Kosovo “overturns” trade balance with Serbia

Not even biggest optimists could have imagined that one day Kosovo would overturn trade balance with Serbia and is now exporting three times more to Serbia than importing. 

“This is all thanks to the 100 percent tax,” the paper notes.

Haki Shatri, an advisor to Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, said that Kosovo has benefitted both economically and politically since introducing the import tariff. 

“Therefore we do not plan on lifting the tax until Serbia meets conditions that the Government of Kosovo has mentioned many times,” Shatri said.
