"Regarding the level of ERA implementation, from November 2016 to the end of January 2019, there are 11 out of 22 priorities that have been fully implemented, i.e. 50%, while the other half are under implementation" pointed out Minister Hoxha, whereas as far as the action plan is concerned, 96 out of 135 actions are fully implemented, which means it is implemented at a rate of 71.11%.

In close co-operation with the EU Office, we are working on the final draft of ERA 2 and will soon be approved by the Government, and then be forwarded to the Assembly. We expect that during 2019, we will increase the dynamics of the implementation of ERA 2 priorities and we will strive to go beyond the expectations, noted the Minister.
