First of all, I would like to thank you for your trust and honor for being nominated and selected for the prestigious Person of the Year Award in this category. This is a great recognition for me personally, but also for the entire Central Bank of Bosnia and Herzegovina. That is why gratitude, of course, goes to everyone at the Central Bank. I would also like to express my special gratitude to my family for the support they have given me all this time.

Večernjak's seal and awards for Person of the Year in various categories are prestigious awards and this happening of Večernji list has outgrown the borders of BH long ago and become a regional event. That is why it is a great honor to be just nominated, let alone to obtain such a recognition.

Our work has been recognized by international financial institutions and European Union institutions, which have assessed the CBBH and its monetary policy as the foundation of macroeconomic stability in BH.
