Ambassador Sattler and Bihac University Students Discussed Contribution of Young BiH Expats

Ambassador Johann Sattler, Head of the Delegation of the European Union and Special Representative of the EU in Bosnia and Herzegovina, visited the University of Bihać and discussed with students of the Faculty of Economics the positive role that young people who lived outside of BiH can have in initiating development of the country, should they decide to return.


“Young experts who decided to return to Bosnia and Herzegovina, after gaining education or professional experience abroad, have the potential to play an important role in the economic growth of Bosnia and Herzegovina, bringing new ideas, skills and perspectives. Living and working abroad can be a transformative experience that helps individuals grow both personally and professionally. By returning home, they can bring new knowledge and use it to create positive change in their local communities,” said Ambassador Sattler.


Panel discussion was organised as part of the European Union’s project “Generation Change” focused on students from public universities. The other members of the panel at today’s discussion were Damijan Sedar, Ambassador of Slovenia to BiH, Dijana Vuković, associate professor of Faculty of Economics in Bihać and Dino Kišmić, Founder/CEO of IDK Studio software & web development company.


In the past two months, Ambassador Sattler, together with ambassadors of EU Member States, visited public universities throughout BiH and talked with students about various topics that are important to young people, but also important for the country’s progress towards the European Union. During the past five events held in Zenica, Sarajevo, Tuzla, Mostar and Bihać, the Ambassador met with more than 600 students. The sixth and the last event is planned for late April with the students from the University of Banja Luka.
