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.

    Following strong, tourism-driven service exports and buffering effects of state subsidies and remittances on private consumption, Kosovo’s economic grew at a rate of 3.5% in 2022. Negative influences such as low public investment activities and a negative terms of trade shock driven by surging prices for imported commodities could thus be more than outbalanced. For 2023, economic growth is forecasted to be even higher with a predicted rate of 3.8%, however, driven by very different factors than in 2022 – especially a predicted surge in public consumption and investment after stalling in 2022 is predicted to play a key role to this end. In addition, inflation is expected to ease over the year with sharp decreases already observable in the first months of 2023.
