Pristina, May 5 – Today, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced new assistance the United States government is providing Kosovo to further develop the nation’s highly competitive agricultural sector through grants to farmers and others within the agricultural value chain.

“Up to 60% of the population in Kosovo lives in rural areas, and it is critical that agriculture is further developed to enhance rural incomes. AGRO will build on the success of previous USAID agricultural programs to ensure that the sector provides a real living for the rural population, encouraging youth to remain in the community and see agriculture as an opportunity for business and not just for sustenance,” said USAID Mission Director Jim Hope.
