The creation of a joint market between Kosovo and Albania is
necessary and time has come to make joint investments. This was declared by
Gjergj Buxhuku, head of AlbKonfindustria, in the Expoforum organized in
collaboration with the Ministry of Diaspora, dubbed “New ways of funding
strategic projects Kosovo-Albania”, being held today in Pristina.
According to Buxhuku, one important prerequisite is the
strengthening of the current markets and the launch of active projects by the
countries that want to launch a search for private companies to invest.
“Both governments have started to realize the importance of
this potential. The Ministry of Diaspora has continued the creation and
consolidation of business networks which will turn into a partner of economic
development and the removal of the barriers between the two countries and the
creation of a joint market would facilitate doing business even more”, Minister
On the other hand, minister of Energy and Industry of
Albania, Mr. Damian Gjiknuri said that the Kosovo’s and Albania’s capacities in
the domain of energy have remained unexplored.
“We need foreign investments, to open our markets, because
we cannot be attractive without a sustainable market. The role of the
state is to facilitate investment and promote projects. We are lacking
projects. We have capital, but we’re lacking projects”, Gjiknuri said.
Minister of Trade and Industry of Kosovo, Hykmete Bajrami
talked about the efforts being made by this industry in regulating the legal
and financial infrastructure for foreign investments, stressing the importance
of starting the National Committee for Economic Development, which will
directly address the demands of possible investors.
