Informal Employment in Albania goes to about 40 percent

 The informal employment in Albania is about 39%. In the Balkans, Croatia has the lowest percentage of informal work, with about 19%. In Bulgaria, which is a member of the European Union, the informal employment is estimated at 27%. In Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina the informal employment is respectively 30 and 37% respectively.

Montenegro has an informal work as much as Albania with 39%.

In Serbia the informal employment is estimated at 51%.

In Turkey and Kosovo has been found that the informal labor is relatively high compared to other countries in the region. In Turkey it measures about 75% and in Kosovo as much as 81% of the labor market.

This is one of the findings presented during the workdshop organized today in Tirana by the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) Platform for Employment and Social Affairs.

This is a project that has been implemented by RCC since three years in the countries of the region. The project is funded by regional funds and the beneficiaries were the respective ministries of the countries of the region.

The existence of the informal economy and informal employment has been identified by the European Commission and other international agencies as a barrier to enable economic prosperity in Albania.

The result of this three-year work has been the drafting of a report on Albania identifying the causes of undeclared work, the institutional framework and the current policy approach.

The report shows that the informal economy in Albania is being treated to some extent by combating fiscal evasion and promoting fiscal compliance, but the informal economy and informal employment are not being addressed comprehensively.
