NEW ERA - DOING BUSINESS - CONNECTING GLOBALLY - EAST AND WEST REBOOT

Challenges and opportunities of "targeted globalization" for the post-pandemic world

For the first time, the Global Business Executive Retreat 2021 will be organized in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is a new format for gathering managers, government agencies, business people, decision makers, development agencies and representatives of private and public institutions for a four-day event. The goal of this prestigious business gathering is to connect companies from Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region with companies from West Africa, the GCC countries, the European Union, Turkey and China.

Through interesting plenary sessions with distinguished guests from all over the world we will address important topics, touch on modern technologies, success stories and create opportunities for cooperation of our local and regional companies in other international markets. Carefully selected encouraging speakers will motivate conference participants to take action through B2B meetings, which will follow the official part of the program.

The topics are very current and appropriate at a time when all economies are facing the challenge of transformation in the digital age and the pandemic era.

The gathering will bring together 100 participants from more than 20 countries. Opportunities for business discussions and networking will be provided through numerous joint activities and socializing.

The following topics will be covered in more detail in the panel discussions:

  • CONNECTING WEST AFRICA WITH THE BALKAN REGION
  • FREE ZONES
  • NEW ERA OF BUSINESS - INNOVATION, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, DIGITALIZATION
  • TOURISM TODAY

Global Business Executive Retreat 2021 will be held on Jahorina mountain in Hotel Vučko in the period from July 1 to July 4, 2021. Excursions on Jahorina and visits to Sarajevo and Ravne Park in Visoko are planned.

Our mission is to significantly influence the creation of a positive business climate for foreign and domestic investors and encourage the creation of strong global business ties and thus strengthen the local economy. Together we can detect new business opportunities, explore new opportunities for cooperation, attract investments, place the right products on the right markets and combine knowledge and experience for the purpose of mutual prosperity. Investors crave fresh ideas, the market for quality products, employers for good experts, companies for cooperation and good ideas for realization.

The upcoming event will create an environment in which stakeholders will recognize, meet and connect.
