Effective modes of transport for goods, people and services such as quality of roads, railroads, ports and air transport enable entrepreneurs to get their goods to market in a secure and timely manner and facilitate labour market adjustments. The aim is this paper is to assess the impact of infrastructure for economic competitiveness in Kosovo using the competitiveness methodological approach. The study relies on both static and dynamic qualitative and quantitative data.
