Prishtinë, June 27, 2018 – The establishment of the American economic zone presents a great opportunity in growing the economic cooperation between Kosovo and Iowa on attracting investments from US companies with their headquarters in Iowa. This was said today during the visit of the General of the Iowa National Guard, Timothy Orr, in the American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo where he was informed with the latest developments in this area.
