This is related to the fact that the private sector plays a very important role in the Albanian Economy, contributing an estimated 80 % of GDP, and providing over 70 % of total employment.
As part of efforts to support the government of Albania capacity in the area of Trade and FDI, new assistance has been considered, which will be provided by EC and UNDP to Albania. The wider objective of the project is support for enhancing regional trade and attracting new investment to Albania through exploitation of opportunities presented by the SAA and CEFTA agreements.
UNDP is undertaking the following activities to achieve the objectives and targets of this Project:
With the signing of the EC-UNDP Project Agreement, UNDP will initiate the Mobilization Phase of the Project. During this Phase, key project staff, including the Team Leader, will be recruited and other initial logistical arrangements will be completed.
Upon completion of these mobilization activities, UNDP will initiate the Inception Phase. The primary objective of this stage of project implementation is to conduct an updated needs assessment on the basis of which an Inception Report (for submission to the EC Delegation) will be prepared, to include a training programme with a timetable for project implementation encompassing all project components and activities, an input schedule, and a revised logical framework.
In order to achieve the above, the Team Leader will undertake an initial inception mission to assess the current situation. Meetings will be held with all institutions to ensure their awareness and participation in the project, including all those entities forming the proposed Project Steering Committee.
These Terms of Reference describe the technical and managerial duties and responsibilities of the Team Leader over the duration of the project across the Inception and full Implementation Phases.
