Reaction to article: Millions are going to import eggs and milk

The newspaper "Dnevne novine" on 28 November 2012 on page 8, published an article titled "Millions are going to import eggs and milk". On that article, we give the following corrections:

  • Import of "Food, drinks and tobacco" from CEFTA countries was 229.4 million euros and not 299.3 million euros as published in the newspaper.
  • Import of "Food, drinks and tobacco" from the European Union countries amounted to 94.7 million euros and represents 6% of total imports of Montenegro and not 33% as reported, because the total imports of Montenegro was 1 544.3 million.
  • 354.9 million euro of "Food, drinks and tobacco" was imported in the first ten months of this year, not nine months as published.
