Albania

Albania has developed from being the poorest country in Europe to a candidate for accession to the European Union (EU) in a very short time.

Enhancing agricultural competitiveness is one of the main priorities of the Albanian Government. This sector generates 20 per cent of the gross domestic product, and the figure is rising. Nearly half of the work power  in rural areas are employed  in agriculture.

With its favorable conditions, Albania is a rising candidate for Europe’s future agriculture and has also caught the attention of international investors.

The limited use of fertilizers and pesticides creates opportunities for organic agriculture.  Opportunities also exist for the production and processing of high-value cash crops.

The rich historical past and diverse landscapes of Albania are a further bonus for each visitor.

Tirana, the first capital city Kruja, UNESCO world heritage Gijrokatra, Butrint and Berat, Lake Ohrid and Durres are are a few of the places you might want to see.

The destination can be easily combined with programs in Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro or other countries of the Balkan region.
