In the coming period, the government will define the obligations of the concessionaire in the agreement before signing it with ArcelorMittal Prijedor.

ArcelorMittal Prijedor and the government of the Serb Republic entity signed a memorandum of cooperation in the project on December 31, 2021.

ArcelorMittal Prijedor was established in 2004 as a joint venture between multinational steel and mining company ArcelorMittal with a 51% stake and local mining company RZR Ljubija with a 49% stake. ArcelorMittal also owns a steel plant in Zenica, located in Bosnia’s other entity, the Federation.

The Serb Republic and the Federation are two autonomous entities that form Bosnia and Herzegovina.
