The new government has a tiny majority and is made up of a diverse set of
parties, meaning that significant reform will be difficult. However, the
economy is growing strongly, driven in particular by supportive external
factors, and this is likely to remain the case over the forecast period. Exports
are growing rapidly, but from a very low base, and a significant change in
Kosovo’s remittance-dependent growth model is unlikely in the medium term.
