Daily Trip Report - July 25, 2003

Jill Wechsler -

Met with Ilaz Ramajli upon the suggestion of Ms. Osmani from the Chamber of Advocates. We spoke about the structure of his law firm (basically, there are two partners, and a group of about 15 others who do research for foreign clients). We also spoke about the challenges that lawyers in Kosovo face, and the challenges that new businesses face. He gave me some materials about the organization of his firm and about a project the group has worked on.

Met with Bejtush Isufi from the International Legal and Commercial Office, upon the suggestion of Beth Miller. We spoke about Mr. Isufi's efforts to find a foreign partner to work with and his goal of offering legal and accounting services under one roof. We also spoke about how he got his office started and about his perceptions of the legal environment in Kosovo.

Spent some time trying to turn in the NGO registration forms. I went to the Ministry of Trade and Industry first, but they said that they only register for-profit businesses there. So they wrote an address down for me to give to a taxi driver, and I ended up at the KTA. Someone at the KTA referred me to another office, so I will try to turn the forms in there on Monday.

Then I met Jehona for ice cream at the Grand Hotel. We talked for a while, and now here I am at the Internet cafe again.
