U.S. Embassy Statement

As it stands today, the circumstances in regard to the Duty Free space at Tirana International Airport show the challenges foreign investors face in Albania.  It is disappointing that the current business climate hinders increased foreign investment.  Albania must apply a set of fair, transparent rules equally to all businesses.  We hope the Government of Albania will take a serious look at the challenges in the current environment and implement tangible change to attract much needed foreign investment.
