Albania and China had strong economic growth in 2009
Economic crises in the world has shown that the one who is strong, fast and works hardest will definitely emerge in the world Economy. China and Albania--two former communist countries with nothing in common culturally or geographically, are perfect for each other in the economical marriage. A perfect marriage between two countries with economic growth, Albania with amazing untapped natural resources, China an industrialized nation looking to strongly capture the European Market and setting up strategic influence in the region. Making Albania a store front for Europe to purchase China's Products will be the best investment China ever made in Europe. In Albania, China will have amazing opportunities to trade their goods with the Balkans, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa and benefit from 100s of billions of dollars Albania and Kosovo have in minerals.According to the latest figures economic growth in China and Albania was around 6-8% this year, and strong growth is expected this year as well. This analysis takes a closer look at some of the important aspects of Albania's economic development in recent years and the state of the reforms already carried out, particularly in the banking sector. It shows that the Albanian economy is developing very satisfactorily - compared with the development in the most recent new EU member states as well, so at least in the economic perspective Albania's aim of coming close to EU membership in the medium term does not appear to be unrealistic. Albania has increased tourism 20% in the last 2 years.
The strength of the property sector in China has been another big surprise. Property sales were up 53% in the first six months from a year earlier, according to a survey commissioned by the statistics bureau and published in the China Information News, while nationwide prices averaged across 70 cities climbed year on year in June. This masks the fact that in China's second and third largest cities prices have been strengthening much more. Property normally accounts for about 25% of fixed asset investment in China and is a key form of wealth holding for most Chinese. Optimism about housing prices will translate into greater consumer confidence. China and Albania have more new places getting built per capita than any other place in the world. This news clearly shows investors that investing in both countries is a good move.

Tourists to Albania jump 36% to 1.58 million in January-July
The number of holidaymakers visiting Albania in January-July surged by 36% on the year to 1.58 million, generating 212 million euros in revenue, the ministry of tourism reported.
Declaring vacations as the main purpose of their stay were 89% of visitors, with 3.0% entering on business and 2.0% in transit, the ministry said in a statement.
Over 90% of tourists from abroad came from Europe.

Vize-Verteidigungsminister Karabina wirft Serbioen Verantwortung für Minen vor
Tirana - In Albanien sind alle bekannten Minen und nicht explodierten Geschoße geräumt worden. Wie der albanische Vize-Verteidigungsminister Petrit Karabina am Donnerstag mitteilte, wurden die letzten Minen in der vergangenen Woche im Nordosten des Landes beseitigt. Karabina warf Serbien vor, für die meisten Minen verantwortlich gewesen zu sein. Sie seien während der Kriege im Kosovo von 1998 bis 1999 und in Mazedonien 2001 gelegt worden, als dort albanischstämmige Gruppe kämpften. Auch Waffenschmuggler seien für etliche Minen verantwortlich gewesen.
In den vergangenen zehn Jahren wurden in Albanien 34 Menschen durch Minen oder bei der Explosion von Munition getötet, ein Drittel davon waren Kinder. 238 Menschen wurden verwundet. (APA/AP)
Stream Oil & Gas Ltd., Vancouver, BC, proposes a development plan under which it would assume operation within 12 months of Albania’s Cakran-Mollaj, Gorisht-Kocul, Ballsh-Hekal oil fields.
Upon approval and after funds are raised, Stream will undertake managed reservoir completions at some wells with a goal of at least doubling existing production of 470 b/d before mid-2010. Basic well workovers are sustaining and improving production.
By the end of 2010, Stream plans to hike output at more wells and carry out technical planning for a waterflood at Gorisht and enhanced oil recovery projects at Cakran and Ballsh.
Albania’s Albpetrol agreed to settle an accounts receivable of $1.1 million by providing Stream with additional crude oil for 3 months starting in October 2009.

