Key developments and challenges

  • Economic performance has been weak. Bosnia and Herzegovina slipped back into recession in 2012, and there have been only limited signs of recovery in the first half of 2013. The European Union (EU) approximation process is at a standstill.
  • Macroeconomic stability has been preserved. Bosnia and Herzegovina successfully completed the third review under its 24-month, US$ 520.6 million, Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), in June 2013.
  • Important pension reforms were implemented. The new Pension Law sets a more sustainable structure for pension expenditures for the country's war veterans.
