Short Description

The Vlore Regional Development Agency (and SME) NGO serves the business community in the Districts of Vlore, Himara, Delvina and Saranda. It supports economic development, particularly SME development, in the south western region of Albania.
Since June, 1992 the strategy of Agency has been exclusively targeted at providing business support services for existing and newly emerging SMEs.Our consulting and human resource development services will gradually become fee-based merely to cover our operational costs, and are tailored both to meet the priority needs of our clients and to give them the possible maximum amount of money.

The Agency has striven to increase its expertise through the recruitment and training of its own and subcontracted business counselors and professional trainers. Prior to 1998 the Vlore RDA operated under the name of Vlore Regional Business Agency (RBA) and was the first of the seven agencies set up under the Albanian Government’s Small and Medium Enterprise Foundation (SMEF) in 1993
Vlore RDA has received ongoing training and technical assistance starting with the EU Phare SME project in 1993 through various GTZ, EU and USAID, World Bank. LEGAL STRUCTURE
