Berisha: Corridor 8 should pass through Albania
During the session of debate held yesterday in Brussels in the Foreign Policy Commission, the Albanian Prime Minister asked that corridor 8 should expand to Albania as well, as it was foreseen before.I would like to stress that Albania is facing serious difficulties, with an inappropriate infrastructure. In this context, the approval of the IPA and its increase is a huge help for us, and I would estimated the large European infrastructure projects like corridor 8 go through even our region, said the prime minister during his word. The head of executive made this declaration, while speaking in the frame of reforms and achievements that government has reached in the economic field. The tax of the small-size business was halved; the social insurance tax was reduced with 31 per cent; taxes for the imported machinery were abolished; the registration time was reduced from 42 to 8 days, and the registr Berisha: Corridor 8 should pass through Albaniaation cost was reduced as well. We reduced the price of the electric power for the business by 33 per cent. So the preliminary results are promising. There is a significant increase of demand. The economic growth is going up to 6 per cent; the crediting level is expected to increase 120 per cent, he said. On the other hand, Berisha said the Balkans region, with the commitment of the USA and EU countries, is transformed from a region of war and cruel conflicts that was before to a region of friendship collaboration and regional and European integration. On the other hand, speaking about the reforms undertaken in the economic field, Berisha said the law on the legalisation is a great victory, which along with the new law that is to be approved soon for the compensation of ex-owners, gives an end to the ownership reform in Albania. According to the Prime Minister, this law opens the way to the market economy and immovable properties, providing a huge financial asset to the countrys economy.
