The Albanian government has decided to remove the customs tariffs on the goods crossing the Albanian border crossings and originating in Central Serbia, Kosovo and Metohija and North Macedonia.

The decision is a result of the orientation of the country within the “Open Balkans” process and the help that the members of the initiative have to provide to each other in the time of the crisis with high prices.

Although Pristina is not part of this initiative, the Ministry of Finance in Tirana decided to have it included based on the agreement on the mutual removal of customs barriers, report the media in Tirana.

The fees for the parking of vehicles, branding or stamping of goods and their weighing will no longer be charged.

The current fees are six euros for parking and seven euros for weighing.

For a truck which transport the goods across an Albanian border crossing, the costs will be around EUR 14 million lower than before.

The media in Tirana says that Albania exported goods worth EUR 132 million to the Kosovo market in the first five months of this year. Goods exported to Central Serbia were worth EUR 100 million, and those exported to North Macedonia EUR 62 million.
