Findings of the research will be known by the end of September, whereas findings of the other research will be presented in the fourth quarter of the year.
Montenegro imports oil and its derivatives for re-exportation too.
"The re-exporting process does not include remaining quantities of regular import but quantities intended for the needs of re-export," explained the representatives of Customs Administration.
Private companies make a profit in this process, and the representatives of Customs Administration of Montenegro also spoke about the price of re-exportation.
"Average price for this year amounts to 0,56 EUR per liter. Re-exportation process refers to the procurement of ships and yachts in international traffic," concluded the representatives of Customs Administration.
