Sports Goods- Export Hopes Belied

 Boyanich has said highly favourable conditions exist in Yugoslavia for the shareholding system. He has rebutted doctrinaire communists who say that the system of shareholding would mean a restoration of capitalism. Boyanich has stated that "socialist stock is absolutely justified."
