Today I have continued with the visits to Kosovo’s municipalities. Earlier we had a meeting with the Mayor of Fushë Kosovo and now we had a very productive meeting with the Mayor of Vushtrri.
I am also accompanied by the Chairmen of the Kosovo, American and German Chambers of Commerce.
We had an opportunity to discuss in detail the level of economic development of Vushtrri municipality with the mayor, for opportunities offered by this municipality and for problems they face, aiming to incite a very necessary dialogue, which has not occurred to date, targeting the economic development, increase of employment rates and increase in foreign and local investments in the country.
We know that economic development is more than necessary and that economic development is a guarantor of further stability of the country, and that it also contributes to country’s integrative processes.
