Among other things, the Minister stated that: “There is no doubt that during these seven years, Kosovo has made a significant progress, starting from the consolidation of institutions, capacity building, infrastructure development, maintained an economic growth, concluded the international supervision and secured recognition and membership in international organizations. Kosovo has also made substantial progress in expanding the cooperation with EU.” Whereas regarding next steps, Minister Çollaku spoke about the need for recognition from the five EU member countries which have not yet recognized Kosovo, a step which on one side will reinforce the integration process but it will also affect the acceleration of the reform process and improvement of prosperity and stability in Kosovo and in the region. The Minister also stated that: “There is no doubt that Kosovo has great potential for further transformation, and EU should see Kosovo as a place for investment, trade and business opportunity.”
Minister Çollaku also spoke about the priorities of the government in the field of economy, employment and fight against irregular migration. He also emphasized the commitment of institutions in fighting corruption, organized crime and extremism.
