Prishtinë, June 29, 2006 - The South Eastern Europe Transport Observatory (SEETO) will allocate € 154 million to Kosovo. Shefki Ukaj, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunication (MTT) said that €120 million would be used for the construction of the Pristina-Durrës highway, while the rest for upgrading Pristina International Airport (PIA).
This is good news. Having traveled through all of the former Yugoslave states, I’m always amazed at how under-developed the infrastructure of Kosovo seems to be. I hope ever cent of this project money goes where it’s intended.
