Director of the Czech Development Agency Michal Kaplan and expert Štěpán Šantrůček are visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina this week, one of the priority countries of the Czech ODA. An important moment of their visit was the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation with Czech ODA’s partners in Bosnia and Herzegovina – the American agency USAID and the Swedish agency SIDA. All three agencies have been working together since 2011 on a project called FARMA, which locals consider very beneficial. Therefore the cooperation will continue within the framework of a project FARMA 2. As part of the visit the CzDA representatives have been also monitoring the ongoing projects of the Czech ODA.
