The business fair has opened in Pristina, with the participation of different production national companies, organized by the Council of the European Youth of Kosovo.

On this occasion, acting minister of Trade and Industry (MTI), Ismet Mulaj said that this ministry is constantly supporting youngsters to develop their businesses.

According to him, the holding of these fairs shows that businesses are being developed. “As a minister of Trade and Industry, I feel proud that young people are offering their help to create businesses. In cooperation with the European Commission, MTI has allocated four million Euros to help businesses which are specialized in production. I’m convinced that many of these young people who are today part of this fair, will benefit this grant, a grant of four million Euros which is being allocated by MTO”, said he.

Head of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce (KCC), Safet Gerxhaliu said that Kosovo cannot be integrated in the EU without an economy and that integration is made through the economy.

“It’s a utopia to think that Kosovo will achieve political integration without economic integration and this integration must be made by the youth in partnership with business community, with these heroes that I see here in front of me, who are the pillar of the acceleration of these processes”, said Gerxhalui.

Meanwhile, head of the Council of European Youth in Kosovo, Avdullah Hasani, said that such organization must be constantly made and become a tradition in Kosovo. /ibna/
