Bosnia Press Review - December 10, 2012

Agencies are being united, no cuts. Next year will be a year of higher prices. Heavy snowfall caused many problems in Bosnia.



The announced cuts in 48 different entity agencies in Republika Srpska came down only to uniting some of them and transferring employees from one job to another, without decreasing the number of workers or their salaries.


The next year will most likely be the hardest than any other before. Among increase of prices of cigarettes and petrol it is likely that the electricity and water get pricier which would lead to higher prices of food too. Milk, corn and wheat will get more expensive too.


Heavy snowfalls chained most of towns in Bosnia and along with low temperatures caused numerous problems to citizens. Two persons died due to freezing, one from Banja Luka and the other from Celinac. Many went to doctors due to fractures from falling on the icy grounds. Numerous households were left without electricity and water.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
