Business is threatened more than ever, says leader of opposition in Albania

Tirana, October 28, 2014/Independent Balkan News Agency

Leader of the Democratic Party and mayor of Tirana, Lulzim Basha, held a meeting today with women entrepreneurs, where he reiterated the engagement of the municipality to support these women.

He declared that the fund which aimed at supporting youth, has not only supported them, but young women entrepreneurs too.

“Facilitating measures to do business is the best way to support and facilitate business. Unfortunately today, to do business requires great courage, because 90% of Albanians struggle for survival. Economy today is performing badly, business is more threatened than ever and citizens are poorer than ever”, said Basha.

The head of DP said that today, it’s even worse raising the voice, as the rule of law is being replaced by a police regime.

According to him, the government is not able to collect power supply bills and increases its price. Basha said that the government promised a drop in the price of fuel, while its price has increased and will further increase, by leading to a rising cost of transport. /ibna/
