About Bosnia and Herzegovina

USAID in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) contributes to U.S. Government objectives in the country by helping BiH progress toward a harmonized economy, effective and transparent government institutions with a strong civil society, and a multi-ethnic, tolerant society.

Helping the country to become a more stable country, closer to Euro-Atlantic integration, is USAID's goal. Reaching this objective includes establishing functional state-level institutions, inclusion of minorities in the political process, compliance with the European Convention on Human Rights, GDP growth, increased economic competitiveness, and a clear strategy for EU accession.

USAID's democracy and governance work in BiH focuses on accountable institutions that meet citizens’ needs. The Agency's economic growth work focuses on a competitive, market-oriented economy that provides better opportunities for all.
