15th January 2014: First OeKG meeting of this year

Vlora Deshishku is the owner of the ELAA sh.p.k. She is the retailer partner of Swarovski for Kosovo since 2010. Vlora was in our meeting as a guest speaker to talk about the  challenges that she faced when she started the company here and the benefits working with a big foreign company in Kosovo.


Andreas Fritz:

Opportunities, benefits and challenges for Austrian companies in Kosovo”

An overview was presented covering the experiences, challenges, problems and

successes of business activities during the past 10 years.

Most notably the presentation focused upon the obstacles and challenges faced by

foreign investors wishing to establish themselves in Kosovo, but also

highlighted the clear advantages and positive progress during more recent years

(favourable business and investment climate).  Furthermore some negative aspects

and problematic developments were examined (ie., increasing levels of dense

bureaucracy, customs regime, etc.).

In closing, the potential for investment was re-emphasised, in particular within

the energy sector
