Visiting Director-General for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Christian Danielsson said on Tuesday that European Commission (EC) has intention to give opinion on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH’s) answers on EC Questionnaire by the end of May.

BiH Presidency members Sefik Dzaferovic and Zeljko Komsic stated country’s commitment to achieve full membership in the EU, which was confirmed by the adoption of the EU Integration Statement at the first regular session of the BiH Presidency after the general elections held in Oct.2018.

At the end of the meeting, Danielsson informed presidency members that he will invite investors attending European Bank for Reconstruction and Development 2019 Annual Meeting here on May 8, to increase their investments in BiH.
