Ranillug, 6 December, 2017 – Ranillug municipality applies the open door policy for local businesses to report corruption, however, businesses should be encouraged to use also other institutional and legal mechanisms available in the confidential report of corruption.
This was said on the roundtable organized by the American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo in cooperation with the municipal authorities of Ranillug, Eastern Regional Development Agency with local businesses, and with the support of UNDP’s Project, Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK). Today’s activity coincides with many other activities that are being organized in the country during the anti-corruption week.
Davor Petkovic from Ranillug municipality said that despite the straightforward communication of the municipality and local businesses, insufficient capacities of the local businesses and limited increase of the prospects remain alarming, due to limited access to finance, meanwhile asking for more attention on small municipalities across Kosovo.
On the other hand, the AmCham representatives spoke about the negative effects and the available legal remedies in reporting corruption, having in mind that it prevents fair and equal competition. They requested from the present businesses to play their role in fighting corruption, be that through preventing or even fighting it.
