Greeks Invest in Albania

tromaktiko2720According to the Greek Embassy in Tirana, Greece ranked first in Foreign Direct Investment stock.

According to statistics acquired from the Central Bank of Albania, between  2008 and 2009 there was a decrease (10% and 3.3% respectively) in Greek Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), always related to the previous year. However, in 2010, an increase of 7.9% was observed in comparison to 2009.

Despite the increase in 2010, the share of the Greek FDI in relation to the total FDI in Albania, has been significantly reduced during the few last years. In 2007 it reached 42.48% while in 2010 it dropped to 27.42%. This decrease is mainly due to the increase of the total FDI in Albania.

Countries such as Italy, Austria and Canada systematically increase their share of FDI stock. The most dramatic increase is reported in the case of Canada, given that its share increased from 0.06% in 2007 to 10.61% in 2010.

The sectors in which Greeks mainly invest are: the bank sector, telecommunications, health care services, fuel, construction, information technology, production and marketing of building materials, legal, accounting and advisory services, food industry, textile and shoe-making.

  1. BIG PART OF GREEK INVESTMENTS, ARE POSITIONED IN TIRANA DURRES AREA, NOT IN NORTHERN EPIRUS. MOSTLY WORKER ARE ALBANIANS, WHEN GREEK POPULATION IN SOUTHERN BOREA IPIROS, ARE WORKING IN GREECE. THIS STRATEGY, HAS FAVORED POLITICIAN CORRUPTED IN GREECE, LISTA LAGARD, WHO HAVE SELL TO TIRANA, THE NORTHERN EPIRUS QUESTION, AND NOW WANTS TO PUT MARITIME BORDERS WITH THEIR BROTHERS IN IONIAN COAST.

  2. μπράβο σας, Χιμάρα, το ΠΑΣΟΚ και η ΝΔ, είναι οι μεγαλύτεροι προδότες, ο οποίος έχει δει την ιστορία του Ελληνισμού. Αθήνα διακόπτει όλες οι συντάξεις για τη Βόρειο Ήπειρο, απαιτεί στη συνέχεια να αποφασίσει και των συνόρων, προκειμένου να αφήσει άλλο για 100 χρόνια, τους αδελφούς τους στη Βόρειο Ήπειρο, στα χέρια της αλβανικής Ισλαμικής.

  3. This article has nothing to do with himara or any other issues you guys blethering lost of crap in my opinion. It is called Global Economy for a reason, and people will try to make money whenever they can.

  4. This opinion is made from Greek embassy Tirana, which is a “corrupted office” systematically of PASOK and ND diplomatic governance since 20 years, by that cared only to be advocate of the Greek investments and not to care for properties and the Greek population in Northern Epirus which are attacking from the Albanian mafia government. This opinion has no common with the attacked against our archbishop Janullatos, menaced by the Albanian nationalism. this opinion (Greeks Invest in Albania)
    is “lista Lagard”, money laundering from Greece of Greek politicians corrupted.
