author distils the 'host country determinants' framework based on the location
variable to assess and evaluate Albania's attractiveness for FDI flows.

Albania's host country determinants, leading the author to provide policy

advance managerial methods. Albania possesses all the essential
components to increase inward FDI but this will be explored through the
author's own developed framework. The result of the analysis will produce
policy implications that aim to boost Albania's future FDI inflows.
