CDBK: Kosovo in CEFTA as a country, not through UNMIK

The Chamber of Doing Business in Kosovo (CDBK) has welcomed the decision of the Minister of Industry, Entrepreneurship and Trade, Rozeta Hajdari, to request the CEFTA Secretariat to enable Kosovo to be represented as a country and not through UNMIK.

In a statement to the press, CDBK said that the Minister's request is in line with what the chamber has advocated for years.

"Furthermore, we have signed this agreement without prior protection provided to any product and what's more it is very important for Kosovo to finally begin to protect local products and every obstacle it faces through full reciprocity."

CDBK thanked Hajdari for addressing the issue of Kosovo's representation at CEFTA "considering that as a country we need to be treated equally with all other signatory countries of this agreement."
