Kosovo: no more subsidies for energy

Prishtina, 8 March 2007 – During a debate organised by the World Bank, Kosovar Deputy Minister of Energy and Mining, Agron Dida, has suggested not to provide any more subsidies for the energy sector. According to Dida the subsidies should instead be allocated to the health and education sectors.

“Kosovo cannot enter the new independence stage with this huge burden in the energy sector, which is absorbing the scarce resources needed in other sectors,” said Dida.
