€63 million to bring Kosovo* closer to Europe
"Reforms to increase the efficiency of the judicial system, improve public administration and promote a more dynamic and resilient private sector are the key priorities of our assistance in Kosovo. This not only helps Kosovo move closer to the EU, but it also aims to bring about real change in Kosovo society for the benefit of all its citizens", stated Commissioner Štefan Füle on 9 November as the European Commission announced that it has allocated €63 million to support Kosovo's efforts to implement its EU-reform agenda. The funding earmarked is included in the 2012 annual programme for Kosovo under the EU's Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA), and will be topped up with an additional €20 million of co-financing by Kosovo authorities and other donors.
