Bank of Albania is the main producer and user of financial statistics of Albania. It produces statistics for the decision-making process and authorities and carries out statistical functions to serve the public, being considered one of the national statistics agencies and an important source to the Albanian public and foreigners.
The Bank of Albania compiles the monetary, financial and external statistics, as well as the comprehensive sets of statistical indicators under its legal mandate. This multi-layered information system forms the central empirical basis, in particular, for the monetary policy decision-making process, financial stability assessment and financial sector risks.
The Bank of Albania works with the Institute of Statistics (INSTAT) to perform its statistical tasks at national level. In this framework, both institutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2016, placing this longstanding cooperation on a firm foundation.
