In spite of the failure to constitute parliament, the government of Kosovo has drafted the 2015 budget, which, according to PM Hashim Thaci, includes the biggest capital investments in the region.

The creation of the institutions of the country has been blocked, but the acting government of Hashim Thaci is in the final stage of drafting next year’s budget.

Prime minister Hashim Thaci said that the 2015 budget will amount to 1 billion and 670 thousand million Euros and it includes capital investments, which according to him, are the highest ones in Western Balkan.

“We’re at the final stage of the drafting of the 2015 budget, which is the only one in the region which continues to grow”, declared prime minister of Kosovo.

“The budget will incorporate the greatest capital investments in the West Balkan and it will improve social welfare. The budget is based on a 4.6% economic growth with a total value of 1 billion and 670 million Euros. We will be responsible with public money, focusing on the needs of Kosovo in creating new jobs”, said Thaci. /ibna/
