In July 2015, The means was appointed to work alongside a local legal practice in framing the legislation to put BIDs on a statutory basis in Albania. In addition to formulating the BID arrangements and rules, the task included liaising with the different ministries involved in some way with the passage and impact of the law.

In the UK in the early 2000s when BIDs legislation was being considered by Parliament, a group of pilot BID type organisations were formed to road test the concept in action. Similarly, our work in Albania involved supporting a learning network of organisations running BID type programmes in 5 Albanian cities
