CEFTA nations meet on Friday

AGRICULTURAL ministers from the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) countries are due to meet on Friday in Maribor, North Slovenia. Romania will join the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland for the first time.

Liberalisation of farm trade between CEFTA member countries is said to have gone more slowly than that of tariff reductions for industrial products.
