The International Monetary Fund published on Friday a report on the economy in the Western Balkans during spring of 2016. According to the IMF report Albania and Serbia have the lowest economic growth among the Western Balkans countries. Albania ranks in the penultimate place with an economic growth of only 2.6% leaving behind Serbia with the lowest economic growth in the entire region. Meanwhile Montenegro and Macedonia have the highest economic growth, respectively 4.1% and 3.7%.
According to the IMF report Albania is still distant from the regional growth rhythms while the Western Balkans economic growth rhythms decrease the chances for the achievement of the Euro-Zone standards.
