Life in Kosovo Debates the Privatisation of PTK

Posted on

Tonight, Life in Kosovo will broadcast a debate on the privatisation of Post and Telecommunications of Kosovo.

Should PTK be privatised? Why did the opposition boycott the privatisation strategy in parliament? How much is PTK worth? What will Kosovo benefit from this privatisation? Has the privatisation process been transparent until now?


How will PTK’s assets be divided? Why is 75 per cent of these assets been sold? What will happen to PTK employees? How will the recent investigations into PTK impact on potential investors?

To discuss these and other issues regarding the privatisation of PTK, Muhamet Hajrullahu’s guests in the studio will be:

Alban Hashani, from RIINVEST Institute
