(KSDK) - St. Louis is hosting Bosnian president Zeljko Komsic this weekend as part of the Bosnian Heritage Festival
Komsic will have a lot of local support in the Gateway City, as 40,000 Bosnians -- the largest population outside the country itself -- call the St. Louis area home.
This weekend's arrival represents only the second time St. Louis has played host to a Bosnian president. In 2004, Sulejman Tihic made a one-day visit to the city.
Local Bosnian-Americans like Adnan Sabic said the impact of the dignitary's rare visit is huge.
"It is nice that they come so we can make connections with them and maybe they can learn from us and we can learn from them," Sabic said.
The Bevo Mill neighborhood in south St. Louis City is where the heaviest concentration of local Bosnians are found.
Many of the residents and business owners said they hope to share their success stories with the Bosnian president.
"We want to open up Bosnia to foreign investment and we think St. Louis is a good place to start because so many Bosnians live here and are successful," said Ibrahim Vajzovic, acting head of the United Bosnian Association of St. Louis.
On Thursday night, hundreds of local Bosnians gathered at the Ritz-Carlton in Clayton for a World Affairs Council dinner at which Komsic was the guest of honor.
Komsic and his delegation will attend several events during this weekend's festival at Carondelet Park in St. Louis.
