Indrit Cenaj


Many different economical studies have been realized in Albania these last years. This study provides some economical data about projects realized during years 2007-2013 in Albania. EU is open to all European countries according to Article 49 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which constitutes the legal basis for any accession. Under this Article of the Treaty, any European State, which respects the values of democracy and rule of law and is committed to promoting them, may apply to become a member of the Union. There are several steps undertaken, before a country becomes a Member State (MS) of the EU. So, before being a MS a country can have a “potential candidate status”, “candidate status”, and “accession status” and then become e Member State of EU. Currently, Macedonia, Turkey, Island, Croatia and Montenegro are candidate countries. Meanwhile, Albania, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina are potential candidate countries. A special relation exists between EU and Kosovo. Before a country applies for membership, it signs an agreement with European Union, which aims to prepare the country for candidacy and eventual membership. This agreement is mainly a set of duties and rights strongly related to the Copenhagen criteria. In the case of Western Balkans, this agreement is called “Stabilization and Association Agreement” which is signed with each country. This economical data will presented for the first time in this scientific international activity, since it is a recent study.
