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.
