Prishtinë, October 3, 2018 – The American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo welcomes the decision of the Government of the Republic of Kosovo on the regulation for tax and customs incentives for employers who employ persons with disabilities as well as for those who operate independently.
AmCham believes that the approval of this regulation will enable equality in employment opportunities for persons with disabilities and will stimulate businesses operating in Kosovo to employ them.
AmCham also values the finalization of the secondary legislation in promoting professional training and employing persons with disabilities as encouraging, i.e. a response to the previous calls raised by AmCham and other organizations in further providing better employment opportunities for persons with disabilities and also end the discrimination.
In conclusion, the American Chamber of Commerce strongly believes that the decision of the Government will help the implementation of the Law on Training, Professional Rehabilitation, and Employment of Persons with Disabilities, as well as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
