PRESS RELEASE – Director Murtezaj meets with the Customs Director

General Director of Tax Administration of Kosovo, Ilir Murtezaj, hosted today the Director of Kosovo Customs, Bahri Berisha.

The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the continuation of inter-institutional cooperation in joint activities to combat the informal economy, which, according to Director Murtezaj, undermines to a large extent the fiscal interests of the Government, causing the reduction of revenues for the state budget. This also weakens state infrastructure as well as its ability to provide better public services.

On the other hand, the Kosovo Customs Director congratulated Director Murtezaj for the new position and expressed his readiness for further cooperation.

The directors of the two institutions stressed the importance of continuing the cooperation as well as the coordination of activities between the two main institutions contributing to the state budget.
