Prime Minister of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Fadil Novalić, met yesterday at the seat of the FBiH Government in Sarajevo with the Head of the World Bank Office for BiH and Montenegro, Christopher Sheldon, announced the Press Service of the FBiH Government.
They discussed the implementation of development and reform projects in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina supported by the World Bank, such as improving the competitiveness of agriculture, improving the health system, energy transition and modernization of water supply.
Prime Minister Novalić thanked the World Bank and emphasized the importance of this international financial institution’s support for FBiH Government projects.
“The World Bank is an important partner of ours and we have cooperated very well since the beginning of this government’s mandate. I am glad that the cooperation continues and that we are going to implement the approved projects that will mean additional support for the development of the Federation,” said Prime Minister Novalić.
The Head of the World Bank Office in our country thanked the FBiH Prime Minister and the Government for the cooperation that resulted, as he stated, in significant progress in a very short period.
“We have good news. The budget support for the health sector for 100 million dollars is on the agenda of our committee on Monday. Of that, 60 million will belong to the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We will also ratify three projects concerning health, agriculture and water supply soon. We informed the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the FBiH Parliament about the status of these projects that will be voted on very soon, as well as the employment support project. I want to thank you for your cooperation because we have done a lot in a short time. That’s five or six new projects and we are preparing as many more for the next two years,” said Sheldon.
