On Wednesday, July 13, 2016 in the premises of the Agency "PRVI KORAK" LLC Konjic, starting at 9:00 a.m. was held a meeting of the Management Board of Business Association Konjic. In addition to members of the Board, meeting was attended by mr. Zarko Horvat, representative of ProLocal program ahead of the GIZ, who presented the call for proposal for participation in the tender for grants.
EU ProLocal aims to contribute to a more dynamic economic and social development in Bosnia and Herzegovina by strengthening the competitiveness of SMEs. The focus of the program are small and medium enterprises from four key economic sectors (wood processing, metal processing, agribusiness and tourism) in 20 selected partner municipalities. Special attention was paid to further recovery and prevention measures in SMEs who have suffered damage in the floods in 2014.
The program includes grants for small and medium enterprises and development partnerships, with a total value of 4 million euros, which will be awarded through public calls in 2016 and 2017. In the future it is planned to hold workshops in order to inform all interested parties about the methods of elaboration and formulation of project ideas.
