Serbian property in Slovenia and Croatia must be protected

Ljubljana, 13 August - The Presidency of the Chamber of Economy of Serbia has demanded from the Federal Executive Council and the Serbian government that they protect Serbian property in Slovenia and Croatia, writes Tanjug. They claim that the situation is worrisome, because this concerns the use of tourist and catering facilities in Slovenia and Croatia, where these facilities are being destroyed, their use is made impossible and threats of confiscation exist because of forthcoming dues or, should we say, terribly high taxes are demanded on property. As the representatives of the service for development at the Chamber of Economy of Slovenia state, the data of the Serbian Chamber are false, at least those concerning Slovenia. These high taxes mostly refer to Croatia, while Slovenia has made no counter measures yet. The Slovenian companies have 204 business units in Serbia, and these have 561 subsidiaries, there are 38 companies in Vojvodina with 195 subsidiaries, and in Kosovo there are another 2 companies with 49 subsidiaries. The data refers to all Slovenian commercial buildings, of this 20 are aimed for tourism and catering.
