The Serbian Chamber of Commerce recently confirmed for KoSSev that it has been waiting for Pristina to sign the agreed version of the main veterinary certificates for meat and dairy products since November 2018 and that out of 52 veterinary and phytosanitary certificates needed - only 15 have been signed so far. The KoSSev portal later also contacted the Kosovo Food and Veterinary Agency about the issue.

The Kosovo government continued with the construction of the Decani-Plav road - which began back in 2014. The section of the road expected to pass through the legally regulated special protective zone (SPZ) near the monastery of Visoki Decani was opened on Tuesday. The road construction continued even though decisions on construction within this zone can be made only with the consent of the Commission for the Implementation of the SPZ. The members of this commission are representatives of the EU Office in Kosovo, the OSCE Mission, Kosovo Ministers of Spatial Planning and Culture, as well as the Bishop of Raska-Prizren. In the case of the Decani - Plav road, the commission did not approve the construction; instead, an agreement was made to build a bypass route around the SPZ.
