USAID’s FY 2014 – FY 2018 Strategy is designed to support the achievement of the USG’s central foreign policy objective of peace and stability in the Balkans. In order for Kosovo to become a successful nation, it will have to build the capacity of its governing institutions, strengthen its economy, and improve the education and skills of its citizens. Only by achieving these interconnected objectives will Kosovo be able to integrate into Western European and Trans-Atlantic structures, while ensuring prosperity and stability at home for all of its people.
