Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of govern­ment spending on the volume of production and the export of agricultural products from Kosovo. For that purpose, secondary data sources from rel­evant state institutions were used. Based on these data, calculations of the coefficient of determination and the correlation coefficient were made in order to determine whether and to what extent government expenditures in Kosovo affect the volume of agricultural production and exports of ag­ricultural products. Based on the obtained results, it can be concluded that government expenditures for the agricultural sector have almost no impact and do not contribute to increased production and export of agricultural products. The fact that the import of agricultural products in Kosovo is far greater than the export of agricultural products speaks even more in favour of this thesis.
