The plan for the growth of the Western Balkans is the most ambitious mechanism proposed by the European Commission since the beginning of the European integration process, which will potentially change the region and accelerate the movement towards the European Union, says Prime Minister Talat Xhaferi.

Addressing the Conference dedicated to the Growth Plan, which is being held in Tirana, Xhaferi said that the countries of the Western Balkans are actively cooperating and contributing to the common regional market becoming a reality, as a preparation for bringing the entire region closer to the EU internal market.

The growth plan, as Xhaferi pointed out, represents a serious incentive for greater economic integration within the Western Balkans, creating better job opportunities and increasing GDP growth across the region.

- This joint effort is not only beneficial for the Western Balkans, but also improves the attractiveness and competitiveness of the region. It brings us closer to EU markets and facilitates sustainable economic development. In this direction, the common regional market laid the foundation for strengthened trade relations and joint economic initiatives, Xhaferi pointed out at the Conference.

As Xhaferi pointed out in his presentation, the countries of the Western Balkans are actively cooperating and contributing to the common regional market becoming a reality, as a preparation for bringing the entire region closer to the internal market of the EU, and that the countries are facing additional, more fundamental reforms in terms of improving the capacities, efficiency and competitiveness of our economies and the region as a whole.

The next action plan for the common regional market, as he added, should be a continuation of the progress achieved and respond to the identified challenges and set clear, measurable goals, including a monitoring and evaluation mechanism by prioritizing activities that have the greatest potential to make positive changes on the citizens.
