Sustainable economic development for Balkan economies can be achieved by implementing new management techniques, sophisticated business operations, stabile macroeconomic environment and regional political stability. This paper is exploring outsourcing business activities in Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Bulgaria and Greece comparing their capabilities to import and manage new business practices. The theoretical framework for outsourcing activities has recognized positive macroeconomic impact from this economic practice into economies that had liberalized their market economies and realized new business practices. The practice of outsourcing should be understood as a new form of competition facilitated by technological innovations, information technology, Internet and new management practice. Empirically, this paper will research global economic benefits and costs of outsourcing, for each of these economies separately, thus providing abilities to compare Balkan economies from absorptive capacity point of view. The main effect is to improve economic welfare by introducing and realizing new business practices and new management techniques in the Balkans region.
