The main objective of the Bank of Albania is to achieve and maintain price stability. To pursue this goal and to strengthen its transparency, the Bank of Albania compiles and publishes the Monetary Policy Report. This Report is the main instrument the Bank of Albania uses to communicate its monetary policy to the public. It provides a comprehensive overview of the recent macroeconomic developments and the factors that have affected and are expected to affect consumer price performance in Albania.


The Bank of Albania’s Monetary Policy Report is published quarterly, in both Albanian and English versions. This Report was an integral part of the Economic Bulletin until 2009. It was first published as a separate publication in April 2010.
