Local conference in Bosnia concludes that EU opportunity should not be missed

Bosnia faces many challenges before it can apply for EU membership but the country must not miss its chance, a debate in Sarajevo on Monday heard.

Bosnia lags far behind other countries in the region in its efforts to join the European Union but there is still time to meet the conditions tasked for a membership application, a discussion in Sarajevo on January 30 heard.

The debate was organized by a Sarajevo-based team of international young activists, called “Time for a plan B(alkan)”, which gathered students, local and foreign speakers.

In the region, only Bosnia and Kosovo have not applied for the EU membership.
