New Report Available: Albania Country Risk Report Q4 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Aug 30 2015

Albania will remain attached to a relatively low growth trajectory over the coming years, amidst weak private consumption and government fiscal consolidation efforts.

More efforts need to be made to implement structural reforms aimed at tackling corruption and improving labour market flexibility, if Albania is to have any hope of converging with historically more developed regional peers.

Albania's large and entrenched trade balance shortfall will ensure that the country's current account remains firmly in deficit over the coming years.

Uncertainty in neighbouring Greece throughout the country's 2015 debt crisis will increase the scope for regional instability. It will also weigh on demand for Albanian exports to Greece and remittances inflows from Albanian workers based in Greece.

Key Risks To Outlook

Flooding in February 2015 could weigh on real GDP growth more than we currently forecast. This could happen through two main channels. The first is that damaged agricultural crops could weigh on the incomes of the significant proportion of Albanians employed in the agricultural sector. The second is that the Albanian government may have to spend more money repairing flood damaged buildings and infrastructure. We wait before more data on the impacts of the floods becomes available before adjusting any of our forecasts.
