Head Krstičević emphasized strong commitment of the Republic of Croatia to help the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina, particularly returnees to the country. It is a strategic interest of Croatia - pointed out the Head Krstičević.

She introduced the Bishop Komarica and Rev. Ancic to the recently completed tenders for funding educated, scientific, cultural and health programs and projects of particular interest to the Croatian people in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which the Croatian Government implemented since 2002. In 2012. the State Office made a significant step forward comparing to previous tenders - financing the fewer, but larger, strategic projects. "The main criterion for the selection of projects and programs was that their funding significantly contribute to sustainable and long-term survival, recovery, and staying put of the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This especially applies to the return of Croats to the Republic of Serbia and so in this particular part we gave financial support to the projects of road construction and electricity network reconstruction "- said the Head Krstičević.

Bishop Komarica introduced the Head Krstičević to the current situation regarding the Public invitation to refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the countries of the region, which was sent by the Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and handed her a statement of the Commission of the Bishops' Conference of Bosnia and Herzegovina "Justitia et Pax" in which the facts and the difficulties encountered by Croats-Catholics who wish to return to their homes in Bosnia were stated.
