Acting prime minister, Hashim Thaci declared today that he has received good news from the Central Bank of Kosovo in relation to the international recognition of Kosovo’s independent IBAN code.

 
He said that Kosovo now has its own international SWIFT and IBAN codes which will enable easier and more accurate money transfers, transparency and a better efficiency in the fight against money laundering.

 
“This is the result of a joint effort of the Central Bank, Kosovar commercial banks and partner countries which have lobbied for Kosovo to have its own independent banking system”, said Thaci. /ibna/
