SARAJEVO, Bosnia (February 15,2008) - A two-day seminar, jointly organised by the OSCE Mission to Bosnia, the European Policy Information Centre (EPIC) and the European Commission (EC) Delegation, for members of the Bosnian Parliament on European integration began yesterday in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo under the chairmanship of Halid Genjac, the Head of the Bosnian Parliamentary Assembly’s Committee on European Integration.

During this seminar international experts and members of the EC Delegation will discuss with the members of the Bosnian Parliament issues affecting the goal shared by Bosnia and the region of closer integration with the European Union.

Topics include the accession status of the countries of the Southeastern Europe and the challenges facing and responsibilities resting with the Bosnian Parliament and its Committee on European Union Integration, the OSCE said.

This seminar forms part of the OSCE Mission’s programme to strengthen the state legislature, which implemented thanks to the financial support of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

In addition, at this seminar EPIC will present a project sponsored by the British Embassy to promote small businesses through the EU’s Lisbon Agenda - the engine behind the European “knowledge economy.”
