Albania's transition from a socialist centrally planned economy to a capitalist mixed economy has been largely successful.[1] "Formal non-agricultural employment in the private sector more than doubled between 1999 and 2013," notes the World Bank, with much of this expansion powered by foreign investment.[2]
