Czech project Aid for Trade 2017 - Business plans for small and medium-sized enterprises in Kosovo

On 22 November 2017 the Czech company GEOtest introduced the results of the project "Assistance in the development of business plans for small and medium-sized enterprises in Kosovo". The project was implemented within the Czech Foreign Development Cooperation under the Aid for Trade Program 2017 funded by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic in cooperation with Kosovo Chamber of Commerce. The results of the project will serve to small and medium-sized enterprises in Kosovo when creating their business strategies.

The expert seminar along with the project presentation were attended by Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Trade and Industry Mr. Faton Thaçi, President of Kosovo Chamber of Commerce Mr. Safet Gërxhaliu, Diplomat of the Czech Embassy in Pristina Mr. Vítězslav Pur and by 70 public and business representatives in the hotel Sirius Conference Center. Deputy minister Mr. Thaçi highly appreciated the support of the Czech Foreign Development Cooperation. He also informed the present guests about the plans of the Kosovar government concerning the support of SMEs companies in order to improve their business and to reduce different obstacles. President of the Chamber of Commerce Mr. Gërxhaliu highly praised the benefits of the Czech project for SMEs companies, which is an important methodological tool in planning business activities.

The main outputs of the project were presented at the seminar, i.e. the website prepared in Albanian and English (www.oek-biznesplan.org), which also includes an online version of the handbook on how to create business plans, including an instruction video. The promotional video with several examples of Kosovo businessmen who have developed their businesses with their own business plans was also featured on the website. The company Alchemy Capital has also been involved in the project and in the web presentation.

The aim of the project is to improve the business situation in general and to increase the potential of small and medium-sized enterprises in Kosovo. This should be done through the implementation of the project activities, in particular by sharing experience and modern practice in developing business plans. Following the successful cooperation within the project the GEOtest Company and the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce a Memorandum of Understanding was signed.
