Post-war Kosovo saw the successful establishment of a business register modeled after the solution earlier implemented in Macedonia. This critical initiative, involving the transfer of 120,000 manual registrations, greatly improved transparency and efficiency in the business sector, promoting economic growth.
Following the aftermath of the war in Kosovo in 1999, the international community embarked on the monumental task of rebuilding Kosovo as a nation and establishing key financial infrastructures. In line with these efforts, the Kosovo Business Register was developed, drawing inspiration from the successful implementation of the Macedonian Business Register.
Aside from a new IT system with procedures and organizational resources. the project included transfer of registrations to the new business register, a process that encompassed approximately 120,000 business registrations. This comprehensive endeavor paved the way for the opening of the register in spring 2003, signifying a significant step forward in promoting a transparent and organized business environment in Kosovo.
