The expatriate workforce in Greece is being affected by the economic crisis, a European ambassador has said.
Albanian workers are being prompted to return home as Greece undergoes financial difficulties, but Greece’s ambassador to Albania Nikolaos Pazios explained it is too soon to speak of the situation as permanent.
"They are maybe disappointed in Greece, they have administrative problems or they think the situation is getting better in Albania," the official told Reuters.
Many Albanian expats send money home, which accounts for a vital contribution to the country. However, remittances fell 6.4 per cent to 780 million euros (£662.7 million) last year compared to 2008.
Greece has championed Albania’s application to join the European Union, investing $1.2 billion in the country to become the top foreign investor, the news agency reported.
Some 800,000 Albanian expatriates live in Greece, commonly taking jobs in private construction, tourism and agriculture.
Those considering moving to Greece might think about taking out expatriate healthcare insurance to help cut down medical bills.
