EU earmarks € 9.9 million for Kosovo's budget, faster reforms expected

July 29, 2020

The European Union office in Pristina said it allocated 9.9 million Euro to Kosovo's budget for the reforms of public and finance administration, the Beta news agency reported

The EU said in a statement it further helped Pristina's Government after its progress in implementation of its own strategies and achieving goals agreed upon with the bloc.

The Union has been working on those reforms with the Kosovo Government since December 2017.

"The Government now has to speed up reforms, especially to preserve its commitment to the implementation of the legislative package in public administration reforms and increase the responsibility of independent agencies, to maintain macroeconomic policy focused on the stability, and increase the transparency particularly in using budget money in public procurement," the statement said.

The new aid is also meant for containing the coronavirus pandemic, and its effects on the economy and public finances.
