U.S. Relationship

U.S.-Kosovo Relations

Since Kosovo’s independence in 2008, the United States and over 100 UN-member countries have recognized Kosovo as an independent, sovereign state. The United States continues to support a multiethnic, democratic Kosovo, fully integrated into the international community. This remains a key pillar of U.S. efforts to enhance stability in the Balkan region as part of a Europe that is whole, free, and at peace. U.S. priorities in Kosovo include the comprehensive normalization of Kosovo’s relations with Serbia, centered on mutual recognition, strengthening governance and rule of law, and fostering economic growth and energy security.

U.S. Assistance to Kosovo

U.S. Government assistance aims to help Kosovo become a just and prosperous democracy within Europe, offering equal opportunity and protections to all its citizens. U.S. foreign assistance to Kosovo targets the three goals of peace, justice and prosperity.

Bilateral Economic Relations

U.S. investors in Kosovo are involved with projects in the construction, energy, health, information technology, and real estate development sectors. Kosovo is 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.
