The signing of the Joint Order can be seen as the official start for the Joint Working Groups who focus on the enhancement of AF BiH’s capabilities using the ‘Capability Based Development Assessment’ methodology. This methodology will facilitate EUFOR in providing AF BiH with the operational readiness they require, in support of their objectives.
