The main reason for revising Kosovo’s GDP growth prospects downwards for the years ahead lies in the failure of a major foreign investment project in the winter tourism industry that accounted for some 7% of the country’s GDP. Growth of less than 3% is expected for 2016, largely driven by household consumption.
