Since Kosovo’s independence in 2008, the U.S. and over 100 other countries have recognized Kosovo as an independent, sovereign state. The U.S. continues to support a multiethnic, democratic Kosovo, fully integrated into the international community. U.S. involvement in Kosovo remains a key pillar of our efforts to stabilize the Balkan region and ensure a Europe that is whole, free, and at peace. U.S. priorities in Kosovo are focused on strengthening the rule of law, fostering economic growth, and improving regional security.
U.S. Assistance to Kosovo
U.S. Government assistance aims to help Kosovo become a stable, democratic, and economically viable country within Europe, offering equal opportunity and protections to all its citizens.
Bilateral Economic Relations
U.S. investors in Kosovo are involved with projects in the construction, energy, health, IT, and real estate development sectors. Kosovo has been designated as a beneficiary country under the Generalized System of Preferences program, which promotes economic development by eliminating duties on approximately 3,500 products imported from Kosovo.
