Albania is one of the first exporters in the region. For the first 6 months of 2021, the total export of agricultural products has increased by 17% compared to a year ago. In an interview for TVSH, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture Dhimo Kote emphasizes that this year has been great for domestic production, thus being present in the countries of the region and the European Union.
According to the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, the pandemic has brought a decline in purchasing power in the country and this has affected the decline of businesses. But according to Kote the prices of agricultural products are normal and have a standard according to the general market. So far in our country there are about 150 collection points for fruits and vegetables who deal with exports. The government aims to triple the planted areas.
