Activities under the Diaspora Invest Project intended for strengthening of economic and overall cooperation with Bosnia and Herzegovina diaspora

This is to inform the investors from the Bosnia and Herzegovina diaspora about the activities under the USAID Project Diaspora Invest, and on establishment of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Diaspora Business Center that provides information and support services. We would like to inform you hereby that under the Project are awarded the grant funds to the investors, small and medium enterprises existing less than three years, which are partially or entirely owned by the investors from the Bosnia and Herzegovina diaspora.

Currently, the third call for application for grant funds under this USAID Project is being launched, and it will be open from the 1st October 2018, while the applications are to be submitted online at www.grant.diasporainvest.ba and application copies sent by registered mail. Info-sessions are envisaged to be held where the potential investors could learn more about application procedure, and all relevant information is available at www.diasporainvest.ba.

Through the previous two calls for application, the USAID Project Diaspora Invest has already established cooperation with the investors from all parts of the country. Successful stories and examples from practice show that this grant program was welcomed by the business community. By support provided to the investors, a space for investments is opened, creation of new jobs is supported, and use of new technologies in Bosnia and Herzegovina is also introduced.

First info-session would be held in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce of the Federation BiH on the 31st August 2018 in Sarajevo, followed by the info-sessions during the month of September in Trebinje, Široki Brijeg, Bihać, Banja Luka and Brčko.
