To improve cooperation with diaspora
Bijeljina Mayor Ljubiša Petrović signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the representative of Organisation “I-platform – Diaspora for development of Bosnia and Herzegovina”, Aldin Vrškić. One of the goals is to make stronger links with diaspora in Switzerland, and to strengthen cooperation between individuals, companies, organisations, and institutions.
The first joint projects should be organisation of “Bijeljina Meet-Up” which will gather people originally from Bijeljina now living in different parts of the world. An idea to form register of diaspora representatives was presented as a long-term plan, with a goal of more prosperous development of Bijeljina and provision of more prosperous life for all citizens.
So far, the representatives of “I-platform” organised meet-ups with emigrants from Kladanj, Živinice, and Zenica, and the first meeting of this type with the diaspora from Bijeljina is planned for the end of this month.
