Minister Dujmović emphasized that this conference is one of the most significant youth-related gatherings held in the Federation of BiH because it gathered all bearers of the youth policy process from all over the Federation of BiH. "We have here today youth officers from cantons, cities and municipalities from all over the Federation and also Youth Councils, as well as youth from local communities, selected by UNDP, and allow me to emphasize that it is precisely them - youth who are both the aim and the purpose of this conference. We acknowledge youth as equal partners and in the following period we expect full cooperation for improvement and development of their position through the activities we are conducting" - said Zora Dujmović, the Federal Munister of Culture and Sports. 

This year is very important for youth in the Federation of BiH. In 2016, the adopting of first Youth Strategy in FBiH is expected, as well as developing the Action Plan of the Strategy, forming Youth Council of FBiH and developing a series of cantonal and other local youth strategies. Jasmin Bešić, the Executive Director of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, emphasized that after the Council for Youth of FBiH is formed, which should occur soon, since the formation of Youth Council was expected, the institutional phase of developing the youth sector in FBiH will be completed. 

"The Institute for Youth Development KULT has been supporting the work of youth officers for the past 12 years. We include the participation of local communities and have excellent cooperation with them. Youth officers are the ones who play a significant role in the process. The dialogue among the officers of our programs has always been productive and we see their cooperation as a very important factor in conducting youth policy" - stated Bešić.
