This paper follows an e-consultation as well as the debates of a dedicated forum. It is built on the existing legal and institutional context of both countries – Albania and Kosovo – and is viewed from the perspective of bilateral and regional initiatives. Although they are at different stages in advancing relations with the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the process of integration into the European Union, specific aspects of the legal framework of the latter two have been widely appreciated.
The topics that attracted the attention of the contributors can be divided as follows:
• Analysis and commentary on the evolution and profile of trade relations between Kosovo and Albania.
• Analysis on economic complementarity between the two countries, and on the sectors and actors most relevant in terms of exchanges between them form the second group of contributions.
• Better application of existing administrative and legislative measures and optimal use of the current regulatory and legislative framework is one of the most important conclusions of this discussion.
The very important role of history and politics in both countries and their shared future in the European Union concludes the set of major topics addressed in this forum.
