EC President Herman Van Rompuy says Bosnia must move forward with reforms

On March 9, the Prime Minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina visited Brussels were he met with President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy.

Mr. Herman Van Rompuy praised Bosnia’s political efforts and urged for more reforms: 

“With a new Government in place Bosnia and Herzegovina can now move forward with reforms and to achieve real progress in the EU integration. Political and economic reforms – adopting, implementing and enforcing laws – remain central on the path to the EU.

The EU welcomes the recent positive developments, including the adoption of State Aid Law and Law on Census. At the same time, we hope that Bosnia and Herzegovina will step up efforts on the remaining issues to enable the entry into force of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement as soon as possible. We look forward to and expect credible steps in bringing the Constitution in line with the European Convention on Human Rights,” Van Rompuy said.
