Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia.

A takeover deal between Agrokor Croatia’s bigger food and retailer group and Mercator Slovenia’s bigger employer in the same market influences all the area. Since these companies are present in almost all of the old Yugoslav area it is encouraging to see business deal to thrive where politics are years behind such level of cooperation. With 60.000 employees in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia the new company will have a strong impact in the region leading politicians to follow and create entities that could consolidate their future in view of the upcoming European and global competition .
