WB encourages the development of agriculture

1. May 2008

 The threat which Albania is being subject to, as a result of the world wide crises of prices, has led to the World Bank to carry out a study which has concluded that Albania has the lowest agricultural productivity compared to not only EU countries but also to countries which are going through the same transitional period. According the WB if the surface of agricultural land goes up by 10%, than the gross agricultural productivity would go up by 5%, and this would encourage farmers to modernize the technology that they use. The problems with the agricultural production are at the present being discouraged by the legal problems that exist in Albania with the property ownerships.
