Our team of experts worked alongside counterparts within the Customs Administration in Tirana and throughout Albania on a consultancy and advisory basis. Aside from the advisory role, we also provided consultancy in the areas of anti-corruption, human resources and risk analysis.

We were successfully able to contribute to a reduction in actual and perceived corruption within the revenue collection system. This secured an extra €2.4 million of revenue for the government.
