Balkan Davos' To Launch İn Sarajevo

Bosnia Herzegovina on Monday will begin hosting a major regional economic conference -- Sarajevo Business Forum (SBF).

Dubbed the "Balkan Davos" after the World Economic Forum, the SBF will focus on expanding regional economic cooperation and attracting international investment to Southeast Europe.

Anadolu Agency is the global communications partner for the two-day event, which launches its eighth iteration this year.

It will set the scene for exchanges between top government officials and key business figures in Bosnia, as well as other countries in the Balkans.

Investors and leaders from Gulf countries, Asia and Europe are also participating.

The forum is becoming more prominent every year, CEO of Bosna Bank International, Amer Bukvic told Anadolu Agency.

"Most of the foreign delegations come with very low expectations because of the very negative image that Bosnia had in the 90s," Bukvic said. "What we are really proud of is that those who do come, they come again and invest."

Bukvic expressed pleasure at the "personal link" the participants form with the region, and stressed the "great potential" of the forum for Turkish companies.

This year the event will focus on building new business alliances, thanks to large-scale participation from India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Turkey.

"Bosnia Herzegovina has become a meeting place. Close to 1,600 people from 30 countries will be attending," said Bukvic.

The Sarajevo Business Forum has been held since 2010 in a collaborative effort by Bosna Bank International and Jeddah-based Islamic Development Bank. -
