LONDON - Pristina needs to lift its 100 pct taxes on goods from central Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbian PM Ana Brnabic on Monday said at a Western Balkans investment summit in London, organised by the EBRD.

She expressed the hope Kosovo PM Albin Kurti would reconsider lifting the taxes.

We need to be thinking about ways of facilitating trade and creating a favourable business environment, she told a panel also attended by Kurti.

We must all be much more pragmatic about such things because the people living in the region expect that from us as they want to have a different future, she said.

We have great potential and I think it is advantageous that we are leading countries and economies in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which provides specific conditions, she said.

We need to get back to the pragmatic way of thinking about what we need to do to improve the quality of life - it is an opportunity for all of us, she said.
