Market liberalization and Kosovo producers

Prishtina, 22 April 2007 – The implementation of the Free Trade Agreement between the countries of the CEFTA region will begin on the first of May 2007. Officials of the Ministry of Trade and Industry believe that the agreement will encourage free market competition. Kosovo producers believe that the unequal competition will damage them, but according to them this is something that had to happen.

Head of International Relations within the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce, Safet Gerxhaliu believes that Kosovo producers will most probably find themselves in a difficult situation for about a year, as there will be an invasion of foreign products, reported Kosovar media.
