JAHORINA, April 27 /SRNA/ - Srpska President Milorad Dodik officially opened the Jahorina Economic Forum 2017 on Mt Jahorina on Thursday, an event that gathers around 350 participants from Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region.


“Republika Srpska has resources but is not using them adequately and we have to work it out in the best possible way,” Dodik stated at the opening of the prominent conference at the Termag Hotel on Mt Jahorina.

According to him, Republika Srpska has to boost its activities on developing the energy sector, as well as infrastructure and economy as a whole, for the purpose of better and more productive employment and care for the younger generations.

He stressed the need for regional cooperation and stability and asserted that economy was the right path for such a development policy.

Dodik called on the conference participants, experts in economics, to freely express their ideas, and promised that he and his associates will listen carefully to every good idea and try to make sure they come to fruition for the benefit of the whole society.

Goran Racic, the chair of the organisation committee of the Jahorina Economic Forum and head of the Association of Economists SWOT, said that the gathering is a logical continuation of the association’s activities whose aim is to bring together relevant local and international businessmen and experts, as well as representatives of the highest institutions in Republika Srpska and BiH.

“It is our wish to launch dialogue on all issues important for the development of our economy and we are lucky that President Milorad Dodik recognised our idea and gave us support,” said Racic.

The conference will discuss painful topics, too, Racic said, namely, the fact that many young people are leaving the country, i.e. the lack of ambition on the part of the youth staying here. “We should all start working right now,” said Racic.

Participants of the plenary session entitled “Global Economic Trends and Small Economies,” which followed after the opening ceremony, also include Serbian Minister of Economy Goran Knezevic and head of the EU Delegation to BiH and Special Representative, Ambassador Lars-Gunnar Wigemark. They are talking about the ways small economies can adapt to global changes.

The forum is taking place under the auspices of Srpska President Milorad Dodik and is organised by the Association of Economists SWOT. /end/ds
