Honourable...

It is my great honour and pleasure to welcome you today for marking the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo.

It is my great pleasure to have representatives of local and international institutions among us today, without whom it would not be possible to achieve the successes we have achieved to date. Therefore, on behalf of all CBK staff and on my behalf, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for all that you have done for us over the years and for the honour you have done to us by joining us in marking this very important anniversary for us.

To better understand the situation we are in, and the way we are heading, it is a good idea to go back a little retrospectively to remember how we got here, and to use the past as a driving force to move towards a more successful future.
