In his welcome speech which opened this event, the BiH Ambassador in London Branko T. Neskovic highlighted the principal preferential advantages of investing in BiH, from the geopolitical, economic and geographic to cultural and traditional ones. On this occasion, Ambassador Neskovic pointed out that Bosnia and Herzegovina had always been a link between the East and the West, what in the new circumstances it may use to attract foreign investors both from one and from the other side.
In his address, the UK Ambassador in BiH Edward Fergusson said that after his three years spent in BiH he had reason to feel optimistic, since a large number of the UK companies expressed their interest in a form for investing in our country. He said this number would surely grow once the initiated reform processes are completed in BiH, underlining that even better results are expected to be presented at the Western Balkans Forum in London, scheduled for the middle of the next year.
