Croatia Stops Imports of Slovene Manufactured Renault Clios

Novo Mesto/Zagreb, 24 January - Renault Croatia has decided to stop imports of Renault's Clio model from Slovenia, as the vehicles are subject to customs duties beginning from 1 January. According to the free trade agreement between Croatia and the EU, the Clio that is manufactured in Slovenia is not an EU product, while it is also not a Slovene product according to the Slovene-Croatian free trade agreement. As a product without origin, it is subject to duty, so Renault Croatia is to import the car model directly from the EU from now on. The Slovene manufacturer of the French car maker, Revoz, has been taken by surprise by the decision and has already began talks with the Slovene Economics Ministry to change the agreement.
