To explore the subject, the following will take part in a panel discussion.

Zef Shala – director of the humanitarian group Mother Tereza/ Nëna;
John Chesnut – Chief of the humanitarian group Team Kosova;
Gjyljeta Mushkolaj – law expert; Fatime Islami – deputy director of the department of fiscal politics;
Bujar Shatri – Kosovo customs official;
Sakip Imeri – Kosovo tax administration official;

“Life in Kosovo” will be broadcast on RTK at 20:15 this Friday.
