132 views

The European Commission hosted a Donors Conference for Kosovo, in Brussels, on 11 July 2008. European Union Member States, key international donors, international financial institutions as well as international and UN agencies were there to collect pledges from donors for Kosovo's socio-economic development, to create the conditions for growth, investment and jobs for all communities after it declared independence from Serbia in February 2008. During the conference, international donors pledged more than half of the 1.5 billion Euros aid requested by Kosovo to build up its infrastructure and democratic institutions. The European Commission will bring 500 million Euros and Olli Rehn, Member of the EC in charge of Enlargement, said that this would be a major contribution to Kosovo's development in addressing the real needs of all people with energy, education, transport and institution building. But he added that the Kosovo authorities had to ensure the good use of every single Euro. Hashim Thaçi, Kosovan Prime Minister, promised to use the funds wisely, to curb corruption, to promote democratic institutions and to ensure the respect of Kosovo's Serb minority.
