Knowing that most of the former Yugoslavia countries are in confinement from the 1991-1999 period, production processes have stagnated a lot. Public sector investments have been oriented in road infrastructure. Knowing that many branches of the former Yugoslavia’s companies for metal processing have been in Kosovo as well „Amortizatori”, „Zastava”, „Llamkos” and many others factories. Also, we must take in account the wrong policies of public sector investment. Then such an assessment would at least give an overview of the public sector’s investment potential due to the failure of the privatization process. The purpose of this paper is to present the possibilities of public sector investment in this field of metal forming production. The objective of the paper is to present the possibilities and give an explanation of whether it is worth investing in this sector by the public sector. Evaluation of such investments are made
with benefit/cost method. This method is adapted knowing that the in benefit-cost analysis method, a project is considered positive, when the net benefit associated with it exceeds its cost.

Key words

Public sector, metal forming, investment, benefit- cost method.
