no export stimulation) as of 1 July, which is what some other EU candidate countries like Hungary and Estonia will have to do. Slovenia will from that date on use a system of a more favourable regime for certain sensitive agricultural products within the framework of the agreed quotas, said State Secretary But.
