President received letters of credence from Ambassadors of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Switzerland

President of the Republic of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus received letters of credence from the Ambassadors of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Switzerland.

Accepting letters of credence from the Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina Mr. Muhamed Hajdarević, the President talked about quite intensive business relations between the two states but underlined there was yet a lot of potential for the bilateral trade to expand. "I am convinced that a Lithuanian and Bosnian and Herzegovinian business forum would pave the way for new direct business contacts," the President said.

President Adamkus also mentioned Lithuanian experts who had been working successfully so far in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Head of State assured Lithuania's readiness to cooperate further - to share the best of its experience. "I would invite you to identify the specific areas where Lithuania's knowledge would be important and useful to you," Mr. Adamkus said.

The President welcomed Bosnia and Herzegovina for having signed the Stabilization and Association Agreement with the European Union which showed the country's progress towards European integration, and informed that the Agreement was now with the Seimas for ratification and would hopefully be discussed by the Seimas shortly, leading to an important decision concerning closer relations between Bosnia and Herzegovina with the EU.

Accepting letters of credence from the Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation Ms. Gabriela Nützi Sulpizio, the President underlined the reestablishment of Lithuania's and Switzerland's bilateral relations almost two decades ago. "We are grateful to Switzerland for having been a sincere partner of our country during all these years, for providing us with assistance in health care, research and development, and strengthening non-governmental organizations," the President said and expressed hope Switzerland's accession to the Schengen Area would bring the people of the two countries closer together and open new opportunities for legal cooperation.

According to the President, more and more Swiss companies are showing interest in the Lithuanian market but trade and investment opportunities have not been used in full yet. "I am sure that there is a range of possibilities for us to work together towards accelerating cooperation between our two countries, increasing bilateral trade and investment volumes, and expanding academic and cultural ties," said President Adamkus to the Swiss Ambassador.
