The web portal www.kosovoapparel.org brings together Kosovo apparel sector information in a single online platform, which serves as “landing page” for interested businesses and potential clients. The portal provides general information on doing business and investing in Kosovo, and on Kosovo apparel subsectors, and links to individual web pages of producers, designers, agents, business associations, and other relevant institutions.Pristina, June 13, 2016 – A new specialized web portal will promote the Kosovo apparel industry as a destination in the world map of apparel producers.
The development of the web portal follows the establishment of the Kosovo Apparel Marketing Association (KAMA), which was supported by the USAID EMPOWER Private Sector project, to help the sector expand its sales, especially into export markets.
“This portal will enable the entire Kosovo apparel sector find foreign business partners and buyers,” said USAID Mission Director James Hope at the launch event. “We are proud to have partnered with KAMA in developing one of the first industry-specific web portals in Kosovo.”
The portal serves as the “virtual face” of the Kosovo apparel sector, and will channel efforts to increase market awareness, promote Kosovo textile products, increase sector sales, and thereby create new jobs. The web portal is managed by KAMA.
EMPOWER Private Sector, is a five-year project designed to stimulate large-scale job creation by elevating the competitiveness of Kosovo firms. The project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), and is implemented by Cardno Emerging Markets USA, Ltd.
