Bosnian, international officials discuss investments in Srebrenica
A conference on potential investment in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica, organized by the Bosnian Serb government, commenced Tuesday at Jahorina mountain near Sarajevo.
Bosnian officials at the highest level, international representatives and businessmen attended the conference to discuss the possibility of restoring Srebrenica’s economy. The economy in the Srebrenica area remains underdeveloped after the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. It was particularly affected by a massacre in the town, where Bosnian Serb troops killed up to 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men after capturing the area on July 11, 1995. “Genocide happened in Srebrenica and that is the issue for the judiciary to work on, while we should focus on the economy,” Bosnian Serb Prime Minister Milorad Dodik said opening the conference.
The goal of the conference, according to international administrator in Bosnia, Slovak Diplomat Miroslav Lajcak, is to identify and promote Srebrenica’s business potential as regards its location, natural resources and infrastructure. Three topics are set to dominate the conference’s agenda: Srebrenica from reconstruction to self-sustainable development; business environment - encouragement for investors; and investing possibilities.
