On Friday, March 18, 2022 we held a meeting with representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Podbićanin Hajrudin, Assistant Minister, and Mrs. Miličević Žan, Head of the Customs Control Department.
On this occasion, we had a productive discussion on the development of digitalization in Bosnia and Herzegovina. AmCham BiH, on behalf of the ICT Committee, sent an initiative to the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina to reduce or eliminate the customs rate on certain IT equipment. The positive changes within this initiative have been significant benefits for IT companies by enabling them to develop their business in the market as well as increase the number of employees.
At the meeting we also agreed on the next steps we will take to implement this initiative, and we are pleased to have the support and understanding of the representatives of the Ministry.
The meeting was also attended by Mr. Damir Dizdarević, President of the ICT Committee AmCham BiH and Mr. Nedim Hamzić, Secretary General of AmCham BiH.
