Due to massive increase in prices

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUN 15 - After an emergency session on Wednesday, Bosnia's Council of Ministers unanimously accepted a proposal to temporarily ban the export of certain wood products and firewood, Foreign Trade and Economic Relations Minister Stasa Kosarac said. This measure will be in effect until September 30th, local media reported.

"The ban on the export of roundwood, wood pellets and firewood is being introduced for the simple reason that the price of pellets has increased by 155 percent compared to last year.

Exports increased by 78 percent with a further increase expected. And the price of firewood has increased by nearly 40 percent. For roundwood, the price increased by almost 400 percent and exports rose by nearly five percent," Kosarac said, quoted by the regional television N1. (ANSA).
