Kosovo’s Diaspora Brings Business Ideas

By: Valon Xoxa    December 4, 2014

It is true that the current trends show Kosovars going abroad in search for  a better life, however there are also some reverse occurrences. Drenusha Shala is the co-founder of the Baruti market research company in Prishtina. Baruti currently is set in Kosovo’s capital with 70 employees who have all lived in Switzerland or Germany, and work in a call center dealing with German speaking customers.

Shala was quoted as saying that “Kosovo needs to improve its competitiveness and business environment, and support the private sector so as to reduce unemployment. A sound business environment demands further measures to tackle the weak rule of law and corruption.”
