Background Information:

The USAID-funded Partnership for Development Project in Kosovo is a four-year activity, with the purpose of supporting the institutions of the Government of Kosovo at central and local levels to create a business-friendly and regionally competitive business environment that will attract foreign investment to Kosovo, while at the same time maintaining macro-economic stability. The project is implemented by a consortium led by Chemonics Inc.

The project has three objectives which are as follows:

1. Business environment improvement;
2. Improved implementation of construction reforms;
3. Enhancing macro-economic stability and public financial management (PFM) at central and local levels.

By achieving these objectives, PFD will enhance the enabling business environment for the private sector growth and expand employment opportunities in Kosovo.
