German ambassador in Bosnia: Cooperation will make this region stronger

This whole region must learn to live with each other without interfering with each other's affairs, German Ambassador in Bosnia Christiane Hohmann said in an interview for N1, adding that the cooperation will make the region stronger.

Bosnia has neighbours who could help it accelerate the accession to the European Union, Serbia which is in process of negotiations and Croatia which is already a member state, said the ambassador.

Germany and its Chancellor have always supported Bosnia's path to the European Union and this will, according to Hohmann, not change.

“Currently, the chancellor is in power and we haven't seen any elections coming up this time soon so I would expect another three years of full engagement of the Chancellor on Bosnia and on the whole region. This region is very close to her heart and she is extremely well briefed on the detailed situation on the ground. So the engagement is still the same,” she added.

The ambassador among other issues also commented on the ongoing mass emigration of Bosnian nationals to Germany for a job hunt. She said she believed they would be eventually returning to Bosnia carrying the new work experience they gained there.

“Emigration is happening and will be happening. But my hope would be that more people actually come back with the experience they have gathered and bring in that knowledge and these capabilities here into Bosnia and not stay away. So for that, we need to improve the situation on the ground, create jobs, social security, better education so people want to come back to their home country,” she added.
