Low trade volumes between Kosovo and Albania

The constant border barriers between Kosovo and Albania have hindered the growth of trade volume between the two countries.

In the past few years, Albanian customs have imposed barriers to prevent Kosovo’s exports from entering the country and as a result, Kosovo’s authorities have reacted the same.

Based on the data issued by the Kosovo Agency of Statistics, during the month of September this year, Kosovo’s exports to Albania amounted to 5.8 million euros, while in the same period a year ago, exports were 4.1 million euros.

Meanwhile, Albania’s exports to Kosovo amounted to 12.8 million euros, while during the same period a year ago, these exports were 9.4 million euros.

Economy experts in Kosovo say that trade volumes between the two countries are very low, despite constant efforts to boost them./IBNA
