On 15 March 2022 ALDA colleagues Katica Janeva – Skopje Office Coordinator – and Ivana Velkova – Project Manager – had a meeting with the Mayor of City of Bihac (BiH) Mr. Šuhret Fazlic and representatives from the Municipality.
ALDA has been engaged in the region since many years, and therefore it has great interest in further collaborate with local municipality, communities and citizens. Hence, this mission has to be understood within a broader context: the commitment of the Association in the Western Balkan.

More in depth, the objective of the visit was to assess and to see possible future cooperation especially in the field of migrants and local development.

Exchange on different topics and on the international cooperation developed by the Municipality have been among the key aspects fruitfully discussed during the meeting. Thus, representatives from Bihac expressed their interested and openness for further development of our collaboration.
