Major General Bernhard Bair, COM EUFOR officially launched the EUFOR Youth Campaign today, 31st May. The campaign focuses on the young people of BiH and that the institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina need to start functioning effectively. Only when this happens can BiH move towards the European Union and get things moving in the right direction to provide a better future for the youth.
Major General Bair said, “As EUFOR, we see the youth of BiH as the country’s future and so, we must give them and the country a chance to succeed. The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness across the country and remind everyone that BiH is standing still and by doing this, we are letting down the youth of BiH. We must make the youth of BiH the winners of both today and tomorrow!”
