BLACE, Macedonia (Reuters) - Macedonian truck drivers blocked the main border crossing with Kosovo on Tuesday in a deepening trade row between the Balkan neighbors that is hurting Macedonian producers in one of their biggest markets.
The blockade followed a decision by Kosovo on Monday to ban the import of all Macedonian goods. Macedonia last year exported products worth $392 million to Kosovo, mainly cement, medicine, oil, steel, beverages, fruit and vegetables.
