Euro-Asfalt CEO Hamed Ramić stated in his address that sports are neglected in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Great athletic talent, both in individual and in team sports, is underfunded, not equipped for proper preparations and training, and lacks other conditions for being professional athletes.
“As you know, I come from the private sector. I am the CEO of Euro-Asfalt, a leading construction company in BiH. Just as our athletes carry the name of our country through stadiums across the globe, Euro-Asfalt also carries the name of Bosnia and Herzegovina across the world’s building sites. Our path is not simple and our goals are not easy. We are aware of the difficult task ahead of our distinguished athletes as they conquer new countries, side by side with the best and the strongest,” Ramić said.
