Republic of Srpska President Addresses Opening of Republic of Srpska Students Conference “Most”


The President of the Republic of Srpska, Željka Cvijanović, today addressed the opening of the conference of students of the Republic of Srpska and of Serbia “Most” [Bridge].  The President of the Republic said that this is a very important gathering, which will result in many beneficial things for both Srpska and Serbia, and pointed out that this gathering should become traditional.

President Cvijanović expressed her satisfaction with the fact that she had the opportunity of supporting from the outset this great programme, which brought together student representatives of all universities from Srpska and Serbia, as well as delegations of youth organisations.

“I am very glad that we have already co-operated in several occasions in the past and I think that this should become a traditional gathering of all our young forces from the universities in the Republic of Srpska and Serbia. What they are doing today is laying the foundations for our future and it is important that they maintain ties with the institutions of the Republic of Srpska and of Serbia, a connection that should consistently improve and this should be a signpost for all our future generations of students,” said the President of the Republic.

President Cvijanović stated that students must first act together, to create a single space because it is in the national interest and in any other way to show interest in the field of education, economy or other activities in which they will be engaged.

“It is important that students, when they become people with professions, know that there are institutions that should provide an adequate framework for their lives, professions and advancement. The institutions cannot work on their own if they do not receive all the good suggestions from the student population and, tomorrow, from people of different professions,” noted the President of the Republic of Srpska.

President Cvijanović pointed out that the richness of this conference lies precisely there and in the very idea of organising such a gathering, which will result in many good things for Srpska and Serbia.

The President of the Republic of Srpska added that she was grateful to the young people for their commitment and determination to strengthen and develop Srpska and Serbia, to build themselves as young people and do their best to make that connection work.
