which could help develop the city and create new jobs. Chairman Čović stressed the importance of Luke Ploce for Bosnia and Herzegovina and expressed his support for strengthening the efficiency and quality of port services, which will ultimately contribute to an increase in total trade and competitiveness of the economy of Bosnia and Herzegovina. They agreed that it was necessary to intensify the continuation of the construction of Corridor Vc, thus eliminating traffic barriers to the industrial hinterland of Bosnia and Herzegovina and opening up opportunities for economic development throughout the geographic area supported by the Corridor, according to a statement from the BiH Presidency.
