Economic Overview & Business Opportunities
The capital and largest city in Kosovo, Pristina provides the gateway to business in Kosovo, which derives its three major benefits from trade liberalization, namely improved export possibilities, a better investment environment, and stable relations with its neighbors. Exporters enjoy free access to a market of over 500 million consumers. Kosovo is a member of CEFTA and it benefits from non-reciprocal, customs-free access to the EU market based on the EU Autonomous Trade Preference (ATP) Regime. Kosovo is well endowed with natural resources and agricultural land. The sectors of agriculture, food and wood processing, construction, textile, IT, automotive components, energy, and mining offer the most opportunities for foreign investors. Bearing in mind the advantages of a young, skilled and multilingual population as well as the low taxes, IT-outsourcing is an interesting opportunity.
