Trade Minister against Government’s decision on protective measures

Minister of Trade and Industry, Bajram Hasani, reaffirmed his position in favor of protective measures on 21 products but said he would respect the government’s position to lift them. 

He also said that the introduction of the measures did not violate the free trade agreement, CEFTA, or the Stabilisation and Association Agreement with the EU. 

Hasani made the comments after meeting the new chairman of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce, Berat Rukiqi.
