Two Serbs, two Romanians, a Montenegrin and a Bosnian are on the World Economic Forum's list of young leaders, published in Davos on Wednesday.
The Serbs are Vuk Jeremic, President of the UN General Assembly, and Srdja Popovic, a founder of the "Otpor" movement against the regime of Slobodan Milosevic.
Igor Luksic, Deputy Prime Minister of Montenegro, is also on the list, as is Almira Zejnilagic, the director of FTI Consulting in Bosnia.
The list also includes Romania's Dana Costache, Founder of MindSpeaker Global Culture and Leadership, and Codrut Pascu, Managing Partner at Roland Berger Strategy Consultants.
