Economy[eedit | eedit soorce]

For a lang time the economy o Kosovo wis based on retail industrie fueled bi remittance income comin frae a lairge nummer o immigrant commonties in Wastren Europe. Private enterprise, maistly sma business, is slowly emerging food processin. Private businesses, like elsewhare in Kosovo, predominantly face difficulties acause o lack o structural capacity tae grow.

Many restaurants, private retail stores, an service-relatit businesses operate oot o sma shops. Lairger grocery an depairtment stores hae recently opened. In toun, thare are aicht sizeable mercats, includin three produce mercats, ane caur mercat, ane cattle mercat, an three personal/hygienic an hoose wares mercats. There is an abundance o kiosks sellin sma guids. Prizren appears to be teeming wi economic prosperity, but appearances are deceivin as the internaitional presence is reducit an repatriation o refugees an internally displacit persons is spectit tae further strain the local economy. Mercat saturation, heich unemployment, an a reduction o financial remittances frae abroad are ominous economic indicators.[2]

There are three agricultural co-operatives in three veelages. Maist livestock breedin an agricultural production is private, informal, an sma-scale. There are five operational banks wi branches in Prizren, the Micro Enterprise Bank (MEB), the Raiffeisen Bank, the Nlb Bank, the Teb Bank an the Payment and Banking Authority of Kosovo (BPK).[2]
