Customs cooperation deal approved by Albania and Kosovo

Albania’s Prime Minister Edi Rama announced plans to form a customs union with Kosovo. A deal was reached during a recent visit to Albania by Kosovo’s Prime Minister Isa Mustafa.

“We consider that we have great possibilities for cooperation in energy and infrastructure, fields in which we will join also with others states in the region,” Mustafa told reporters.

In turn, Rama said: “We intend that documents recognised on one side of the border will be recognised automatically also on the other side, and that entrepreneurs will not lose more than five minutes when crossing borders.”

The governments of Albania and Kosovo will meet again on March 23 to discuss the customs cooperation in more detail, according to the Customs Today Report published on March 10.
