On this occasion the delegation met representatives of the executive and legislative power of the Canton, Mayors of the municipalities within the Canton, delegates in the Parliament of the F BiH from this Canton and representatives of the local business community.
According to the Vice-President of the Federation, the visit of great number of the Federal officials from different sectors to this Canton is very important and the main purpose was offering support to the new Prime Minister and new Government.
On this opportunity the Federal Ministers talked about projects implemented in this Canton with the assistance of their Ministries, as well as their future plans. All of them agree that this Canton needs the assistance of the Federal Government in all segments, since its sustainability depends on financial and other assistance of the higher level of government.
Since Budget proposal of the Federation of BiH for 2009 did not include financial help for the lower levels of government it was agreed that members of the Government of F BiH and delegates of the Federal Parliament from this area should make efforts in order to amend the above Budget proposal and secure financial assistance for the poorest Cantons in the Federation. This was also opportunity to emphasize the importance of construction of road Sarajevo – Gorazde, which is the main precondition for the development of the entire region.
During the visit, delegation of the Government visited companies “Ginex” and “Bekto precisa” as well as the Ministry of interior of BPC Gorazde.
