Municipality of Saranda

The municipality of Saranda as a local government unit has under its administration the city of Saranda and the villages of Gjashtë, Metoq and Shelegar. The population size is over 41 000 inhabitants, of which 35 545 live in the city. The Municipality extends over a surface area of 2 784 ha, of which 1 404 ha is agricultural land, 455 ha forests and pastures and the rest urban and rural area.

The high dynamics of demographical, economic and social development exerts a growing pressure on the enlargement of the urban area and reconsideration of administrative boundaries of the local government units. The tripling of population over the last 25 years, has led to a population density of 4 750 inhabitants/km², resulting in an urban and environmental density twice higher than the normal allowable limit of this indicator.

The rapid growth of the tourism sector has become an important part of the energy channeled in this direction. Increased accommodation capacity with approximately 20,000 beds and the extension of the tourist season can be considered as significant achievement in this aspect. The improvement of services and infrastructure in accessing natural cultural and archaeological sites has had a positive impact on the tourism offers as well.

In addition to tourism, the developments in the economic and social sectors are also important. Over the recent years, a rapid growth has been noticed in the construction industry, fishing and services sectors and agribusiness. In this area, some 30 enterprises, various budgetary institutions, subsidiary companies and 1,850 private entities exert their activities; a significant growth compared to the figure of 630 private businesses that operated in 2002. Saranda has an inventory of about 50 small and medium sized fishing boats and a fishing sectors which cultivates on average about 15-20 thousand quintals of seashells. Another key economic sector is the agricultural sector which realizes an annual production of about 10 million dollars, mainly in the production of field crops, vegetables and livestock products.
