§ Mr. David Atkinson
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assistance his Department is providing British companies in creating the opportunities to trade with Albania.
§ Mr. Needham
The Albania trade section within my Department provides general information about the market and answers specific questions about market opportunities. In addition, the world aid section and the export intelligence service publicise the opportunities in Albania which arise from the activities of the multilateral funding agencies.
My officials also work closely with counterparts in the joint assistance unit of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to ensure that British companies are aware of opportunities under the know-how fund.
