Minister: Croatia to continue helping Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Croatia's outgoing Science, Education and Sports Minister Predrag Sustar on Thursday visited Medjugorje, Citluk and Mostar in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, promising that Croatia would continue helping the Croat people in that country and assisting in the education reform that was being implemented there and in the preparation of projects to be financed with EU funds.

"The reason we are here is that we want to facilitate the absorption of EU funds as well as help Bosnia and Herzegovina, notably the Croat people here, prepare for accession to the EU," Sustar told reporters in Citluk.

Sustar expressed satisfaction with the formation of a new commission for the curriculum reform in Croatia, headed by Dijana Vican and Matko Gluncic, noting that the commission could also use the experience gained in the ongoing reform of the education system in Bosnia and Herzegovina, notably regarding vocational training
