The ICT sector is growing rapidly, making it one of the country’s most dynamic industries. In recent years government measures have been introduced through the Crosscutting Strategy of Information Society that aims to bring Albania up to speed in the digital age. Government legislation has liberalized the telecoms industry, bringing it into line with the EU regulatory framework for communications, which encourages competition.
In 2007, the National Agency for Information Society (NAIS) was set up, aiming at accelerating the development of information society and e-government services. Almost 80% of the basic services at the central government level are currently accessible as e-services at first or second level of sophistication, while more than 50% of G2B services are provided in interactive levels of sophistication.
