The welcome word of the Mayor:

Dear visitors, dear fellow citizens!

I am honored to welcome you on the official internet presentation of Laktaši municipality.

The municipality of Laktaši is recognizable as a place that favors a private initiative and all types of small and medium-sized enterprises, and our goal is to improve the local business environment by continuous and efficient dialogue with the private sector.

In the following period, our priority will be to raise the level of efficiency of the municipal administration and public enterprises, which will encourage and support the development of the modern economy and create an attractive business climate, both for the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as for the implementation of large investment projects.

Despite limited budget funds, we are trying to solve priority infrastructure problems, and with the help of various projects, we create a management that is customary for the citizens and the economy of our municipality.

The Municipality of Laktaši is a partner municipality of most international organizations operating in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and we are also involved in a number of projects implemented by these organizations.

Through our good cooperation with our diaspora, as a significant development resource, our goal is to continue to promote and encourage business cooperation between our diaspora and our business community.

The municipality of Laktaši is valid for the municipality that monitors the problems and needs of the young people, and therefore we are happy to support and implement projects related to employment through entrepreneurship support programs and the development of business ideas of young people with emphasis on information technologies, healthy food production and tourism.

In the past period, we had the most liberal decision on scholarships for students and students in the Republic of Srpska. And following the trends in the labor market, we introduced a new model of scholarships according to which the emphasis is placed on the personnel needed for the development of the economy of our municipality, that is, of deficient interests. Our intention is to try, through some projects and activities, at least partially to improve the situation when it comes to labor supply in accordance with the needs of the labor market.

Given that a prerequisite for the social and economic growth of a community is necessary, the quality of life in one area and the offer of various social events in the future, we will strengthen the support of sports, the promotion of culture and cultural events and the preservation of cultural and historical heritage.

Dear visitors, dear fellow citizens, I would like to remind you once again that we are open to all your useful suggestions and suggestions in order to make our Laktaši life better and more content.
