The Focus Group Meeting held on 05th of June 2015, was the result of a successful collaboration between Lauren Alpert, a Peace Corps Volunteer and LERDA, a local development Agency. This meeting was the first implemented activity of the “Business Development in the Lezha Region” Project, and as such served to know better the business community, gather information about their whereabouts, status, activities etc, through contacting business owners and sharing thoughts and issues with them.

The discussion Group was composed of 20 participants from different business background, form small office supply shops, to bigger construction or transport businesses. We also made it possible to have there with us a couple of freelancers (photograph and web designer) that could give us a different perspective of doing business in the current conditions in the Lezhe Region.
