 Ethnic Albanians living in Montenegro and North Macedonia no longer need to apply for work permission in order to work in Albania - part of a government initiative to boost ties between Albanians in the region.

Starting this week, the ethnic Albanians from Montenegro and North Macedonia now have the same access to jobs in Albania as natives, according to a decision taken by the Prime Minister Edi Rama's cabinet, which was made public on Monday.

"Albanians from Montenegro and North Macedonia will enjoy the right of the employment, just as Albanian citizens, unless the cases the employment is relates]d to the Albanian citizenship, in accordance with the legislation in force," the Ministry of Finance and Economy said in a statement .

Foreign Minister Gent Cakaj said the decision, which was officially approved on May 10, meant that Albanians from Montenegro and North Macedonia now have the same rights to work in the country as Albanians from Kosovo and the Preševo Valley in Serbia.

The Albanian government abolished work permits for Albanians from Kosovo and the Presevo Valley in May 2014.

"Although it may seem like a move without a direct impact or may sound like a completely symbolic initiative, this is a necessary step towards increasing ties with Albanians in neighboring countries indiscriminately," Cakaj wrote on Facebook on Monday.
