Covic: Visit to Croatia aimed at strengthening economic cooperation

Bosnia and Herzegovina's three-member presidency, that will pay a visit to Zagreb on Tuesday and Wednesday, will request during talks with Croatia's top officials that Croatia provides Bosnia with concrete support on the latter's journey towards the EU and that the two countries beef up their economic cooperation, said the current chairman of the presidency, Dragan Covic.

"We want to prepare together projections on how Croatia can help us on our Euro-Atlantic path," Covic said in a statement for the local FENA news agency.

"Also, there are limitless opportunities for our economic cooperation," he said.

Covic said that the Presidency would like to initiate meetings of top office-holders from the two neighbouring countries in the near future, including an intergovernmental session.

Bosnia and Herzegovina's delegation will be received by President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, Parliament Speaker Zeljko Reiner and Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic.
