Minister of Trade and Industry (MTI), Hykmete Bajrami participated in the final conference of the EU Project for Trade Policies, which started four years ago and will end next week. This project has supported the Ministry of Trade and Industry in successfully applying trade policies in Kosovo.

Minister Bajrami said that MTI has the main responsibility in drafting and implementing the trade policy which determines what specific instruments are needed to have an impact in the exchange of goods and services between Kosovo and the rest of the world.

“In 2013, Kosovo has concluded important trade negotiations with the European Union, starting with a new chapter in trade relations between Kosovo and the EU through the Stabilization and Association Agreement. Kosovo has negotiated the Free Trade Agreement with Turkey and is getting ready to apply for accession in the World Trade Organization”, she said. /ibna/
