The Republic of Kosovo: Achievements and Challenges After Two Years of Independence

His Excellency Fatmir Sejdiu, President of the Republic of Kosovo

The world’s youngest country, the Republic of Kosovo, declared its independence in February 2008. Currently 63 countries have recognized the Republic of Kosovo as a sovereign state, while it has also been admitted to both the IMF and World Bank. Kosovo’s independence has resulted in significant development for the country in all spheres and has proven to be a factor of stability for the region. Many of Kosovo’s international allies and partners, including the United States, NATO and the EU, remain committed to ensuring the stability of Kosovo. Sejdiu will discuss the present and future for his new nation.
