Questionnaire for trade relations with the EU completed

Kosovo’s Ministry for Trade and Industry has completed the questionnaire for trade relations with the European Union.

Minister Lutfi Zharku, during the Inter-ministerial Council meeting on trade, which was also attended by Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, has said that the draft of 217 responses has already been finalized and is delivered to the Office of the Prime Minister.

On this occasion, Prime Minister Thaci said that by defining the form of trade relations with the EU, Kosovo has entered the concrete stage of integration process. According to him, this is an extremely important step in that direction.

“This opportunity provided by EU member states, is a unique European support, but at the same time the responsibility for us as a country is to respond positively to this process,” he said.

The initiative for a trade agreement between Kosovo and EU was launched in Prishtina by the EU commissioner for enlargement, Stefan Fule, during his recent visit to Kosovo.
