Socialist MP Alqi Bllako: Agriculture, tourism, digital economy and energy are the pillars that we will build the economy of the future in Albania

Socialist MP Alqi Bllako: Agriculture, tourism, digital economy and energy are

The marathon plenary session started yesterday at 10:00 and ended this morning at 06.37. After the presentation of the governing program by the Prime Minister Edi Rama, his ministers answered the questions of the deputies for the projects made public, while the session continued with the debates on the program. The focus of the program was the increase of salaries and pensions, investments in infrastructure, but also the strengthening of the role of women. Meanwhile, after the discussions, the new government "Rama 3" was put to a vote, which received the vote of confidence of the parliament to start working with the third governing mandate. With 77 votes in favor, 53 against and 1 abstention, the new government and its governing program were approved. But for the effects of time, there were many MPs who withdrew their word. One of them was the socialist deputy of Tirana, Alqi Bllako,

Here is the word of the SP deputy, Alqi Bllako: Honorable Mrs. Speaker of the Assembly, Honorable Mr. Prime Minister, Distinguished members of the Cabinet, Distinguished fellow MPs, Distinguished citizens, We are at the beginning of a mandate that is at least historic, not only in relation to the development opportunities before us, but mostly in relation to the chance to giving each other trust; doing what is possible to place the interest of Albania and Albanians beyond the narrowly partisan interest. In a very short time we had to face together, as Albanians, two blows that would have brought everyone to their knees and despite the divisions we have in terms of management, no one can deny the solidarity among Albanians that is strongly displayed. how many times we need each other and it is indisputable this solidarity that is needed in this hall; for no matter how much we deny hiding or avoiding, we need each other and the country needs us to cooperate. To my surprise, and perhaps to many, the word collaboration has recently taken on a negative connotation that you can hardly find elsewhere, building a direct correlation between collaboration and shopping. Of course this translation of the word collaboration would not be in anyone’s best interest and would not produce any added value. To cooperate or reach an agreement means to debate first. To debate development alternatives that can undoubtedly be asymmetrical, but that can carry within them ideas that integrate well. The 5 principles on which the governing program of the Socialist Party is built are, I believe, universally accepted, while what can divide us into ideas by fostering a healthy and constructive debate is the way we can implement these principles. This is a road with many ramifications and without an absolute truth, so we have the chance to give Albanians the opportunity to judge us not on swearing and insults, but on the arguments of which rapprochement offers the most comprehensive development and is the right one to follow. . For years now, a mostly rhetorical debate has been intensively held in this room, regarding the support of a progressive or flat tax system for personal income tax, turning this debate into a moral and ethical human issue, as well as forgetting in almost every case the economic aspect based on empirical data. We, like many other countries have had the opportunity to test both of these systems, hence and there are endless empirical data, which fortunately do not know how to lie, and which clearly testify to a more positive and much less distorting effect in relation to the development of the progressive system. This certainly does not come from an illogical desire to punish success, or those who gain more, but as many well-consolidated economic theories explain it quite clearly; this is related to maximizing the simultaneous benefit of both groups, those earning less and those earning higher, under a progressive regime. It may sound utopian, but it is empirically proven that the aggregate benefit of the one who earns more is maximized if the one who earns less pays less. Of course, since there is still much room for debate here in terms of the degree of progressiveness, as in this case there is no magic formula to determine an optimal level, so any exchange of ideas or analysis with colleagues in opposition would really help the process of optimism. This is the cooperation that Albanians expect, and not the bargain that is articulated without basis. Albania continues to be one of the countries with the lowest ratio, in terms of total tax revenues in relation to Gross Domestic Product, but we still have much room to debate with each other on the type or level of taxation in in order to maximize the impact of developing fiscal policy and minimize the distortions that each tax itself causes. Today we have all the opportunities, thanks to the proper support of the strategic sectors to guarantee not only a sustainable economic growth, but what matters most is to guarantee inclusive economic growth, where all segments of society benefit uniformly making it possible for the gap between those who earn more and those who earn less to narrow. Therefore, the focus of this governing program is mostly on those sectors, which are already the engine of the country's economic development and have all the potential to turn us into a net exporting country, guaranteeing increased paid employment and consequently increased welfare. general. Agriculture, Tourism, Manufacturing, Digital Economy and Energy are the pillars on which we will jointly build the economy of the future. Without wanting to fall into the repetition of direct support, that the government has planned for these sectors as well as all investments in the necessary supporting infrastructure whether road, air, rail or sea, we as legislators have the important mission that thanks to a quality debate to influence to accelerate these development processes. But above all I wish and wish very much that we today be the example for those thousands of young people, who are probably curiously following us or listening to us from their mobile screens. That we inspire these thousands of young people today to believe; that thanks to their work, dedication and indisputability thanks to their talent Albania is the place where they should design and build their future. I wish success to Prime Minister Rama and the new government cabinet in this new term.