Albania: A Very Attractive Country for Oil Investments
Europe’s largest onshore oilfield, the 2-billion barrel Patos Marinzas, is in Albania. But it now appears that country’s potential reserves could be far greater — one of the world’s largest onshore light oil fields lies to be announced, right in the heart of Europe. A study by an international engineering firm was released regarding a series of giant light oil-bearing structures north of Patos Marinzas. The engineers say they could contain a spectacular 2.9 billion barrels of light crude — great news for a tiny Switzerland-based oil company, Manas Petroleum which is currently U.S.-listed. (OTCBB: MNAP).
Erik Herlyn, CEO of Manas, comments, "Our focus right now is to finalize the financing of our large exploration project in Albania. Management is actively refining negotiations and will decide which arrangement best enhances shareholder value." Manas now controls 100% working interest in six giant exploration blocks near Europe's largest onshore production. Independent reports from Gustavson and Associates (2008) assign (P50) of almost 3 billion barrels in block A, B, D and E (12.3 Billion Oil in Place) which Manas controls. Two of Manas' four blocks are now drill-ready. The council of ministers recently ratified the production-sharing contract on the two former Oxy blocks to DWM Petroleum, a subsidiary of Manas. These blocks are within the area where most of Bankers Petroleum's current shallow oil production derives from. Manas has the rights to explore the deeper targets in block two where Bankers is producing oil, and where in 2001 Occidental made a light oil discovery. A 51-101-compliant estimate is now being prepared. As Manas drills and develops these giant plays, it clearly has the potential to become one of the world’s fastest-growing oil companies.

China's vast manufacturing sector expanded in October at the fastest rate in 18 months, a survey showed on Sunday, and economists said they expected the momentum to be sustained in the coming years.
China's manufacturing sector rose to 55.2 percent in October, up 0.9 percentage points from the previous month, the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing (CFLP) said on Sunday.
The index was 0.6 percentage points higher than the number in September, when the PMI edged up only 0.3 percentage points to 54.3 percent. It was the eighth month in a row that the PMI reading stayed above 50.
A reading of above 50 suggests expansion, while one below 50 indicates contraction. The PMI includes a package of indices that measure economic performance.
The survey, conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), covers purchasing and supply managers in more than 700 firms across China. The CFLP launched the PMI in 2005.
The production index in the PMI reached 59.3 percent in October, the highest level since last May.
China third-quarter growth accelerated to 8.9 percent -- the fastest pace in a year -- as the economy powered up an expansion built on a flood of stimulus cash and bank lending.
The world's third-largest economy is on course to meet a government target of 8.0 percent growth for 2009 -- seen as vital to foster job creation and ward off social unrest in the nation of 1.3 billion people.
The 8.9 percent growth revealed by the National Bureau of Statistics was the fastest quarterly expansion in a year. It followed 7.9 percent in the second quarter and 6.1 percent in the first three months, which was the slowest in more than a decade.
China's gross domestic product grew 7.7 percent in the first nine months of 2009 compared with the same period a year ago, after growing 7.1 percent in the first half, the data showed.

