In their joint address, Čadež and Rafuna emphasised the importance of continued commitment to promoting cooperation between Kosovo and Serbia. In a statement published by the umbrella organisation of the six chambers of commerce in the Western Balkans, WB6 CIF, they highlight that

despite the challenging political circumstances, the exchange of goods between the economies of the Western Balkans has continued to increase. This clearly shows the great interest of the business community for mutual cooperation and provides tangible evidence how connected economies of our region are.

They expressed their shared determination to support businesses in Kosovo and Serbia, paving the way for a successful collaboration between companies in both countries and the entire region.

The Chambers of Commerce of the six economies of the Western Balkans support all efforts to close open issues between our economies through dialogue and within the processes supported by the European Union and the United States of America.

"With all this in mind, we call on all the responsible actors to immediately take steps to calm the situation and ensure that political developments do not hinder ever improving business

environment and the progress that the economies have made."

Their commitment to dialogue, understanding, and economic cooperation represents the dedication and a vision of reconciliation and stability that is currently needed on the political level, too.
