In addition, the EU has approved assistance for Kosovo via its neighbourhood programme (part of its Western Balkans Covid-19 package worth 410m euros). On top of funds for healthcare systems, the EU is mobilised €63 million to support the social and economic recovery of Kosovo. How the money is to be spent is being co-ordinated with the EU, international and national financial institutions “to support the real economy, including SMEs, and support liquidity, also of the banking sector.”  

RUNDA (the independents music companies association for the region) would like to see part of these monies used to support music and other cultural sectors.
