According to her, the focus should be on improving the quality of public investments. "Rising prices like rising energy prices are risks. Albania has some challenges for its economy.

A fiscal adjustment plan needs to be formulated now. The foundation of this plan should be the medium-term strategy.

IMF: Concessions have exceeded costs

Po ashtu kritika ka patur edhe për koncesionet ku sipas FMN numri i kontratave koncesionare nga viti 2013 është rritur me 50%. FMN shprehet se me koncesionet ka tejkalim kostosh dhe shkelje të afateve fillestare. “Rritja e shpejtë e stokut të partneriteteve publike private (PPP) —që pritet të arrijë në 50 për qind të PBB-së në 2021, nga 33 për qind në vitin 2018—kërkon dyfishimin e përpjekjeve për të forcuar menaxhimin e investimeve publike (MIP). Investimet publike të financuara me burime të brendshme (që nuk lidhen me tërmetin) janë rritur me shpejtësi që nga viti 2020. Sfidat kryesore përfshijnë mungesën e transparencës mbi tejkalimin e kostove dhe afateve fillestare dhe mosrespektimin e proceseve të miratuara të përzgjedhjes dhe miratimit të projekteve, përfshirë këtu kur PPP-të përdoren për të anashkaluar tavanet buxhetore afatmesme”, thuhet në konkluzionet e FMN.
