Kosovo is one of the youngest GET project countries. Since 2021, the German Economic Team has been advising the government in Pristina on economic and structural policy reforms.

The large Kosovar diaspora contributes a significant share to economic output, with transfers to the home country being used mainly for consumption. The most important economic sector is services, followed by a rather small industrial sector and agriculture.

Challenges for the Kosovar economy include the development of the manufacturing sector and the integration of the country into international economic structures. The German Economic Team supports the country on its path of economic policy reform. Hereby, the main focus of the consultancy is on industrial- and trade policy, as well as on energy policy.

    With a real GDP growth rate of merely 2.7% in 2022, Kosovo’s economy is experiencing only moderate economic growth. In particular, a massive increase in imports of goods – following surging global prices for key products – as well as weak consumption on the back of inflation and declining public investment had a negative impact on economic performance. These negative influences were at least partially absorbed by remittances and tourism activities of the Kosovar diaspora. For 2023, the outlook is slightly more favourable, with a recovery predicted for both consumption and investment following an expected ease in global commodity prices.
