Albania and Kosovo among the poorest of Europe in 2022 according to IMF

 Albania's per capita income in 2022 is expected to reach $ 6,206, down from $ 4,520 in 2017, according to statistics published by the International Monetary Fund.

Though growing, it is not enough to pass the other states, leaving it again among the poorest countries of Europe. In 2022, our country will be ranked 100th in the world per capita income, leaving behind in Europe Kosovo, Bosnia, Moldova and Ukraine.

According to comparative data for the Western Balkans region, the country with the highest income in 2022 will be Montenegro, with almost $ 9,100, followed by Serbia, with $ 8,011 and Macedonia, with about $ 7100.

Albania is expected to pass to Bosnia, which in 2022 is expected to have a per capita income of about $ 5.800. While Kosovo will continue to be the poorest in the Balkans, with $ 4,300.

While the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in a recent report assessing the convergence of the Western Balkans with the standard EU living, has claimed that Albania and the Balkans may take up to 60 years (with the scenario optimistic) to 200 years (with the pessimistic scenario) to reach the EU's average income.
