“Public-private dialogue can take various forms. However, in order to have systemic impact, such dialogue needs an established, trusted platform. That platform should be a forum for regular meetings between the authorities and the business community, one at which businesses can air their concerns and the government can respond in a credible way.”
Sir Suma Chakrabarti, EBRD’s President – London, 2 March 2017

Ms Milva Ekonomi, Minister of Economic Development – London, 2 March 2017

Investment Council is a platform set up by the Albanian authorities with support from the EBRD to intensify the dialogue between the government and the private sector, improve the business climate and promote good governance. The work of the Council is supported by a Secretariat, an independent body of professionals selected and contracted by the EBRD to directly engage with the business community. The initial funding for the Secretariat was provided by Italy (period 2015-2018), while current funding (2019-2021) is being provided by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
