Purpose of the Conference
It is considered that the crisis caused by the corona virus COVID-19 is
universal in economic history and science so far, because it has
affected the whole world in terms of its cause and speed of occurrence,
as well as its consequences on a global scale. The crisis caused by the
COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the structural weaknesses of the world
economy, threatening to deepen the divisions between the formal and
informal economy, the public and private sectors, and between large
(more resilient) and micro / small (vulnerable) enterprises. The
fragmentation of the labour market was especially noted, which has been
reflected in the form of very low employment rates to date. Thus, the
crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has deepened the overall economic
relations, which are currently suffering consequences of unimaginable
proportions. Countries in the region of Southeast Europe are also facing
a crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus pandemic. All this makes this
region particularly vulnerable to sectorial risks. Moreover, some
economies face employment problems, fiscal risks, etc.  Even in Bosnia
and Herzegovina, it is still not possible to predict recovery from the
pandemic crisis. The consequences are still being seen in the private
sector, the trade, services and agriculture sectors. In that respect, by
sharing ideas and experiences through critical thinking, the Seventh
Scientific Conference ICEI 2021 aims to provide answers and a set of
macroeconomic measures to combat the crisis COVID-19.

Coronavirus also changed the way the Seventh International Scientific
Conference is held. This means that the Conference will be held as a
video conference. This crisis will be a great challenge for economics
and profession, and based on the experience previous conferences, we
expect the presence of a large number of eminent scientists, researchers
and experts in the fields of economics and business as well as
scientists from other fields, whose research would contribute to finding
solutions for successful coping with COVID-19 pandemic
The International Scientific Conference will receive significant media
