Why conference on tourism?

Tourism is one of the most attractive sectors of the economy today. Unfortunately, in the Republic of Srpska and Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as in most developing countries, tourism is underdeveloped and high economic value that can be obtained by exploiting its potential is not sufficiently used. How tourism influence on competitiveness of one country? What forms of tourism are currently the most suitable and profitable? What's new in the tourism sector? Does one country can build its competitiveness on tourism – how? Whether the development of tourism, in economic terms of the sustainability of the country, can compensate for the lack of economic production? ...

These are some of the questions that are challenge for scientists, tourism experts and economists in revealing the opportunities and possibilities that the development of tourism and all related branches of industry provides for the economic progress of a country, for profits, better links with other countries, attracting clients, image building, etc…

Scientific-Expert Conference "Jahorina business forum" provides an opportunity for the presentation of empirical and theoretical knowledge about these issues and pointing to their impact on the improving competitiveness of business and the economy in the region and beyond.
