  • [01] Net foreing currency reserves amount to $ 289 million

    TIRANE, Dec 15 (ATA)- By E.Metaj, Net foreing currency reserves of the Albanian Bank have amounted to $ 289 million by the end of October, sources from this institution told ATA.

    The current level of the net foreing currency reserves of the Central Bank of Albania is approximately US$ 124 million above the defined minimum quota of $ 165 million.

    The increase of the foreign currency reserves of the Bank of Albania is due to 20 million EURO provided by EU to support the budget deficit of this year and to the third tranche taken in the framework of ESAF 2 programme worth $ 12,8 million and the funds accorded by the World Bank.

    The fund worth $ 2,4 million provided by the Government of Finland to help the Albanian government has also influenced in the increase of these reserves.

    The inflow of foreing currency, although it immediately increased foreing currency reserves of the Bank of Albania, did not influence monetary indices as a whole.

    The Albanian Bank in order not to influence the further evaluation of the lek and to curb consumption of the population, due to the evaluation of their incomes in Lek, has followed during this year the policy of increasing foreing currency reserves and has not interfered in the market of the foreing currency exchange, sources close to this bank report. /dast/so/

    [14] Work of children, a worrying phenomenon of Albanian society

    TIRANE, Dec.15 (ata) - By G Dilaveri: The phenomenon of children's working in Albania has had greater proportions in the recent years, a report of the centre for the Defence of Children's Rights, published on Wednesday, points out.

    Although prohibited by law, so far there is not any organization or public institution to send to the court even a single case, to help stop the employment of children, the same source said.

    Differently from some states, where the heavy work of the children, though prohibited by law, is spread to a great extend, in Albania the are no heavy jobs for children for the only reason that industry in this country is almost nonexistent and the level of unemployment is very high.

    Almost all the children working in Albania are under 14, many of whom have started to work since when they have been 10-12 years old, because the family conditions cannot allow them to have a normal welfare. Only 17 per cent of the children interviewed by this centre said they work and study at the same time, a fact showing that the work among children is one of the main reasons that school is being abandoned.

    The work that most of the children presently do is selling various articles such as cigarettes and lighters, bananas and roasted maize cobs. Only in Tirana there are more than 200 children who start their jobs in the morning as ambulant sellers in Tirana bars and streets. /led/xh/
