The Financial Times, one of the most influential business magazine in the world, has released this year's report on best cities and regions for investment in Europe - fDi's European Cities and Regions of the Future 2018/19. As in previous years, BFC SEE municipalities have found their place on the list of best European investment destinations. In the category of cities with fewer than 100,000 inhabitants, the BFC SEE certificate holders, Šabac and Prijedor, are ranked among the top 10 European cities of the future with the best strategy for attracting foreign direct investment. In addition, six regions from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia, country members of the BFC SEE network, found themselves in the category of the most attractive European small and medium sized regions for investments.
This recognition is just another confirmation of the quality and significance of the regional Business Friendly Certification in South East Europe program, which has in the meantime grown into an internationally recognized standard for improving business conditions.
