The respondents, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, were asked the following question in the survey web form: "Specify the name of the cement producer offering the best price/quality ratio in Bosnia and Herzegovina:"
The questions were open, i.e. the examinees offered no answers; rather, they could freely specify the names of producers and service providers who, in their experience, offer the best price/quality ratio on the market of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The largest number of examinees responded to the question as follows: "Kakanj - Heidelberg".
