Sarajevo, April 7, 2014 – The U.S. Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is pleased to announce that USAID is promoting tourism and natural resources in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), and the potential economic opportunities in this sector, through its April campaign, “Tourism in BiH: Get on board! The possibilities are endless.”

“BiH is a beautiful country, with magnificent vistas and other great natural resources. That’s a gift that should be shared. We want to make sure the world has access to it,” said USAID Mission Director David Barth.

BiH's natural beauty and resources also offer tremendous economic opportunities for BiH citizens to open their own businesses providing tourism services, such as new places to eat and drink, accommodations for overnight stays, or transportation to/from the airport. There are also opportunities for even smaller businesses, such as mountain guides services, bike rentals or souvenir stands. The possibilities are endless.

Fifteen years after a brutal war, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) still must ensure political stability, foster a national identity, and create a single economic space. BiH struggles to perform basic governmental functions and has not transitioned to full sovereignty given the remaining outstanding conditions needed for closure of the Office of the High Representative (OHR). OHR is an ad hoc international institution created by the Dayton Peace Accords (DPA) and responsible for overseeing the implementation of civilian aspects of the DPA which ended the war in BiH.

USAID/Bosnia-Herzegovina is seeking proposals from qualified  individuals for a performance evaluation of the Partnership for Advancing Reforms in the Economy (PARE)  Activity in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Solicitation number is SOL-168-13-000007.

Closing date for submission of proposals is August 9, 2013, at 17:00 local time

Proposals must be sent electronically to kszekeres@usaid.gov
