“The BoA expects Albania’s growth trend to continue in 2016”
FIAA: What are current economic indicators telling you about the state of the economy in Albania?
Mr. Sejko: Economic growth was 2.98 % in the third quarter of 2015. Our estimate of growth for the full year 2015 is 2.7 %, compared to 2.0% in 2014 and 1.3% in 2013. For 2016 we forecast growth above 3.0%, which means a moderate growing trend. This is positive for Albania, especially considering the current difficult economic environment in the region and the eurozone.
