Kosovo customs point opens in Albanian port

Kosovo-bound customs goods are now being processed in the Port of Durres in Albania, following an agreement signed between the two countries earlier this year.

Albanian Finance Minister Delina Ibrahimaj and her Kosovo counterpart Hekuran Murati and their respective customs directors, visited the customs office of Kosovo at the port this week.

“There are about 1,040 Kosovo companies that use the port of Durres and these capacities every year to clear their goods, and from today they will not only have the facilities that the two governments have agreed on with each other,” Ibrahimaj said, noting a reduction and removal of fees and a speeding up of the administrative process.
