The draft of the first part of the document (methodological guidelines, analytical and strategic part) has been already prepared, and now the phase of programming measures and activities for achieving defined strategic goals and indicators begins, following the priorities of improving the SBA profile of BiH and competencies for SMEs and entrepreneurship.
