RCC Secretary General holds talks with Chairman of BiH Council of Ministers
The RCC Secretary General, Hido Biscevic, met today with the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Nikola Spiric, and informed him of the new phase of RCC activities following the initial period of the organization’s profiling as the key driver of regional cooperation in South East Europe (SEE).
Secretary General Biscevic stressed the potential for the region’s development created through the adoption of the Western Balkans Investment Framework at the high-level conference on Western Balkans, organized in Brussels in December 2009 by the Swedish EU Presidency and the European Commission, in cooperation with the RCC. The conference results and the new strategy for the 2011-13 activities of the RCC Secretariat, which is currently being prepared, have motivated Secretary General Biscevic to initiate a new round of consultations with SEE leaders to identify future regional development projects.
In case of Bosnia and Herzegovina, road and railroad infrastructure, energy, agriculture and ICT have been spotted as the areas in which the country could take the best advantage of its geographical position as well as activate its human and economic potential through regional cooperation, at the same time keeping in mind a balanced development of all parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Finally, the RCC Secretary General thanked Chairman Spiric for the continuous support of Bosnia and Herzegovina and its institutions to the work of the RCC during the first two years of its operation.
