Pristina, 25 September 2013-  Modern Business Practices can be characterized as deeply rooted in a “culture of contract.” Rapidly transforming transactional practices in Kosovo is vital to increasing economic growth and ensuring that Kosovo businesses engage with foreign partners on equal footing. Kosovo business practices, however, continue to be rooted in the tradition of the “Besa Shqipėtarit”, and the handshake deal.

The USAID Contract Law Enforcement (CLE) Program as part of its intensive public education and outreach to the business community holds an ongoing regular series of workshops and roundtables with business to improve Kosovo business transactional skills in order to bring them in line with international practice.  The business community benefits tremendously through increased knowledge, skills, and abilities gained in participation in very interactive small group workshops. A joint initiative of the USAID New Opportunities for Agriculture (NOA) Program and the USAID Contract Law Enforcement (CLE) Program gathered representatives of the agriculture sector’s business community, including food processors and collection centers to the roundtable “Put it on Paper”, on September 25, 2013.
