In terms of export of steel, the European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker informed Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic two days ago that the proposed EU safeguards for steel imports would not have a significant impact on Serbia, while the EU Enlargement Commissioner, Johannes Hahn said the EU had to protect the market from disproportionate imports of steel, adding that he was confident that a solution would be found for Serbia.
The Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia (RZS) has recently said that the data on the growth of production of raw steel in Serbia of 38.9 percent in the period January-November 2018, published by the World Steel Association, does not correspond to the official data of the RZS. “According to the IND1 Report – Monthly Industry Report, which is received by the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia, and which covers the period January-November 2018 compared to the same period in 2017, the production of basic metals shows a 13.1% growth”, the RZS claims.
