With exports totalling 768 mln euros in the first eight months of the year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Serbia retained the number one position in the August 2016 list of Serbia’s top exporters, followed by Tigar Pirot (208.4 mln) and He Steel Smederevo (207.2 mln), the Ministry of Finance said Thursday.

The total exports by the 15 biggest exporters in the period amounted to 2.6 bln euros.

NIS ranks fourth with exports worth 150.7 mln, followed by Philip Morris Operations Nis (149.9 mln), the HIP Petrochemical Complex in Pancevo (136.8 mln), MK Group (116.5 mln), Gorenje Valjevo/Stara Pazova (116.2 mln), Victoria Group (111.1 mln), Tetra Pak Production Belgrade (110 mln) and Yura Corporation Raca (103.3 mln).

Hemofarm Vrsac (100.1 mln), Bosch (94.8 mln), Leoni Prokuplje (94.5 mln) and Jugoimport SDPR Belgrade (84.2 mln) round out the top 15.

The Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications, Rasim Ljajic says that there are no political obstacles any more regarding Fiat’s export to the Russian market under the custom-free regime.

It was Kazakhstan that protested against Fiat exporting their vehicles to the Russian Federation because the country wanted to protect its own automobile industry. Following the official visit of the Kazakhstani delegation to Serbia two months ago, this barrier was partially removed because there is now political will to overcome it – Ljajic adds.
