Bosnia's Council of Ministers adopts revised list of IPA projects.

By bne IntelliNews September 8, 2011
Bosnia's Council of Ministers adopted a revised list of project proposals for IPA 2011 and ordered the country's European integration directorate to forward it to the EU delegation in Bosnia for adoption, ONASA news agency reported. Under the revised list, the country will be able to use funds in the amount of EUR 88.08mn from the state package IPA 2011. The Council of Ministers noted that the remaining EUR 8.2mn, which Bosnia had at its disposal, will be redirected by the European Commission to regional IPA programmes, which are used not only by Bosnia, but also by other Western Balkan countries. The revised list includes 14 projects in the following areas: justice and home affairs; public administration reform; private sector development; transport; environment and climate change; social development; and the acquis. As recalled, last month, the EU expressed concerns about the Bosnian authorities' disagreement on the projects, to be funded from the IPA 2011. The EU also noted that the country risks losing EUR 96mn in aid due to constant political bickering. Back then, Renzo Daviddi, acting Chief of the EU Delegation to Bosnia, said that he was asked to help find compromise during the course of the month.
