10:01:35 Soundbite by Štefan Füle (in ENGLISH): The Commission proposes a special transit regime for exports from Bosnia and Herzegovina through the Croatian Port of Ploče. Thanks to this special regime, vast majority of export and import of agricultural products of animal origin will continue as before entry of Croatia to the EU. This regime will be applicable from 1 July 2013 until Bosnia and Herzegovina itself meets the EU standards. The list as it will stand on 1 July can be further amended on a case by case basis, based on Bosnia and Herzegovina's evolving trade needs. 00:00:53
