Study Visit of Ukrainian Mayors to Bosnia and Herzegovina


Within the project “Covenant of Mayors East (CoM East)”, financed by the European Union, organized was the study visit of 18 Ukrainian mayors and/or their deputies. The goal of the visit was for the guests from Ukraine to get acquainted with the post-war experience of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the reconstruction of destroyed cities.

In this regard, the Regional Director of ASB SEE, Elmir Bojadzic, had the honor to address the Ukrainian officials during the presentation that was held in the premises of the FBIH Chamber of Commerce. ASB regional director presented the work of ASB SEE from the very beginning of ASB presence in Bosnia and Herzegovina and spoke about the challenges that the international community and local partners faced during the period of return and reconstruction from the aspect of humanitarian work and with the focus on post-war recovery and development. During the highly active discussion, he made sure to provide answers to different questions related to the process of reconstruction, reintegration, and recovery. Mr. Bojadžić also used the opportunity to convey the greetings of the entire ASB to the Ukrainian officials and introduced them to the work of our offices in Ukraine.

On behalf of the Ukrainian delegation, the Project Team Leader, Mr. Christophe Fréring, thanked the hosts for their hospitality, as well as for the selfless sharing of invaluable post-war experiences. The visit proved to be valuable and particularly useful, considering that through contacts with local officials, it enabled the adoption of good practice examples of renovation projects, energy efficiency and the use of sources.
