International Business Cooperation as an Opportunity to Increase Competitiveness and to Generate New Jobs: The Case of Kosovo
Purpose: With this paper, we aim to show the benefits of international business cooperation in Kosovo. Design/Methodology/Approach: We do this by providing an overview of the current international business cooperation in Kosovo, the policies and procedures and the conditions available. Findings: It is recommended that businesses in Kosovo intensify business cooperation since global competition compels corporations to increase competitiveness by lowering production costs. Internationally affirmed brand corporations manage to lower production costs by applying different forms of international business cooperation with business entities in developing countries Practical Implications: One of the forms of international business cooperation is cooperation with internationally affirmed brand corporations to reduce production costs. At the same time, businesses in developing countries realize the profits for themselves and contribute to reducing the level of unemployment in their countries. Originality/Value: Given the positive aspects of the manufacturing cooperation, we believe that it is important to determine and highlight the impact on the economy in Kosovo and to recommend changes if and where necessary so as to improve benefits for the country.
