Tender affairs, American Chamber: Clear criteria are needed, plenty of company favors, in many cases standards not met

Tender affairs, American Chamber: Clear criteria are needed, plenty of company

The President of the American Chamber of Commerce, Enio Jaço, has been in the United States for several days for meetings with American officials, but also with representatives of the Albanian community. In an interview with VOA, Jaço spoke about developments in Albania, as well as the business climate, where one of the questions was about the recent statements of Prime Minister Edi Rama regarding abuses with public tenders. According to him, the statements are positive. He added that awareness is very important for all of us, it is also important for the public, they should understand all the problems we have with public procurement. But according to the head of the American Chamber, the statements are not enough. "Along with the statements, from what we have followed in the media, I have gladly noticed that there is a desire to prepare a new legislation, which will consider significant improvements in the area of ??public procurement. We have not consulted this legislation, so I can not speak in detail about the quality of these changes, but there are two elements that we have not noticed. The first is transparency. It is very important that Public Procurement is done once and for all with clear, transparent criteria, with Open Data criteria. And the second very important, is to have the "elimination of exceptions", because we have many cases that do not go through the standards of the public procurement process but go through special cases. "If we have these two elements, I think it is a very good start," he said. so I can not talk in detail about the quality of these changes, but there are two elements that we have not noticed.

Rule of law

He also referred to the rule of law. According to Americans, justice reform will undoubtedly affect the call for investment. With a functioning judiciary there will be more foreign companies in the country. "Albania is a country that does not have a tradition with strong public institutions to have confidence and it will take a long time until it reaches such a point and then we will be really able to judge whether what is does SPAK will now be at a very positive level in the long run. Personally I see positive signs. "We will have to be patient and look even longer because it is just the beginning," he said.

recommendation

The American Chamber of Commerce has provided about 40 recommendations for the business climate in the country. Jaço in the interview for VOA explained the details of these recommendations. The American Chamber has had a long discussion about the "Investment Agenda" and now is the time to act. All parties need to act and this is the main purpose of the recommendations. So we have to go from awareness to action. "From the first reactions we have had, both from the opposition and from the government, I think we will have a positive approach to these recommendations," he said.
