The Albanian government decided yesterday to abolish customs duties for goods imported from Serbia, Kosovo and North Macedonia that pass through Albanian border crossings, writes Euronews Albania.
As stated in the report, this decision was made on the basis of the country’s determination to participate in the Open Balkans initiative and on the back of the help that the member states of that initiative gave to each other during the economic crisis.
Albania’s inclusion of Kosovo in this decision, although Kosovo has not joined the Open Balkans initiative, is based on an agreement on the mutual removal of customs barriers.
Parking fees and fees relating to weighing goods on the border will also not be charged, so the cost for a freight truck entering Albania will be about 14 euros lower than before.
