(Kjafasan, North Macedonia) To facilitate trade and transport and enhance cross-border cooperation between North Macedonia and Albania, the U.S. Government, through USAID, is assisting the customs administrations of both countries to develop a joint border crossing point at the largest crossing between them: Kjafasan – Qafë Thanë. Joint border crossings significantly reduce the time to move goods across borders, and establishing them is a critical step to better prepare these countries for economic integration into the EU.
