SARAJEVO, June 24 (FENA) - Bosnia and Herzegovina and Switzerland have a similar decentralized political system, but what BiH could use as an inspiration from Switzerland is the way the cantons work together, said Swiss Ambassador to BiH Andrea Rauber Saxer.
In an interview with FENA, the Ambassador recalled that the country has 26 cantons, some of them large, while some are extremely small, which is also similar to BiH. Similarity is also reflected in the fact that cantons in Switzerland do not want their authority to be taken away.
However, the cantons work closely together in various fields such as education and health, since not every canton has its own university or hospital. The ambassador notes that it is of the utmost importance that the cantons have constant communication.
