The Foreign Investment Promotion Agency (FIPA) organized on June 1st, 2015 in Sarajevo the event called “The selection of the most significant investor in B&H in 2014”, traditionally organized for a number of years now.
Given the importance of foreign investments for a country’s economic development, the reduction of the unemployment rate and the foreign trade deficit, the introduction of new technologies and ways of management, and to improve the competitiveness of the BH economy, the FIPA organizes this event with the aim of giving acknowledgment to foreign companies whose investments were the most significant in the previous year.
This year as well, the prizes were awarded in four categories:
-the most significant “greenfield” investment;
-the most significant investment made through acquisition/privatization;
-the most significant investment thanks to which the largest number of workplaces was created;
-the most significant investment through joint ventures
