Kosovo Business Park: Calls for Expressions of Interest

Prishtinë, October 18, 2007 – The Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME) Support Agency of Kosovo, which is an Executive Agency of the Ministry of Trade and Industry has published a Call for Expressions of Interest from Companies wishing to locate at the Business Park in Drenas.

The planned business park of Drenas is located around 20km from the capital Prishtina and 5km from the Prishtina International Airport. The park will consist of 130 hectares, making it one of the most exciting developments in the region. The establishment of this Business Park coincides with a number of other developments such as the construction of the highway from Albania to Kosovo as well as the settlement of the political status of Kosovo.

The park will include a number of specific zones including:

– Flagship Manufacturing Zone;

– Domestic Incubator Zone;

– Warehousing and Distribution Zone;

– Office Zone;

– Hotel and Conference Zone;

– Food Zone;

– Retail and Service Zone.

The master plan for the entire zone is in preparation and much of the infrastructure for the first phase is already in place. Early participants in the project will be provided with “first mover advantage” benefits once demand is assessed.

The business park will provide modern, fully serviced facilities with all necessary supporting infrastructure, including water and electricity supply, sewerage and waste disposal. Flexible occupancy options will be available, including rental or purchase of either standard units or custom-built premises.

Interested parties are invited to contact the SME Support Agency for a registration form to register for an Information Pack when it becomes available and an invitation to an information seminar. For further information visit: http://www.sme-ks.org/
