Baker Tilly International has added former PKF International Bosnia and Herzegovina member firm to its network.

Baker Tilly Re Opinion, formerly PKF Re Opinion, is based in capital Sarajevo and has three partners.

Baker Tilly International chief executive and president Geoff Barnes said: "The Balkan States are becoming increasingly important to the global business community, particularly given their candidacy for becoming EU Member States".

"Baker Tilly Re Opinion has a strong local reputation and a clear and ambitious strategy for its future growth and ongoing development. I am delighted to welcome them to the network and further extend our coverage and capabilities in the Balkans, the strategic crossroads between Central and Southern Europe."
