Systematic approach to health care and system reforms?

Entity governments in BiH adopted new reform document entitled „Joint socio-economic reforms for period 2019 – 2022”. This document is a plan of socio-economic reforms which are designed to ensure sustainable and fast economic growth, better competitiveness of the private and better business climate, and depoliticization and increase in the efficiency of SOEs. Special attention is paid to health care system reform in both entities which is, judged by the content of the document, one of the priorities in this mandate. Unlike the Reform Agenda which treated the health care system reform as part of the area “Public finances, taxation and fiscal sustainability”, its 2.0. version defines measures in the health care area through separate part entitled “Comprehensive reform and improved quality of health care system”.

Market economy: depoliticizing SOEs and equal market opportunities

Citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina vote with their feet and migrate to countries where they can taste the fruit of their labor. Global migration trends are showing that citizens of countries with strong state control over economy migrate to countries where functional market economy is established which is evident from the example of BiH population which more intensively migrates to Western European countries and North America. That is why the transition to market economy is so important and in this mandate reform of SOEs should become its priority.

E - Governance in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Public administration reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina has been in progress in past fifteen years, ever since the Public Administration Reform Coordinator’s Office has been established in October 2004 pursuant to the decision of the Council of Ministers. Results achieved are, to put it mildly, questionable and Bosnia and Herzegovina needs to make a great leap in implementation of these reforms.

Why it is necessary to have lower labor taxes?

Due to tax policy, in Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) labor is an extremely costly segment of production. On behalf of themselves and workers, employers are required to pay around 72% of the salary, on top of net salary, for the purpose of taxes and contributions. FBiH has the highest total contribution rate in the region with 41.5% of gross salary, whereas in the Republika Srpska (RS) total contribution rate is only 33%. In Montenegro, the rate is 32.5%, in Serbia 37.8% and in Croatia 37.2% of the gross salary.

Socioeconomic development and (non)corresponding professional education

We live in times of great everyday changes marked by, among other things, education reform but also new business circumstances such as rapid technological development, industry 4.0., digitalization and, unfortunately, massive workforce drain. Changes in business circumstances are caused by other changes as well – system of values is constantly changing and living environment follows. In other words, world is rapidly changing and education is required to follow.
