The chief of the EU Delegation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Johann Slatter, and the resident representative of the UNDP in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Steliana Nedera, signed the required documents on March 26 for the package of financial aid worth EUR2 million, for urgent medical needs in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the fight against the corona virus.

This money is intended for the purchasing of 80 ventilators, testing kits and personal protection gear, it was stated by the EU Delegation in Bosnia.

It was announced that this was the first part of the EU's aid, and that the second, worth EUR5 million, would soon follow, which would make the EU's total assistance for the country's urgent needs worth seven million euros.

Besides the urgent aid for medical needs, it was announced that the EU would designate more than 70 million euros for saving jobs, by helping the most vulnerable businesses, including companies which operate in the tourism and transport sectors.
