“Everything related to the stay and education of children, sports associations, sports clubs, as well as the social dimension, which refers to helping large families, is something that the Cabinet of the President of the Republic of Srpska, together with the Cabinet of the Mayor of Osmaci, will implement in the coming period,” added President Cvijanovic.

The President of Srpska confirmed that there was talk at the meeting about how to design projects to improve conditions in local schools, since the number of students in this local community has increased.
