    [11] Small business predominates in private sector

    Bajram Curri, November 9 (ata) - By Riza Hoxha -More than 87% of the private sector in Tropoja district, near Kosova border, is covered by small business. At the moment 118 private subjects belong to the small business, and 80 of them to commercial sector, 24 to transport sector.

    The head of finance office in Kuksi prefecture Lume Dogjani told ATA that this phenomena is due to geographic and social-economic situation of the country and the undeveloped infrastructure is an obstacle for the development of large businesses.

    The larger business in this district consists of 17 private subjects, 15 of them in construction sector.

    Referring to Dogjani, the perspectives for the development of private sector belong to small business, because the middle and large enterprises have a muffled technology and its substitution needs considerable capitals, that in this district are missing. This is the reason why only 103 private subjects are registered in tariffs-tax office of the district this year, versus more than 450 registered in 1994. /linda/
