Kosovo: National Income

Volume 494: debated on Wednesday 17 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what his latest estimate is of Kosovo’s (a) gross national income and (b) average earnings per head of population; and if he will make a statement. (279613)

Kosovo’s statistical systems remain in an early stage of development and all data are therefore subject to high degree of uncertainty. Estimates for gross national income and average earnings per head are not available. However, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimated that in 2007 Kosovo’s gross national disposable income per capita was €1,845. This is projected to increase to €2,053 per capita in 2009, though may have to be adjusted depending on the impact of the global economic crisis. The gross domestic product per capita was listed as €1,611 for 2007 and €1,837 for 2009.
