Almir Pestek, an economics professor in Sarajevo, says the fact that Bosnia is so underdeveloped makes it an unattractive prospect for investors.
He also argues that the educational system is not producing people with the right kinds of skills for the job market.
"The labour market's needs are not synchronised with the educational system," he said.
Pestek, from the University of Sarajevo, believes that students must invest efforts in creating their own future and not wait for somebody else to help them.
"No one can solve someone else's problems. Young people have to take things into their own hands," he said.
Pestek says that despite the shortcomings of Bosnia's education system and its weak economy, young people can do much to improve their own position.
"We provide a formal education to students, but they need to invest in their informal education, which is equally important," he said.
