Queen's Birthday Party 2016

29 Apr 2016

Mineco were delighted to be one of the principle commercial sponsors of last night's Queen's Birthday Party held by the British Embassy Sarajevo at the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo. The event, held annually in honour of Queen Elizabeth's birthday, was especially important this year as the Monarch celebrates her 90th birthday having become the longest reigning UK monarch in 2015. As one of the largest UK investors in Bosnia and Herzegovina, employing over 600 people at our Gross mine in Srebrenica and Olovo development project in Zenica-Doboj, we very much appreciate the importance of the role played by the Embassy in supporting British commercial ventures.

The evening was a great success, testament to the Embassy staff's excellent organisational skills and was attended by over 700 dignitaries from the President of the Federation to the Eurovision hopefuls! Each year the Queen's Birthday Party additionally highlights a notable British event and in 2016 it is the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare - one of the world's greatest playwrights, whose legacy lives on today.
