Albania’s European dream is just out of reach
Despite fulfilling all entry criteria, the pandemic has thwarted plans for a larger European Union. "Albania has been knocking at the EU's door for more than a decade, and this spring, it finally seemed to open.

But as the coronavirus devastates even Europe's richest economies, the Albanian dream looks more elusive than ever." Andrea Dudik and Flavia Krause-Jackson, writing in Bloomberg Businessweek, report.
