Summary:

Kosovo’s economy is slowing, although it continues to display resilience overall. The banking sector remains well capitalized, liquid, and profitable, notwithstanding a recent increase in nonperforming loans. The main downside risk to the outlook remains a possible deterioration in labor market conditions. To safeguard primary fiscal balance target by year-end, the authorities have pre-identified spending cuts. The authorities are pursuing further initiatives to strengthen competitiveness, attract investment from abroad, and promote the development of a tradable sector.
