In an opinion poll organized by “Novus Consulting”, 65% of respondents have declared that they prefer domestic products.

Visar Kelmendi, head of the Kosovo’s Producers Association, said that the opinion poll aimed at finding out what is the perception of consumers on domestic products and domestic producers.

“It’s been 16 years that the perception of consumers in Kosovo for the quality of producers is in favor of imported products. We are trying to identify the reasons and the cause of this perception. We also want to know what can producers do to change this perception”, Kelmendi said.

Meanwhile, Agon Nixha of Novus Consulting declared that the results of the poll show that 65% of respondents have said that they use domestic products, while 35% said that they use foreign products.

Respondents also said that consumption of domestic products has increased compared to last year.

Consumers say that the main reason why they consume domestic products is patriotism, but they believe that it is the low quality what deters them from domestic products.

98% of respondents said that consumption of domestic products will help economic development. /ibna/
