The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick is paying a 3-day visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina at the beginning of this week.
While in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Deputy Administrator Glick will meet with the Presidency of BiH to discuss USAID’s current efforts to support the nation’s journey to self-reliance and the importance of addressing the critical challenge of human trafficking in the country.
The Deputy Administrator will also meet with key members of the Inter-Religious Council to discuss efforts to bring together citizens of different ethnic and religious backgrounds. In addition, she will attend a film-screening of the USAID-supported “Connect the Dots” documentary, part of an initiative which brings together young people of different ethnic and religious backgrounds through cultural exchanges and study visits to religious sites across the country. The Deputy Administrator will also visit the USAID-supported firm Trikon to learn more about USAID’s efforts to catalyze diaspora investment in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
To date, the U.S. Government, primarily through USAID, has provided more than $1.8 billion in assistance to support economic, democratic and social progress in BiH.
The U.S. Agency for International Development is leading the U.S. Government’s efforts to end extreme poverty and promote resilient, democratic societies.
