The World Bank Group country partnership strategy (CPS) for Albania covers the period FY11-FY14 and is the first CPS to be presented following Albania's graduation from International Development Association (IDA) in mid-2008. Albania enters the new CPS period having weathered the global financial and economic crisis reasonably well - maintaining positive, albeit significantly reduced, growth rates in 2009 and a sound banking sector. The key challenges to improving Albania's growth prospects in this environment include: (i) the early resumption of a sound medium term fiscal framework and further strengthening of public expenditure management; (ii) improving implementation of Albania's already broad program of regulatory reforms to boost competitiveness and investment levels; (iii) continuing to close the infrastructure gap in a fiscally sustainable manner; and (iv) deepening the private sector access to credit. Meanwhile, the slow recovery is likely to take its toll on the most vulnerable necessitating a renewed attention to improving the effectiveness of social protection systems and accelerating progress on social indicators. Finally, Albania is rapidly coming to terms with its climate change challenge - as the second most vulnerable country in Europe and Central Asia - primarily relating to the management of its water resources on which the country is heavily dependent for energy and agriculture. The joint Bank Group program presented in this CPS focuses on the implementation of a large ongoing program in Albania that is already supporting the above mentioned challenges, while selectively introducing new International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) lending of around $2 75 million, and increasing International Finance Corporation (IFC) financing for the private sector to a level of $120-$150 million. IFC will also mobilize other funds especially for private participation in infrastructure through its advisory services.
