There are dozens of business associations in Albania and membership in these associations generally is open. The American Chamber of Commerce in Albania is very active in the business community and open to new membership. Other business associations include the Foreign Investors Association of Albania, Tirana Chamber of Commerce, and the German Chamber of Commerce. To date, membership in business chambers of commerce has been on a voluntary basis. However, in 2017 the government introduced draft legislation that would obligate membership in regional chambers of commerce for all businesses. The law remained in draft form as of May 2019.
