UK-Bosnia & Herzegovina Trade & Investment Forum

2nd November 2017, Central London

ABOUT THE FORUM

A senior government delegation will attend the Forum to showcase the many investment opportunities that Bosnia & Herzegovina can offer international investors. This invitation-only event will profile the Bosnian economy, providing a unique opportunity for delegates to engage with ministers and senior government officials.

DMA was privileged to host the Government of Bosnia & Herzegovina for the first UK-Bosnia & Herzegovina Trade & Investment Forum in 2013 and we look forward a similarly successful Forum in November 2017.
