Kosovo’s Youth Are Working to Create Their Own Economy
Although Europe’s newest country has outperformed its neighbors in economic growth, it remains poor, with a youth unemployment rate over 50 percent. That’s a problem because Kosovo also has one of Europe’s youngest populations: 53 percent of its citizens are under 25. Currently the service sector, which makes up more than 60 percent of Kosovo’s economy, offers the most opportunity. But incubators are also encouraging young entrepreneurs of all kinds to create their own businesses and pitch investors, pushing young workers out of cafés and into the workforce.
