Located in the southwestern portion of the Balkan Peninsula, Albania is bordered by Montenegro in the northwest, Kosovo in the northeast, Macedonia to the east and Greece to the south and southeast. It is a country with a rich history, a long-standing tradition, a desirable geographic location and a booming economy. With an extremely vast diaspora, the economic potential of the Albanian population is significant.
