An International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission, which has concluded its visit to Kosovo, said the country has financial stability. Jacques Miniane, head of the mission, said Kosovo had a good economic growth in the last three months, and that the IMF predicts economic growth this year and next year. “We expect a budget surplus of €1.5 for next year. This is a very good starting point,” he said. Miniane said salaries were increased in line with economic growth. “Salaries will be regularly raised in line with economic growth,” he added. According to Miniane, the conclusion of the Arber Xhaferri highway will create room for new capital projects. Kosovo’s Minister of Finance, Bedri Hamza, said next year’s budget will be above €2 billion. “There will be investments in railroads and in other projects in which we will have safe funding,” Hamza said.
