Kosovo is the youngest country in Europe, having only declared independence from Serbia in 2008.  Alongside increasing international recognition, a Stabilization and Association Agreement was signed with the EU in 2015, and the country’s geographic location at the heart of the Balkans makes it well-placed to access opportunities in the region.  Kosovo was one of only four countries across the continent to record positive growth rates during every year of the financial crisis of 2008–12, averaging 3.7 percent, and is on-track to achieve a similar level of growth in 2016.

Through plenary and more targeted sessions, where senior ministers were joined by high-level private sector representatives, the UK-Kosovo Trade & Investment Forum 2016 profiled the major business sectors of the Kosovan economy – Infrastructure, Energy, Financial Services and ICT – providing a unique opportunity for delegates to engage with ministers and senior government officials.
