These constitute the largest private investment in Kosovo after the war, reaching a value above 100 million EURO.

This major project is one of the most successful models of Public-Private Partnerships in the region, which is being used as a base of knowledge for implementation of many other infrastructure projects in Kosovo.

Through this method, it is expected to activate significant potential that Kosovo has, to help economic development, and specifically to show that Kosovo is a safe and attractive environment for private capital.
