DASH "excites" Albania, the strong reaction comes from the Democratic Party
Written by SOT.COM.AL 6 Gusht 2022
The Democratic Party has reacted after the report published by the US State Department on the investment climate in Albania. In a statement to the media, DP vice president Luciano Boci said that this report has confirmed all the denunciations made earlier by the blue headquarters. Boçi adds that foreign investors do not find Albania suitable for doing business as they are hindered by endemic corruption and unfair competition.
Statement by the President of the DP Luciano Boçi:
The US State Department's report on the investment climate is another certificate of shame for Edi Rama and his government. The findings expressed there could well be taken as the text for a manual on corruption. The Democratic Party notes, with pain and reconfirmation, that what is said in the American report we have been trumpeting for so long from this pulpit. With pain because we cannot be happy when we hear bad things about our country, in Albanian or English, whatever. With reconfirmation because, in an environment where the government has captured all the powers, the voice of reason and truth, which we try to articulate from this pulpit and in other forms, is rarely heard and often ignored. We will continue our course of articulation to save Albania from the danger posed by this government. Hoping that the text of the American and European reports will meet, as soon as possible, with the language of the relevant actors here in Tirana. What is said in this State Department report is briefly listed below:
- Foreign investors perceive Albania as a difficult place to do business.
-Investors mention endemic corruption, in the judiciary and public procurement, unfair competition, the informal economy, frequent changes in fiscal legislation and weak implementation of contracts
- The continued use of PPP contracts has reduced opportunities for competition, including foreign investors, in infrastructure and other sectors.
"Weak cost-benefit analyzes and the lack of technical expertise in the drafting and monitoring of PPP contracts are constant concerns".
- American investors encounter corruption and informal business practices.
-Property rights continue to be a challenge in Albania, because a clear title is difficult to obtain.
-Ka pasur raste të individëve që dyshohet se kanë manipuluar sistemin gjyqësor për të marrë tituj të paligjshëm të tokës. Mbivendosja e titujve të pronësisë është një çështje serioze dhe e zakonshme.
-Procesi i kompensimit për tokat e konfiskuara nga ish-regjimi komunist vazhdon të jetë i rëndë, joefikas dhe i pamjaftueshëm.
-Shqipëria vazhdon të ketë rezultate të dobëta në Indeksin e Perceptimit të Korrupsionit të Transparency International.
-Shqipëria vazhdon të renditet ulët në Indeksin Global të Inovacionit, e 84-a nga 132 vende.
Këto janë përfundime të Departamentit të Shtetit. Por ato nuk i bën të vërteta fakti se vijnë nga Uashingtoni. Janë të vërteta sepse ju, të nderuar qytetarë, i ndeshni çdo ditë kur trokisni në zyrat e shtetit dhe jua hapin sekserët.
A day ago in a report, the US Department of State ranked Albania as one of the countries that has very good legislation for business, but for foreign investors it is not what it should be. The report highlights the problem with corruption, especially in the field of justice, the issue of ownership and unequal competition. It mentions the informal economy as well as frequent changes in fiscal legislation.