Megjithatė, efektet negative tė reduktimit tė tarifave do tė kompensohen nė njėfarė mase me rritjen e parashikuar tė volumit dhe tė vlerės sė importeve nga kėto vende”, thuhet nė relacion. Nga ana tjetėr qeveria ka parashikuar tė ketė rritje tė sė ardhurave nga tė gjitha taksat e tjera, ku rritjen mė tė madhe pritet ta shėnojnė tė ardhurat nga akciza, me rreth 15.3 pėr qind nė krahasim me njė vit mė parė. “Nga totali i tė ardhurave nga akciza, administrata doganore pritet tė mbledhė rreth 26.8 miliard leke, ose 14.7 pėr qind mė shumė se nė vitin 2009. Administrata tatimore pritet tė mbledhė 15.7 miliard lekė nga akciza, me njė rritje prej 16.2 pėr qind kundrejt vitit 2009. Edhe kėtu, do tė ushtrojė ndikim rritja fundit e nivelit tė akcizės mbi cigaren. Efekti nė total i ndryshimeve ligjore ėshtė rreth 2.5 miliardė lek pėr vitin 2010”, thuhet nė relacion.
Ashtu si edhe njė vit mė parė investimet nė infrastrukturė pritet tė jenė prioritet i Qeverisė. Nė zėrin e buxhetit ‘shpenzime kapitale’ ėshtė parashikuar njė fond prej 83.3 miliard lekė (925 milion USD) nga tė cilat investime me burime tė brendshme 59 miliard lekė dhe me burime tė huaja 23 miliard lek. Megjithėse nuk janė detajuar zėrat ku do tė shkojnė kėto fonde, pritet qė njė pjesė e tyre tė shkojnė pėr rrugėn Durrės-Kukės. “Kėto nivele tė shpenzimeve kapitale tė brendshme reflektojnė dhe pėrfundimin e punimeve pėr rrugėn Rrėshen-Kalimash, ndėrkohe qė financimi i shpenzimeve kapitale me burime tė huaja ka njė rritje prej 4.2 miliard leke krahasuar me buxhetin suplementar tė vitit 2009”, thuhet nė relacion. Prioritet do tė jenė ato investime tė cilat janė nė pėrfundim e sipėr, kryesisht nė arsim dhe shėndetėsi.

Albania: Giant oil play emerging in Europe
It’s a little-known fact that Europe’s largest onshore oilfield, the 2-billion barrel Patos Marinzas, is in Albania. But it now appears that country’s potential reserves could be far greater - one of the world’s largest onshore light oil fields lies to be announced, right in the heart of Europe.
This astonishing news came in 2007 when a study by the international engineering firm, Gustavson & Associates, was released regarding a series of giant light oil-bearing structures north of Patos Marinzas. The engineers say they could contain a spectacular 2.9 billion barrels of light crude, great news for a tiny Switzerland-based oil company, Manas Petroleum which is currently US-listed.
It was especially surprising for investors, since Albania is relatively overlooked. Mention Albania to an energy analyst, and you might get a blank stare, despite the country’s many oil fields and a long oil history that goes back to ancient Rome. Its obscurity looks short-lived, however, given its growing importance as a “safe” source of oil.
After all, Europe needs reliable supplies, but from where?
Russia is getting dicey. A growing Nigerian insurgency is targeting exports. Its own North Sea production is plummeting, and the Middle East is in turmoil. Albania’s time has finally come as democracy reigns, after 40 years of communism. Shell Oil and France’s Corparex, arrived first. They spent $25 million on seismic in the early 1990s, finding a deep structure with potential for 820 million barrels of light oil.
Oil plunged to $12 just as fighting in Kosovo spilled into Albania, a civil war broke out and both companies fled. Today all that is history. Crude in now around $70.00 and Albania, now a member of NATO is booming. Albanian oil development is now moving at full throttle.
And that Shell structure abandoned a decade ago, with its potential 820 million barrels of light crude? It is controlled by Manas Petroleum, which received final exploration and production approvals last December.
Manas now has over 3,000 sq. km. in Albania. But all this is the tip of the iceberg. A further eight similar giant structures have since been discovered. Gustavson, they advise Big Oil, the US Dept. of Energy and the IRS, calls the prospects “superbly defined and virtually drill-ready.” Gustavson’s work indicated a “most likely” potential for a staggering 2.9 billion barrels of light oil and 3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Manas Petroleum is a product of communism’s collapse, and the great distress sales that followed. Overall, independent US and British engineering studies estimate that Manas now has more than 4 billion recoverable barrels oil (equivalent) in the resource category, totalling more than 30 barrels per share. As it drills and develops these giant plays, Manas clearly has the potential to become one of the world’s fastest-growing oil companies.
Of course, it helps when you’re near the front of the line during one of history’s greatest distress sales.
