Economic Forum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is organized 4th year in a row and has so far gathered over 1800 participants, mostly representatives of executive branch of BiH government as well as representatives of regional companies, diplomatic sector and academic community. The central idea of Economic Forum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is establishing a platform that links representatives of business community, academia and economic policymakers, aimed at the promotion of entrepreneurial initiatives and partnership, cultivation of public-private dialogue and presentation of scientific and technological solutions for promoting the sustainable development of our country and region.

This should ultimately result in creating actual proposals and guidelines for creating future economic policies.
