Regional Chamber Conference in Vienna

The main themes of this meeting were "How to improve the business environment of the region" and "How to involve our business community in the Berlin process in order to increase regional prosperity through sustainable economic growth." The meeting was initiated by the president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia and president of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Mijuskovic has said that the meeting in Vienna contributes to the continuity of the talks on regional cooperation, referring to last year's summit of prime ministers of the Western Balkans with German Chancellor Ms Angela Merkel in Berlin.

- At the moment regional cooperation is probably even more important than it was before, given the fact that under European investment framework for the Western Balkans there are funds for projects of regional importance – Mr. Mijuskovic has said.

The President of the CEM has pointed out that the chamber should monitor, initiate and propose priority projects regarding the development of the economy. The meeting in Vienna will result in drafting the action plan which will be presented at the Vienna Summit on August 27, 2015.

Association of Forestry meeting

Results

The information on economic trends in this sector state that the total production of gross wood mass for the period January – September 2014 amounted at 237.816 mand it is for 3.7% higher in comparison to the same period last year. The basic characteristic of trade in this sector is the export of raw materials and semi-products – roundwood and sawnwood, while the export of ready made products is low. The import of the products such as: wood, paper, print and furniture amounted at 82.8 million EUR, while the export was 17.2 million EUR.

- The total export of wood amounted at 13.76 million EUR, while the import amounted at 16.44 million EUR. In the structure of export, sawnwood had the largest share of 8.88 million EUR and raw materials of 4.15 million EUR, which is for 36.2% more in comparison to the period January – August 2013 – these are the data presented by the Board Secretary, Goran Popovic.

Due to the increased export of the best quality raw materials (logs), it has been concluded that it is necessary to respect the agreements on wood concessions and the construction and maintenance of wood traffic, where the contracting parties agree to process the total quantities of cut wood at the concessioner’s processing capacities on the territory of Montenegro.

According to Mr Ranko Kankaras from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the policy of the state is not to export the raw materials but to develop this sector and open new jobs.

- We will not export logs from Montenegro. Pay attention to what you are doing. The state will sanction the exporters of raw materials – Ms Kankaras has warned. He has said that the Government intends to attract big investors in this sector in order to improve the wood industry effects.

The Presiding at the session, Djordje Zivkovic, has said that results in the forestry and wood industry are disappointing and that the concessioners, led by easy money, opt for the export of raw materials.

- We have enough raw materials for the development of the north of Montenegro and for the engagement of capacities and employees who are registered at the Employment Office. We need to promote producers not make merchants of them – Mr Zivkovic has said.

The President of the Vektra Jakic Company, Rajko Dragas, has said that the factory of pellets is about to be opened and that their plants will produce: furniture, wood strip flooring, windows, etc.

- We lack the available quantity of technical wood. We need 100,000 mof logs and, simultaneously, a large quantity of this raw material is exported from Pljevlja. We invite the concessioners to sell this raw material to us – Mr Dragas has said.

Aleksandar Stijovic from the Institute of Forestry has estimated that if Vektra Jakic wants to establish the announced production of pellets, it will use 300,000 mof raw materials, which will significantly reduce its export.

Other participants on this topic were: Vuksan Radonjic, Trudbenik Mojkovac, Djoko Ljeskovic, Sava trans, Rados Sucur and Joveta Terzic from from the Forestry Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Conclusions

In order to create more favourable business climate and improve the situation in these branches of industry, the following proposals have been made:

- The total biomass of 700.997m3, given as concession on one, seven, fifteen and thirty years by the Forestry Department and included in the Forest Management Plan 2014, should be used to its maximum, which creates conditions for the increase in the production volume in the forestry raw material supply chain and wood industry, and thus in the planned total income for 2014 amounting at 7,494,961.57€.

- The concession of woods should be done at the beginning of the year, not in August as it has been the case in the recent years (this year in September), when the season ends. That is why the companies do not work using full capacities in the main season, which along with the objective problems negatively affects business operations and leads the companies into financial blockade and insolvency;

- The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, which is responsible for forestry and wood industry, needs to make a report on the concession of woods for all long-term agreements for the period 2008-2014. The report should contain an analysis for all concessioners of how the HR and technical – technological conditions based on the public call from 2008 have been fulfilled;

- Adopt a new Manual on the Conditions, Criteria, Sub-criteria, related to the technical – technological equipment and the number of employees, which the legal entities need to fulfill in order to obtain the concession rights by departments and household units, for annual and long-term concession of woods reciprocal to the quantity of wood mass. In other words, it is necessary to determine the „maximum volume” of raw materials which can be conceded for processing to an enterprise in relation to its production capacities and the number of employees. This could solve the problem of division of concessions, direct raw materials towards production plants, increase production and use production capacities, cease export of the best quality raw materials, increase employment, etc.

Due to the increased export of the best quality raw materials (logs), we propose the following:

- During the customs procedure as the statement of origin should be accepted only the bill of lading or the certificate from the Forestry Department as the only authorized responsible organ for issuing documents of origin, both for the state and the private forests, with the date of the customs clearance.

- The price at the invoice should state the real value of commodities.

- To act in line with the requirements of the Agreement on Wood Concessions and the construction and maintenance of wood traffic, where the contracting parties agree to process the total quantities of cut wood at the concessioner’s processing capacities on the territory of Montenegro.

- Start the wood certification process by the FSC standards, which confirms that the forestry products have been produced under the responsible management of woods and proves that there has been no uncontrolled exploitation of woods. The certification of woods helps new wood industry to enter the Western market, which requires that the wood originates from certified woods managed following the sustainability principles.

- The Customs Administration should discuss with their colleagues from Serbia that the crossing Ranc near Pljevlja should be open for customs clearance not only on Tuesday and Thursday but all working days.

Information and Rule Book

At the session of the Board related to the problems of the calculation of special compensation, the Government reached conclusions and adopted the Information on the realization of the public call for wood concessions (regular and sanitary cutting) and the status of payment of specific compensations for concessions with the proposed measures

The Board members were informed that the Government has given the task to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to conduct the procedure for the auction sales of wood from the areas damaged by fire at the initial price of 50% of the start price from the first public call for sanitary cutting, as well as to renew the procedure of public call for the departments for which there were no calls at the first tender for the use of woods by regular cutting. One of the conclusions is that the funds to be earned from sanitary cutting (the expected income of 350,000 €) should be directed for the procurement of the necessary wood, reproduction material, and workforce which will be engaged in the afforestation.

Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development made a new Rule Book on the amount of compensation for the marking of trees, measuring and earmarking of wood assortments and the elaboration of the project. By this document, the compensation for the technical coniferous tree has been reduced from 5 to 3.5 € per m3 andfor deciduous trees from 4.5 to 2.5 € per m3.

 

Special compensation for state-owned forests amounts at:

- with regular cutting, 10% of the agreed price of wood on the log by m3 of gross wood mass;

- with sanitary cutting, 5% of the agreed price of wood on the log by m3 of gross wood mass.
