Presentation of the online platform for business connection of BH diaspora, which is being realized by USAID project “Support for diaspora investment in BiH”, took place in the Foreign Trade Chamber of BiH.

The new version of web-platform was officially launched at the event itself, and it enables online connection of BH diaspora, networking of professionals from different sectors and promotion of new business opportunities for cooperation in our country and the world.

Moreover, platform contains a lot of information and guidelines that are related to starting business in BiH, including guidelines for process of registering companies, ensuring residence permit, benefits for foreign investors, tax policies and explanations related to general legal framework, working legislation, as well as regulations in the field of construction, environment protection, and social and healthcare in BiH.

Director of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) mission Peter Duffy said that they have discussed a huge potential that diaspora has on several occasions, especially in the field of attracting foreign investments.

“When we talk with representatives of the diaspora who already returned to BiH, their picture is quite pink and they believe that there is a lot of potentials. We talked with our partners in the past nine months in order to encourage some activities and thus attract more representatives of the diaspora to invest in BiH,” stated Duffy.

According to him, the program of credit guarantees and grant programs have already started, and they started this platform as well in order to ensure better connections. He also noted that presented platform contains tools that will enable diaspora around the world to come and research market possibilities, make some connections and consider starting of investments in BiH in that way as well.

He added that this platform, like any other internet platform, is as good as it is used by people. He said that most people who left BiH and went abroad want to invest in our country but do not want to return and live here.
