Prime Minister of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa said today that the government is aiming at creating a public administration of European standards, which will serve to all the citizens.

He said that one of the main challenges for the institutions of Kosovo in the reforming process has been the reform in the public administration.

“The government of Kosovo aims at building a public administration based on European principles at the service of the citizens and businesses. This is why we have decided to make the reform in the administration a priority”, declared Mustafa during his speech at the opening of the session for the priorities of the Reform in the Public Administration.

“In the process of integration, Kosovo, like many other Balkan countries will address concrete reforms which are summarized in following groups: in the reform of public administration, economic governing and competition of the market, the rule  of law and the realization of the rights and liberties o four citizens”, Mustafa said.

Meanwhile, the director for the West Balkan countries at the European Commission for Neighborly Relations and Enlargement, Jean Eric Paquet, said that he’s aware that the reform in the administration is a priority of the government and said that progress has been made in this aspect.

The head of the EU office to Kosovo, Samuel Zbogar said that the reform in the public administration is the basis for a society, adding that Kosovo must work and that the reform in the administration must not remain on paper.

Meanwhile, minister of Public Administration, Mahir Yagcilar said that 70% of the commitments for the reform have been delivered. /ibna/
