Objective 1: Improving services for citizens at the local level
The Administrative-Territorial Reform will lead to local governments’ enhanced administrative, professional, and technical efficiency to deliver modern and qualitative services for citizens. The administrative units (ex-communes) will continue to offer basic services for every citizen of the new municipalities.
Objective 2: Maximizing efficiency and good governance
The Administrative-Territorial Reform will lead to enhanced good governance at the local and regional level; efficient service delivery and effective collection of tariffs and fees by local governments; greater ability to promote and encourage sustainable local economic development.

Objective 3: Empowering local and regional governments, citizens and communities
The Administrative-Territorial Reform will empower local and regional governments by decentralizing more functions and competencies and allocating more public funds to them. The 61 new municipalities will have more opportunities to take part in international cooperation projects; absorb more funds from EU and other donors; and enjoy larger bargaining power vis-à-vis the central government, as well as a greater scope for inter-municipal cooperation.
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet nunc metus feugiat tortor et quam quis mauris
The Albanian Government developed and nurtured a platform for close and meaningful cooperation among all stakeholders of the Administrative-Territorial Reform and complied with the highest standards of inclusiveness and transparency. 20,341 citizens, representatives of public institutions and independent agencies, local government, civil society, private sector, media, as well as international organizations and programs, participated in the consultation process.
