Jeta Xharra, Country Director of BIRN office in Kosovo and editor-in-chief of TV programme, Life in Kosovo, writes in an op-ed for Prishtina Insight that Kosovo requires hard work and practical solutions to cure many of the ills plaguing it.
“Kosovars are now being promised that if the tariff is removed, Kosovo’s path to ‘prosperity’ will be opened again. This is not likely to happen, even if we get rid of the tariff. Our country’s priorities are of a different nature. There is no quick fix or magic solution to Kosovo’s ills,” Xharra writes going on to quote a survey conducted this year by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) which concluded that less than 10 percent of respondents identified dialogue with Serbia as a priority.
