EU funding opportunities in Bosnia and Herzegovina | WeBalkans

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Population 3.5 million

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a potential candidate country for European Union membership. The EU is the country’s primary political and economic partner, and its largest donor and investor. Cooperation and financial assistance extends across many fields: agriculture, education, infrastructure, business development and much more. Bosnia and Herzegovina is undertaking ambitious improvements to reach EU standards in areas such as the fight against corruption and organised crime. While challenges remain, the EU is committed to working with Bosnia and Herzegovina to deliver change and improve the quality of life for citizens.
