From January 1 2015, Albania will use a new model of certificates of origin for Albanian products which get exported to foreign markets.

Sources from the Ministry of Agriculture informed that the new model features more security elements for products “Made in Albania”. Albanian authorities took this measure immediately after the embargo that Russia put on Albanian agricultural exports.
