Representatives of the Bank of Albania and commercial banks attended the workshop.
In their presentation, representatives of the CRIF company referred to the current market situation and the CRIFF approach to the credit journey. They demonstrated how the whole process works, continuing with an interactive discussion with participants. In addition, the next steps – a general overview of Go-live, were presented.
