Statement by Commissioner Johannes Hahn on the Reform Agenda in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Johannes Hahn

I very much regret the postponement of the Roundtable foreseen for tomorrow 11 June in Sarajevo as a result of which I had to cancel my visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina. I urge all political and institutional leaders of Bosnia and Herzegovina at all levels to do their utmost in order to finalise and start implementing the Reform Agenda that this country so urgently needs to prosper and to move closer to the EU. 
In this regard, I call on all Bosnia and Herzegovina authorities to stand by their commitments, including to the European Union but most importantly towards their citizens. The country faces serious socio-economic challenges which require swift and bold decisions and actions putting the interest, stability and prosperity of the country and its citizens beyond party interests.
