July 2013   STATEMENT OF activities, QUALIFICATIONS and projects   SHGPAZ was founded since 1992 as NGO, non-governmental, independent association which operates in all area of Albania, to assist women in business through information, training, lobbying to the improvement of policy-makers, as well as to facilitate the creation of public opinion and have a status like a specific group of interest. SHGPAZ - The Professional, Business Womne and Handcrafts Association is leaded and managed by a group of women who aim to support and encourage women in their economic professional activity and thus contribute to the streghtening of economic and society emancipation in Albania. SHGPAZ is one of the oldest associations in Albania, which is known on national regional and internationally. Following the western experience, this association has conducted a range of services for Albanian women in business by organizing trade forums, B2B, fair, exhibition, seminars and conferences, TV talk shows home and abroad.                                           SHGPAZ,  has established a local network of  8 districts (Tirane,Shkoder,Durres,Lezhe,Pogradec, Fier,Vlore, Puke) which involve  women in business, handcrafters and managers. In order to be able at responding in time to the current issues and to public matters, SHGPAZ established a flexible and functional management structure by organising  a strong team of in-house experts which are indispensable on the dissemination of research results and policy recommendations.  The association use a strong PR with the media, and the website, e-mail distribution lists and SHGPAZ’s publications.   Private sector development is seen as a critical element in strengthening and broadening the base of the economy and achieving greater international competitiveness. However, many of these adjustments and reforms fail to take account of their impact on women, and often neglect to consider women—and women entrepreneurs (WE) in particular as potential contributors to economic development, the growth of the private sector development, and the creation of decent employment. The importance of micro and small enterprises (MSMEs) in social and economic development, and the need to support their viability, expansion and growth, is accepted in most countries irrespective of their stage of economic development. Women and their economic contributions are often invisible and go unrecognized in many countries, both as entrepreneurs and as workers.   Projects: PBWA has realized these projects:
