Fabjola Bramo, Shyqyri Llaci

Abstract


Albania is a country that aspires to gain candidate status and after that the membership in the European Union. Our country has signed Stabilization and Association Agreement with the EU in 2006. From the signing of this agreement derive standards and obligations to be fulfilled, in order to be at the same level or close to the countries that are EU members. Reconstruction of the railway and standardization of their European levels is one of the most important tasks. To this day, in this sector is made little progress that hinders economic development in the country. Member states have already implemented the four guidelines for railways, while in Albania; this kind of transportation is neglected. In this paper we will discuss issues related to the problems that Albania railway system is currently facing, efforts made to their Europeanization and development opportunities in the future.
