Izetbegovic invites Vucic to Sarajevo

SARAJEVO - Chairman of the Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) Presidency Bakir Izetbegovic told Tanjug on Monday that he has already invited Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic to participate in the 5th international investment conference Sarajevo Business Forum, set to take place on May 14-15 in Sarajevo.

Izetbegovic said that he hopes that Vucic will accept the invitation, as it would be a good opportunity to discuss promotion of economic cooperation and joint projects aimed at economic recovery and development of Serbia and BiH.

"I am certain that through a coordinated approach we can attract significant foreign investments to the region, especially in the fields of energy, infrastructure, agriculture and tourism, and open new markets for our companies abroad,” said the Bosniak member of BiH's tripartite presidency.

Izetbegovic noted that Vucic is aware of the shared opportunities, adding that for that reason he expects BiH to have a good partner in the new prime minister and the government of Serbia, and that, based on mutual respect and shared interests, the two countries will build positive and stable bilateral relations and a common European future in years to come.
