American Chamber index shows better climate business in Albania, highlights tax concerns
The index of the American Chamber of Commerce for business climate in Albania increased to 43.78 points this year, from 37.94 last year.
Indicators that have had the greatest improvement, are relations with the fiscal authorities and that of the business climate, which increased respectively by 12.3 and 11.2 points.
In total, all indicators have improved, with the exception of finding local staff, which reported a slight decline.
The high level of taxation continues to be the main concern, with 30.45 points, a slight improvement from last year.
The second biggest concern is related to the government bureaucracy indicator which a year ago was in third place.
US Ambassador Donald Lu, attending the presentation of the index, said that the truth is hard to listen, but Albania will see better days in the future.
Lu was referring to the justice reform, which would create greater opportunities for businesses and national investments in the country.
Minister of Economic Development, Milva Ekonomi, addressed the local and national importance that such surveys have in making appropriate changes to improve business climate in Albania.
Another important point in the survey was that of relations with the tax authority.
If we draw a comparison with a year ago, the percentage of those who think that the relationship with the tax authorities is bad, or very bad is significantly lower, at 14%, while the percentage of those who claim that relations are good increased to 52.7%.
