Our forecast for Kosovo GDP growth is a stable 3% for 2013 and a reinforced growth of 5% in 2014. The improvement in 2014 will not only be due to improved external factors but also due to parliamentary elections likely to be held in early 2014. Thus, a fiscal stimulus can be expected to boost both consumption and investment. Budget deficit will not necessarily be affected too much altogether as there are substantial inflows of funds expected in the wake of the privatisation of the Post and Telecom of Kosovo (PTK) which is scheduled for mid-2013. The aim is to sell 75% of PTK, corresponding to the two business units Telecom (fixed telephony) and Vala (mobile telephony).
