United States Embassy to Pristina has welcomed the successful finalization of the agreement between the government of Kosovo and “Bechtel & Enka” company for the construction of the highway linking Pristina to Han of Elez, which came following a transparent process.

This is said in a press statement issued today by the US Embassy, a day after the government of Kosovo approved the recommendations of the Leading Inter Ministerial Commission for the construction of the highway that links Pristina to Han of Elez, also known as Road 6, announcing the American-Turkish consortium Bechtel & Enka as winner of the project.

“Bechtel is one of the most successful American companies operating in the region and known for the construction of safe roads with the highest engineering standards”, reads the press statement of the US embassy.

“Road 6 will serve to the growth of trade and tourism in Kosovo and will bring new economic opportunities for the region”, reads the statement. /ibna/
