On August 1, 2017 the Coordination Unit of the NBF, Ms. Ballesha along with ACER team (member of NBF) held a meeting with Ms. Ardita Senkaj, secretary general of the CCI in Albania.  To Ms. Seknaj the Forum has been introduced more than one year ago and she was part of the Tirana Regional Business Forum (September 2016) and at the NBA launch (March 2017).
After Ms. Ballesha introduced the work done by NBF form the NBA launching, and Ms. Seknaj presented the work done by ICC Albania during the last year, they discussed about the main concerns and problematic concerning business in Albania and about the economic business climate. The main concerns stressed were:
-The lack of cooperation between business organizations and the difficult conditions of most Albanian business organizations (lack of staff, funds, etc.)
-The problems faced by business community with the public private dialogue
- Public corruption and lack of administration professionalism

Outcome: Ms. Seknajcomplimented the work done so far by the Forum and was enthusiastic that finally in Albania business organizations could work together for this long time without thinking only on personal interest but joining forces to strength the business community voice.
She stressed that no one in the beginning of NBF thought that an independent and volunteer coalition could work so well by not being used by the government or being affected by the organizations that have public intervention.
As one of the issues discussed during the meeting (the public private dialogue) was a concern for both organizations (NBF and ICC Albania) and as Ms. Seknaj found very useful the conclusions and recommendations presented at the NBA, it was agreed that during the last trimester of 2017 to raise the issue of public private dialogue by involving also other organizations. Ms. Seknaj will present this in the next general assembly meeting of ICC Albania and in the next months will have again a meeting with the CU to discuss what was agreed.
