Kosovo is a small country of 11000 square km and a population less then 2 million of people. More than half of landlocked Kosovo’s people live in poverty. Although it possesses rich mineral resources, agriculture is the main economic activity because of decades of under-development. Kosovos’ authorities and enterprising communities, including Kosovans in the diaspora, were able to kick-start an economic recovery in the years following the 1999 conflict. Growth of GDP peaked at 5.4 percent in 2008, after the immediate post-conflict surge. Now the economy is rising again, at 4.3 percent, following the 2009 global economic crisis. Kosovo has reached a critical juncture. The next few years could establish Kosovo firmly on the road to a stable and prosperous future, in which its far-reaching development aspirations are fulfilled.
