Albanian Goods Towards European Internal Market

Ulpian Hoti, Sokol Bana

Abstract


The free movement of goods is one of the four fundamental freedoms guaranteed in the European Union and from which European citizens and businesses as well as other citizens outside Europe are now benefiting. It is at the heart of the EU policies. Today’s free movement of goods incorporates many policies and fits smoothly into a responsible internal market which guarantees easy access to high-quality products, combined with a high degree of protection of other public interests. The free movement of goods has been a key element in creating and developing the internal market and nowadays the Albanian market as well. Albania from June 2014 is a candidate country to the EU and Albania’s reform agenda under the SAA is covering areas ranging from political dialogue and regional cooperation to Community freedoms in the movement of goods, services, workers and capital, and mutual co-operation in justice and home affairs. In the context of the integration in the European Union, Albania is now fulfilling the criterion of membership in EU through the fulfillment of the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA). The aim of this paper is to show that free movement of Albanian’s goods toward European Union, under SAA these years is in a good perspective. Articles 34–36 of the Treaty which define the scope and content of the principle by prohibiting unjustified restrictions on intra-EU trade and articles 16-45 SAA are on the focus of this study. In particular will be analyzed the free movement of goods, the harmonizing legislation, the actual rights and duties to be observed.
