The Bank of Albania deems that in 2019 H2 (hereinafter ‘the period’), banking sector showed positive developments in its activity, based on the indicators of financial performance and exposure to risks. Banking sector, driven by the improvement of intermediation, contributed in the economic growth of Albania. Capitalisation indicators and stress tests show the resilience of the banking sector's activity. This stability will be maintained, notwithstanding the serious and exceptional challenge countered by public health and the economic development due to the SAR-COV-2 outbreak (Covid-19).
