The Bosnian Federation Chamber of Commerce, acting in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK), has organised the delivery of eight trucks full of building material donated by Bosnian enterprises for earthquake victims in the Banija region of central Croatia, the HGK said on Wednesday.
The donation includes cement, bricks, concrete blocks, and roof tiles, which will be distributed to Sisak, Petrinja, Glina, and Hrvatska Kostajnica.
The Director of the Federation Chamber of Commerce, Marko Santic, said that they had collaborated with the HGK on many projects.
“We look upon the HGK, and Croatia as an EU member, as our older brothers who are helping Bosnia and Herzegovina to overcome its economic problems and join the European Union. This was an opportunity for us to reciprocate,” Santic said, thanking all Bosnian companies that took part in the donation.
Speaking on behalf of the four towns, Petrinja Mayor Darinko Dumbovic thanked the Bosnian companies for the donation.
