Cerar to travel to Albania with strong business delegation


Companies from other sectors dealing with environmental issues (such as energy, engineering, construction, banking, IT, cooling system and health) will also be represented.

The delegation will build on last year's visit to Albania, when Economic Development and Technology Minister Zdravko Počivalšek led the Slovenian delegation.

Business executives want to again present Slovenia's skills, solutions and business proposals for strengthening cooperation in numerous areas.

Slovenia's annual trade with Albania tops EUR 50m, with Slovenia's exports dominating the deals. Last year, the country exported EUR 47.46m worth of goods and services to Albania, while it imported EUR 5.65m.

Slovenia mostly exports medicine, food products, cars and machines to the country, while it imports mineral oils and vegetables.

Slovenia's FDI in Albania stands at EUR 4m. But Slovenian environmental companies are very interested in projects in Albania, which struggles in this field. This is also one of the areas that has been hindering its EU accession.
