Groups

The Statute of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Vojvodina and the Rules of Operation of the Agriculture Association’ Committee enable groups to be formed within the Association as a form of operation of all entities that share the same or similar business interests and the need to harmonize mutual relations with other subjects and provide a jointly created economic policy and enable their presence on the market.

Within the Agriculture Association of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Vojvodina, three groups have been formed:

Grape and Wine Producers’ Group

As per the data of the Bureau of Statistics, the total area under vineyards occupies about 5.000 hectares in Vojvodina, mainly wine cultivars. In recent years, high-quality wine varieties are increasingly more represented. Great progress has been made in improving the production technology in viticulture and raising the quality of wines as well as in the production of origin wines. Winemakers’ and vine-growers’ knowledge and engagement do exist; therefore, expansion of areas under vines and increasing the production of wine may be expected.

Joining of vine-growers and winemakers into the CCIV’s Group came from the initiative of a number of distinguished winemakers, who felt that through the chamber system they should jointly create their economic policy and appear on the market.

Through the chamber system, the interests of the Grape and Wine Group members will be jointly represented and protected by state authorities, local government bodies and other institutions of the system.

Within the chamber system, the Group of Grape and Wine Producers will be involved in public hearings during the procedure of law-making and passing corresponding regulations that refer to the position of grape and wine producers.

Within the activity of the chamber system as a whole, the Agriculture Association will, in cooperation with the Grape and Wine Producers’ Group, analyze the economic policy measures and be involved in proposing up-to-date measures for improving the business operations of grape and wine producers.

Through various types of activities (consultations, seminars, education, fairs, etc.), the Agriculture Association of the CCIV will provide an organization service to the members to the Grape and Wine Producers’ Group.
The aim of the CCIV in the Association of Vojvodina winemakers is to promote this promising economic branch via the Group.

Organic Production Group

In the AP Vojvodina, the total area of land under organic production is 7,706 hectares. In the organic production structure, 1/3 of the total area is made up of cereals, followed by orchards amounting to 1/4 of the total area and industrial crops, while vegetable growing has the lowest share with only 1%. With regard to livestock husbandry, the number of heads is still low.

One of the opportunities of the AP Vojvodina in primary agriculture is traditional production as well as organic production, avoiding GMO organisms. The advantages of this production are multiple because the products of Vojvodina farmers will be in higher demand both on the domestic and foreign markets. The demand for organic products on the EU market is high; therefore, 70% of the total organic food exports from Serbia do target the said market.
Bearing in mind further expansion of the area under organic products and the possibility of entering foreign markets, there was a need for the Organic Production Group to be established within the Agriculture Association.

The Group consists of representatives of companies and producers who are engaged in the production of organic products.

The activities and tasks of the Group are as follows:
– Improvement and harmonization of the Group’s activities;
– Reviewing and proposing views on issues of interest to the Group;
– Reviewing and giving opinions on bills and proposals of laws and other regulations related to this activity in order to improve operations and business;
– Reviewing other issues of relevance to the work of the Group.

Livestock and Farming Group

Animal husbandry represents the most intensive branch of agricultural production, significant in many ways for both producers and consumers. This production is the basis of increasing the intensity of agricultural production and its development provides the basis for the construction of a wide range of processing capacities. The basis for the development of livestock breeding is crop farming and livestock production, as a higher stage of production, is also the driver of the development in crop production as well as in total agricultural production. By establishing the Livestock and Farming Group of the CCIV, an opportunity has been created for pin-pointing and possibly solving the problems in this very important branch of agriculture.

The activities and tasks of the Group are as follows:
– Improvement and harmonization of the Group’s activities;
– Reviewing and proposing views on issues of interest for the Group;
– Reviewing and giving opinion on bills and proposals of laws and other regulations related to this activity in order to improve operations and business;
– Reviewing other issues of relevance to the work of the Group.
