Recent trends in Albania suggest that it
has the potential for a modern and competitive agricultural
sector, provided there is sufficient private investment and
the right policy environment. This chapter looks at the role
of agriculture in the economy and the current status of the
sector, and outlines the implications of modernization and
transformation of agriculture for rural areas. It also
identifies trends and sources of growth for agriculture, and
concludes by presenting the key policy challenges for the
sector. The rest of this report analyzes the challenges
facing the agricultural sector and recommends policies for
addressing them. These challenges are analyzed in greater
detail, and more specific policy recommendations are given
in the following chapters, which focus on strengthening
supply chains, improving food safety, and ensuring that
reforms are carried out in compliance with EU legislation.
The final chapter looks at how well public expenditures in
agriculture are managed in order to achieve these policy objectives.
