Kosovo has the highest unemployment rate in the Western Balkans, the World Bank and Vienna Institute for Internal Economic Studies said in a report published on Tuesday.

The report said that the overall unemployment rate in the region dropped from 16.2 to 15.3 percent. The unemployment rates range from 12 percent in Albania and Serbia to 29 percent in Kosovo.

It said that the region is undergoing a long-term drop in unemployment from 1.5 million in 2011 to 776,000 in the second quarter of 2018.  

The report said that despite the drop, the unemployment rates in the region are still two or three times higher than in European Union member states.
