Our plan for development of the municipality that we adopted and started implementing in late 2012, has been fruitful. In the past 3 years, together with businessmen and citizens of Visoko, we managed to make a turn in resolving the problem of opening of new workplaces, which is the biggest problem in the municipality and the whole country at the moment. Visoko has always been economic, industrial and trade center. We want to give Visoko former glory and I believe that we are on the right track,” said the Mayor of Visoko, Amra Babic.

Visoko, Company D&U Ltd. Visoko, “Koteks” Ltd. Visoko, PJ Visoko and “Sinerga” Ltd Visoko.

“We had a couple of strategically directed activities in 2014 and 2015 that have a direct impact on this result. We joined the GOLD project of USAID, realized the project of implementation of the Regulatory reform and simplification of administrative procedures, as well as a number of projects aimed at improving agricultural production, especially the production of raspberries and strawberries. All of this had a direct impact on growth of the number of employees in this period. We see the further opportunity to develop and increase the number of workplaces in leather, textile, food and food production industry, as well as in the tourism sector and development of trade,” said Mayor Babic.
