Union of Albanian Business
BiznesAlbania has 24 Business Associations as association members, and a number of individual companies as direct members. It represents more than 30.000 employers as part of association members
BiznesAlbania is recognized nationally, regionally and internationally. In December 2013, BiznesAlbania became a member of the National Council of Labour having also the position of the deputy chairman of the Council representing the employers’ side. It is also a member of the National Economic Council chaired by the Prime Minister of Albania and in a series of committees and boards that serve the Tripartite Social Dialogue in Albania.
It works closely with the ILO and is a full member of the International Organization of Employers (IOE) since June 2013, partner of BusinessEurope and DECP (Dutch Employers’ Cooperation Programme).
BiznesAlbania offers its members a wide range of services including Law Consultation Service, Information Dissemination, VET, Networking, Lobbying/Advocacy, and Research & Publications.
In March 2014 BiznesAlbania in cooperation with ILO Office in Budapest conducted strategic planning workshop to review strategic direction for BiznesAlbania. A key outcome of the workshop was that BiznesAlbania should eventually broaden its range of issues concerning business therefore becoming eventually a business organization rather than employers’ organization. The mission and vision for the organization has been redrafted to reflect this need.
