After decades of centralised planning and control Albania is slowly working at its transformation into a market economy. Its GNI per capita has increased from US $ 2080 in 2005 to US $ 4700 in 2015.

Albania’s WB Doing Business ranking has improved significantly from 117th in 2006 to 68th in 2016. E.g. progress was made in the construction sector where it used to take 331 days to obtain a licence back in 2006, while in 2015 it would take 228 days.

DECP’s partner in Albania is the Confederation BIZNESALBANIA (BA). Over the past few years DECP has first and foremost assisted BA in getting the statutes of the new confederation adopted and registered at the court of Tirana. Recently, DECP was instrumental in BA’s joining the International Organisation of Employers (IOE).

In view of progress made and the fact that Albania is a candidate for accession to the European Union the cooperation between DECP and BA will terminate by the end of 2016.
