Lawmakers are working to improve the economy in Bosnia and Herzegovina as they recognize 20 years since the Dayton Accord ended the Bosnian War on Sunday.
Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Roger Wicker, R-Miss., introduced legislation last week to bolster the economies in the Balkan countries that have struggled in the wake of the armistice reached in November 1995 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.
"Since the end of the Bosnian war 20 years ago, Bosnia and Herzegovina has traveled a long and difficult road towards peace and reconciliation," Shaheen said in a statement. "This bill is an opportunity for the United States to step-up its efforts to promote stability in the region by providing much-needed financing to proven job-creators, while also opening up investment opportunities for American businesses."
