BOSNIA and Herzegovina imported five times as much bottled water than it exported in 2010, despite good supplies. It imported bottled water worth KM120 million (EUR61 million) while exports came to KM17.6 million, writes Colin Graham . In 2009, imports of the product amounted to KM127 million against KM18 million in exports. Local industry experts told the daily newspaper, Dnevni Avaz , that a lack of investment in marketing and manufacturing facilities was one of the reasons for the imbalance between imports and exports, despite the fact that Bosnia and Herzegovina has ample natural resources to produce plentiful supplies of mineral water.
