Plan on building new power plant in Kosovo to be completed soon
Pristina, April 19, 2006 - World Bank and the EAR representatives said that the plan on building a new power plant in Kosovo with a production capacity up to 2000 MW/h, will be completed during this month. The deep energy crisis in Kosovo made international and local authorities think seriously about building a new power plant in Kosovo.

Kanthan Shankar, Representative of the World Bank (WB) and Thierry Bernard-Guele, European Agency for Reconstruction (EAR) Head of Centre in Pristina, explained that Kosovo should not get a loan for building the new power plant, but suggested to finance it through private investments. They said the construction of this power plant would be conducted in accordance with international standards for environmental protection.

“We feel that you have very valuable resources and we feel that there is a great demand for energy in the region. We consider that the private sector will be able to invest in this sector in Kosovo,” said Shankar.

“Kosovo’s objective now is to create conditions to attract foreign investors in Kosovo, but at the same time to help the Government to understand what the priorities are and what is being offered. We know that there is a possibility for Kosovo to become a supplier of the energy in the region, but we should be careful and know how to achieve this. Kosovo will have the opportunity for this and it will take it or lose it” said Bernard-Guele.

Approximately € 1 billion is the foreseen amount for building this new power plant in Kosovo.

Serbs can return to Istok | 10:38 April 20 | Beta

KOSOVSKA MITROVICA -- Istok municipal officials are denying the claims that they are not allowing Serb refugees to return.

Istok Municipal President Fadilj Ferati denied the claims made by the Kosovo Coordination Centre that the local government was not allowing a group of returnees to return to their homes in the region.

Ferati told the Beta news agency that a group of 30 Serb refugees will be returning to the region tomorrow.

He said that the return of refugees is one of the municipality’s chief priorities and that all the rumours circulating about the local officials trying to thwart the return effort are completely untrue.

According to Ferati, the municipal government has done everything it can to secure private homes for the returnees and help them with all the necessary documentation and paperwork.

The Kosovo Coordination Centre earlier stated that the local government in Istok, despite earlier agreements that it would help with the return effort, decided to not let a group of Serb returnees go back to their homes.

The centre said that 30 returnees, families which have been displaced to Central Serbia for nearly seven years, have decided that they will not give up on returning to their homes and will come back to Istok once again today.

The Spanish contingent of KFOR will be escorting the returnees back into the region, and assured that the unit’s soldiers will take care of all security issues.

According to the return program which was adopted by UNMIK, the Kosovo Coordination Centre and the local Kosovo government, in Istok, Djurakovac and other towns in the region, 75 Serbian homes will be restored. The owners of the homes have already signed a deal with the German THW organisation which has run estimates on the damages and has secured building materials for the restoration project.

well, I'm far away from being an expert but I'm monitoring s little bit what's happening in the whole Balkans area in the energy field ... I see investments from abroad are made only for secure returns, nobody wanna really put money to give more electricity to kosovo, somebody could be interested putting money to resell electricity to somebody else and getting money ... but due to the reported status of power in kosovo it seems quite hard ... what's your view about this ?

I understand wha you mean...and trust me we would all be happy if one of our countryman invested in our countries rather than someone from abroad, but these projects are so huge that local businessman are not rich enough to take on.
Another good thing about foreign investors is that they will try and make products that are competative with the products of the rest of europe, where as local businesman would try and make some cheap stuff just so that they can see quick money in their pocket....and those companies would not less long in my opinion, and i am not talking just about the energy supply sector, i am talking about every investment in general.

I don’t want people to be offended but truthful. Will Kosovo i Metoija (after gaining independence) be the poorest country in Europe – taking the place of Moldova. I suppose the answer is yes.
No offence. I have no secret agenda.

hmmm....i dont know much about moldova...but it all has to do with how functional your government is...they are the ones who can attract foreign investors...and they are the ones who can push them away.

I honestly think Kosovo is gonna bounce back, as it once was an industrialized province, and it has alot of potentials, and i am sure something will be made out of it.

Our government has no authority over Kosovo. The UN does. And why would we promote a province that will probably be independent?

what do you mean by WE?

Does Serbia promote Kosovo?
If it does it would not make any economic sence, and i am not prejudging the outcome of the negotiations, but however the solution maybe, Serbia (in my opinion) wont gain much from Kosovo in the future. Besides of course maybe free trade between the too.
