Building Capability to Design and Implement Growth Reforms: The Case Study of Albania

The Growth Lab has been engaged in an applied research project with the country of Albania since 2013. In this time, we have conducted research on numerous, diverse workstreams related to stimulating economic growth in the country. During this research engagement, our team worked directly with policymakers to help build their capabilities so they can better design and implement policy reforms.

In this podcast episode, Growth Lab researchers Jessie Lu and Ermal Frasheri discuss the importance of growth reforms for the Albanian economy, the specific reform initiatives that the government has been engaged in during recent years, and the impact of COVID-19 on the implementation of these reforms.

Listen to the first and second episode in this podcast series.
