“I am glad that there is interest in improving the innovation of the economy of Bosnia and Herzegovina and neighboring Serbia. Compared to the more developed countries of the world,we have a low level of investment in knowledge and innovation. The main role should be played by private, not state investments. The domestic economy is important, ie the attitudes of our businessmen. This kind of events are extremely important in order to exchange experiences and present best practices, “said Admir Cavalic, an economic expert.
“Sustainable investment in infrastructure and innovation is a key initiator of economic growth and development. Promoting sustainable industries and investing in scientific research and innovation are important ways to encourage the sustainable development of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia,” said Almin Malisevic, on behalf of the project “Enhance” .
