Governor Ismaili met with senior leaders of the Council of Bureaux for Green Card in Brussels


Governor of the Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo (CBK), Mr Ahmet Ismaili, met the senior leaders of the Council of Bureaux in Brussels, Mrs Sandra Schwarz – President and Mrs Greet Flore – Managing Director.

Representatives from the Kosovo Insurance Bureau and officers of the Kosovo Embassy in Brussels were also part of the delegation.

Governor Ismaili informed them on the latest developments and the progress achieved in the financial sector, with an emphasis on the insurance industry in the Republic of Kosovo.

Moreover, Governor Ismaili argued the need and obstacles resulting from the lack of the Green Card towards businesses, citizens of our country and the diaspora in relation to the free movement.

Possible ways and arrangements for addressing the issue of achieving the important objective for free movement of people and goods were also discussed.

Senior leaders of the Council of Bureaux extended their gratitude towards the delegation of the Republic of Kosovo for the visit and expressed their willingness to look for the opportunities and potential alternative arrangements for solving this issue.

However, they recalled that legal restrictions deriving from the Statute of the Council of Bureaux constitute the main challenge that requires time to be addressed. 

Governor Ismaili emphasized the dedication of the CBK for this purpose, the support from the Government and the institutions of the Republic of Kosovo and the cooperation with international partners to find a solution in this regard.
