In a meeting held on Wednesday, Kosovo’s government has approved the proposal for the establishment of the Development Fund.

On this occasion, deputy PM, Kujtim Shala, said that this fund will offer economic development and it will create new jobs.

“The fund for investment and employment will help economic growth in Kosovo, the creation of new jobs and the improvement of lending criteria for young entrepreneurs, small and medium sized businesses and corporations”, Shala declared.

During this meeting, the government also approved the agreement between the government of FYR Macedonia and Kosovo which regulates the movement of citizens in both countries without visas, through a travel card or an ID card.

The agreement between the two governments also offers mutual recognition of driving licenses between the two states. /ibna/
