Albania - Needs Grants for Development
The south-eastern European nation has not been really in the best of terms with peace and accord. Albania has constantly faced inner strife, struggle for power and corruption has been at its highest which has stalled the nation from steady economic and educational progress.
Maximum of the workers are emigrants here. The labor force is pretty strong and the unemployment rate has been gradually dropping. The employment is mostly related with agriculture even though it hasn?t been very productive to the national economy.
There have been efforts to bring a well-structured education system in Albania. Most government schools face dearth for text books even though elementary education is compulsory. There is huge difference between the rich schools and the schools for the middle and lower-class people. The mediocre schools are not able to provide students maximum infrastructure and necessary equipments needed to compete with the curriculum.
Even though there have been efforts to improve technology and increase employment, Albania is one of the poorest countries in the world. Regardless the number problems faced by the nation, the people are wonderful, and so is the nature of Albania.
The climate is moderate and dry during summer time. The winters are wet and cold and the interiors are also cold and much wetter. The country spread with mountains and hills while the plains touch the coast line.
Steps are being taken to improve infrastructure, road and rail networks in the country. Most of the help comes from the European Union.
For electricity they are dependent on the hydro power project. There is not much business development in Albania and also the state fails to attract any foreign investments because of inadequate energy resources.
Albania is a candidate for the European Union and is making slow progress and the unemployment rate is still very high.
