The President of the Board of Governors met today with Martina Hrvolova the Program Officer for Europe at the US based Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a core institute of the National Endowment for Democracy.

CIPE works with local business leaders to expand the opportunity for inclusive growth through market-led solutions. CIPE programs promote a rule-based system which emphasizes principles of democratic governance, enables entrepreneurship, opens trade, and fights corruption. CIPE and its global partner network create knowledge and practical tools to drive local change.

Given the fact that the CIPE’s key program areas include enterprise ecosystems, democratic governance, business advocacy, anti-corruption & ethics, and trade, today was a fruitful meeting during which a range of possibilities for cooperation between AmCham BiH and CIPE have been presented. Two of which are working on strengthening the entrepreneurship among the youth and anti corruption programs.
