Albania and technology, UN: The slowest developing country in Europe

Albania and technology, UN: The slowest developing country in Europe

In these times when the world is threatened by the spread of Covid-19, the eyes of the entire planet have been directed not only to doctors but also to  science as well as the high tech industry.

The latest United Nations report on the assessment of sustainable targets in European and Central Asian countries says that in the past 10 years Albania is one of the countries where this industry has suffered the most, especially in terms of value added in relation to total value in the economy.

The decline is deep, as the chart shows, from about 20% in 2006 to about 7% in 2016. Although the latest data in the report refers to 2016, the trend is clear and points to a lack of development of this industry in our country.

Among the countries of Europe and Central Asia surveyed, Albania is 4th from the bottom of the list, with Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan the only countries at a rate lower than that recorded in our country. For more developed countries, such as Germany or Switzerland, the rate exceeds 60%.
