The main guidelines of the Reform Agenda have been aligned with the Economic Policy and the Srpska Government has already initiated the reforms that aim to boost the economy, says Prime Minister Zeljka Cvijanovic.
Cvijanovic stressed the importance of harmonising certain solutions with the Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) so as to establish greater efficiency in key areas.
During a meeting with Joyce Anelay, the British Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict and Minister of State at the Foreign Office, and Edward Ferguson, the British Ambassador to BiH, Cvijanovic underlined her absolute commitment to the continuation of the European integration process.
The Srpska prime minister said that in order for Bosnia and Herzegovina to be successful in the integration process, the establishment of an efficient coordination mechanism is vital, fully respecting the constitutional competences of all government levels, the PM media office said in a press release.
The meeting that was also attended by the FBiH Prime Minister Fadil Novalic addressed overall reform processes that entity governments are implementing in accordance with their competences.
The collocutors said they were pleased about the entry into force of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement and the recent adoption of the Reform Agenda for BiH 2015-2018, which paves the way for BiH’s quicker movement on the EU path.
The Srpska and FBiH prime ministers informed Ms Anelay of the plans for the Reform Agenda implementation and other economic and political topics.
Ms Anelay said it was encouraging to see the two PMs’ constructive engagement on implementing reforms and solving outstanding differences and issues.
“We would like to see such approach in the quick implementation of the agreed reform agenda because there is no time to waste. The Reform Agenda is a set of demanding reforms that are necessary for the stabilisation of the BiH economy, creation of new opportunities and BiH’s progress on its path to EU membership. We expect to see all sides working on the implementation of the agreed, necessary socio-economic reforms,” Baroness Anelay said.
