Prishtina, August 18, 2022 – After a long break from one of AmCham’s most exclusive events, the executives of AmCham member companies and the Minister of Industry, Entrepreneurship, and Trade, Rozeta Hajdari, gathered for breakfast to discuss the inflation, energy, and labor issues. The aim of the meeting was to generate recommendations on how the Government and the private sector can contribute to overcoming these challenges.
Minister Rozeta Hajdari spoke about the most recent inflation challenges and the energy crisis that Kosovo is facing. Inflation is primarily being ‘imported’, considering the scale of Kosovo’s imports; whilst, the energy crisis is mainly due to the conflict in Ukraine.
Further, she acknowledged that these challenges are global, but do not spare Kosovo. Therefore, it is significant to tackle the impact these problems have, especially on the private sector. She assured that the government, respectively the ministry she directs, has prioritized these challenges and is working relentlessly toward creating eased conditions for the business environment in these difficult times.
Members expressed their concern on how these crises will impact their activity and offered their expertise and resources to help overcome the difficult upcoming months as swiftly as possible.
