We have a variety of products, from spices, different masalas, chilli sauces, rice vinegars.
We need a SE Asia restaurant.

Also people here post surreal values, average wage is 600€, flat in the centre is 2000€/m2, 1km from there around 1500€/m2 and prices go as low as 500€/m2 for some flats in bad and unpopular neighbourhoods.

I am really interested in exporting/importing to/from Bosnia. What do you have for south east Asia market or what do you need from SE-Asia?
#Osman on Jun 07, 2014 :
Increadibly cheap. I have been living here for more than a year and seen that the life is easy and have almost everything we need. A family of four can live comfortably on 1300 euro. But you might miss your local cuisine since Bosnia has very little penetration to foreign food. Organise someone to send over your local spices and etc if you are going to stay for long periods. It is only turkish and italian cuisine easily available. Rent is cheap but some people charge foreigners double and even triple. www.pik.ba is a good website to have an idea about rents in sarajevo.
