About Albania

Since 1992, the U.S. Government has delivered foreign aid to support Albania’s development, stability and integration into Europe. U.S. aid has helped Albania transition from the most isolated and repressive communist state in Europe to a democracy with a market-oriented economy.
The current program works with the Government of Albania and the private sector on transformational reforms to strengthen democratic institutions and sustain economic growth. Specifically, USAID helps Albania to:
  • Strengthen rule of law by building the skills of lawyers and judges, and ensuring that courts function properly
  • Increase the ability of local governments to raise revenue and provide more effective services to citizens in areas ranging from health care to clean water
  • Improve business competitiveness while strengthening the financial sector to better support economic development and financial security
