News / EU supports fashion show in Bosnia and Herzegovina
“Connected through good” is the key message that marked the Banja Luka fashion show entitled #MadeInBiH, organised on 22 September by the European Union in Bosnia and Herzegovina in collaboration with the European Fashion Passport festival.
The event gathered and connected people from the fashion and textile industry who have developed or launched their own businesses in BiH with the support of the European Union. The companies represented came from Kostajnica, Laktaši, Maglaj, Sarajevo, and Zenica.
Through the EU4BusinessRecovery project, the European Union has ensured grants totalling €1.3 million euros for 29 local companies in the textile, clothing, leather and footwear production sector. The fashion show also gathered a number of renowned representatives of the business, academic and international community, as well as representatives from civil society, the arts, culture and sports from Banja Luka and the vicinity.
The European Union’s EU4BusinessRecovery project, which is implemented by the International Labour Organisation in BiH, aims to mitigate the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on agricultural and tourism enterprises, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in the metal and wood processing sector, and in the textile, clothing and footwear sector, as well as on entrepreneurs and farmers.
