Bosnian agricultural producers blocked the Bijaca-Metkovic border crossing with Croatia on Tuesday in protest at a delay in the payment of incentives and poor protection of domestic production.
Farmers from Western Herzegovina Canton in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina blocked the border crossing at about 10am, using their machinery. Police said that the industrial action was proceeding without any incidents and was expected to end by 2pm. They urged drivers to use alternative border crossings in the vicinity.
Protesters are demanding urgent payment of incentives for the previous years, changes to the procedure for the granting of incentives, and measures to better protect domestic agricultural production.
