Honourable Minister Shala,

Honourable Chairman of the CBK Board, Mr Mrasori,

Honourable Deputy Governor,

Representatives of Financial Institutions,

Honourable participants, ladies and gentlemen,

I am pleased that today we are all together marking the World Consumer Rights Day, which is now transformed into an annual activity for the Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo. The special feature of today's organization is that this is happening within the activities of marking the 20th anniversary of the establishment of CBK, so we are in a good moment to reflect on the development of Kosovo's financial system over these 20 years and our orientation for the development of this sector in the future.

Kosovo started developing the financial system in 1999, at a time when everything had to be developed from the outset.
