Yugoslavia: Past and Present (6)

Yugoslavia: Past and Present, edited by Radmila Matic.  Hardcover book published by Yugoslav Review, Belgrade and David Harvey, London (no date, probably late 1960s or early 1970s). Text is in English.

The factory-farms with their large acreage make extensive use of the most modern machinery.  In the picture: Harvest-time on the Belje factory-farm in Baranja.

Yugoslav car production, both independent and in collaboration with foreign firms, is rapidly expanding.  The locally produced Fiat 750, popularly known as the “Fica” stoutly resists the growing competition.  Fica’s are fast, tough, economical to run, easy to park and manoeuvre, well-adapted to Yugoslav highways, are, at the same time, reasonably-priced.

Cargo ships from all over the world call at Yugoslav’s ports.  In the picture: silos near the docks of Split harbour.

The hydro-electric power station at Peruca near Sinj in Dalmatia – one of the forty that have been constructed in the post-war period.

In the post-war period, special attention has been paid to the industrial development of Macedonia.  One of the most important of the republic’s industrial enterprises is the newly-built Skopje Iron and Steel Works, already one of the major centres of ferrous metallurgy in Yugoslavia.
