USAID/BiH Mission Director David Barth on corruption, other challenges faced by BiH citizens.
September 10, 2014

Good morning everyone. I see that most, if not all prosecutors from BiH Prosecutor’s Offices, have come to this conference. This is very encouraging since the topics you will discuss today are critical in reducing corruption, political patronage and crime; all three cited as the key problems facing the citizens.

I want to acknowledge and commend the presence of the new President of the HJPC, Mr. Tegeltija, along with Mr. Goran Salihovic, Chief Prosecutor of the BiH Prosecutor’s Office. Thank you both for attending this timely event. Timely, because BiH is a nation in grave danger and you, as Prosecutors, can play a significant role in helping to get this great country back on track. In fact, we look to you for leadership.

Now I could do the easy thing and just say wonderful things about all that we accomplished under this USAID-funded project. But that would make me feel like a hypocrite. I instead want to take a moment to speak about those things we did not accomplish together with this project – about how much more work we have to do together.

Mission Director David Barth and BiH Minister of Finance Nikola Spiric signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Dec. 11, 2013.  This marks the beginning of a new relationship between USAID and the BiH government. 
 
“Since the end of the war, USAID has stood with the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina in rebuilding the country, but our work together is not done. This MOU represents a new partnership that will help to implement local solutions in accountable and responsible ways,” Director Barth said at the signing.

As a country in transition, postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) still needs to ensure political stability, foster a national identify, and create a single economic space.  While over 50% of GDP goes to support the public sector, the country struggles to perform basic governmental functions and has not transitioned to full sovereignty.  The country remains deeply divided along ethnic lines, and these divisions inflame distrust and impede progress in virtually every socio-political and economic area.
