What to do in Albania
The Economy of Albania has undergone a transition from its Communist past into an open-market economy since the early 1990s. The country is rich in natural resources, and the economy is mainly bolstered by agriculture, food processing, lumber, oil, cement, chemicals, mining, basic metals, hydro power, tourism, textile industry, and petroleum extraction. As of 2014, exports seemed to be gaining momentum and had increased 300% from 2008, although their contribution to the gross domestic product was still moderate. Albania has the second largest oil deposits in the Balkans and the largest onshore oil reserves in Europe.
