The inauguration of the business forum will be attended by Slovenian President Borut Pahor, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad and members of the Presidency of Bosnia.

Also, a large delegation of 50 business people from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and high ranking officials from many countries will participate.

The forum will set the scene for exchange between top government officials and key business figures in Bosnia and Herzegovina and other Balkan countries.

Bosnia and Herzegovina this year is expecting a record number of participants.

Amer Bukvic, CEO of Bosna Bank International, earlier said the forum aims to make the region a single economy under the slogan of 'One region-one economy'.

The Sarajevo Business Forum has been held since 2010 in a collaborative effort by Bosna Bank International and Jeddah-based Islamic Development Bank.
