  • Description

    Negotiations between Yugoslavia and the European Economic Community over a trade agreement began in Brussels on Monday (13 February).

    SYNOPSIS: The talks are being held in the EEC Commission's headquarters. Monsieur Pierre Duchateau, on the right, is heading the Common Market's delegation. He is their director general of External Affairs. He greeted Mr. Milovan Markovic, head of the Yugoslavian delegation.

    Both sides were to negotiate a new five-year agreement on trade and economic co-operation. Officials say this is intended to strengthen their relations. It will replace an existing five-year trade agreement that is due to expire later this year.

    The Western industrialised countries are Yugoslavia's main trading partners and the EEC is its most important export market. But Yugoslavia's trade balance with the Community is not healthy. Its trade deficit of almost three and a half billion dollars for the first nine months of 1977 was twice the deficit for the same period of the previous year.

    This is largely because imports are high and Yugoslavia's export trade relies heavily on basic and agricultural products.
