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.

Youth are an enormous resource for development and a key component for peace and stability in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Decisions they make and opportunities they have for education, training, employment, and civic participation will affect their country’s development outcome for years to come. But youth face significant challenges to participating in democratic and economic processes in BiH. USAID supports BiH youth from different ethnic backgrounds through a spectrum of activities to engage them in developing their communities and country.

After massive reconstruction following the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) war, the international community continues to play a key role in supporting the country’s progress and stability. Developing jointly funded projects with other donors is a powerful way for USAID to further its development goals and multiply the impact of U.S. foreign assistance. This labor-intensive process requires dialogue and a strong understanding of a donor’s development philosophy, program modalities, and capacity. Such challenges have proved well worth the effort in BiH.
