We now need to address the issues of development, economics, education and health.

From now on, we want more such news from Bihać and this region,” said Džaferović.

“Since the competent state institutions got involved in solving the problem of the migrant crisis, the situation in the city of Bihać has significantly improved. That enabled us today to talk about development and infrastructure projects, and I am really happy with the receives support from Prime Minister Novalić and a member of the Presidency of BiH Šefik Džaferović.

The topics that we covered were the airport for which the FBiH Government provided 25 million KM, as well as solving the problem of the damaged building of the Health Center in Bihać, for which three million KM were also provided from the FBiH budget. There will be no lack of support when it comes to road-traffic projects, which we are also extremely happy about,” Fazlić added.
