Within the process of democratization, modernization and development that is currently going on in the Balkan region, Albania is called upon to play a fundamental and delicate role, also due to its geographical location. To be up to this role, Albania should be equipped with an adequately dimensioned and efficient transport system, well connected with those of the neighbouring countries. In this article, we first make a critical assessment of the governance structure of the transport sector in Albania, ranging from railway, road and local public transport to maritime and air transport. We then provide guidelines for the sequel of the restructuring process, arguing that they are suitable not only for Albania, but also for all other Balkan countries.

Abstract

Within the process of democratization, modernization and development that is currently going on in the Balkan region, Albania is called upon to play a fundamental and delicate role, also due to its geographical location. To be up to this role, Albania should be equipped with an adequately dimensioned and efficient transport system, well connected with those of the neighbouring countries. In this article, we first make a critical assessment of the governance structure of the transport sector in Albania, ranging from railway, road and local public transport to maritime and air transport. We then provide guidelines for the sequel of the restructuring process, arguing that they are suitable not only for Albania, but also for all other Balkan countries.
