From En Marcha, the newspaper of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador (PCMLE).

Since 1955 Albania becomes an industrial-agrarian country and by 1983 the specific weight of industry accounts for 70% with respect to agriculture.

Albania a country in southeastern Europe, bathed by the Adriatic Sea to the west and the Ionian Sea to the southwest, has an area of ​​28,748 km2. By 1944 it became a feudal structure in a backward country with widespread poverty and under the symbol of wooden plow.

The military intervention of Italian fascism and German Nazism in the Second World War and the sabotage of England and the USA., As alleged anti-fascist allies, made possible a strong anti-imperialist unity of the Albanian people.

The founding of the Communist Party November 8, 1941, then became Labour Party of Albania, the Anti-Fascist National Liberation Front, the construction of the National Liberation Army and People’s Councils and People Power in arms, sealed his victory the liberation of Albania in 1944, expelled the Italian and German armies and built the new socialist Albania, under the principles of Marxism-Leninism.

The triumph of the revolution and socialist construction for 40 years, with the Communist Party leadership after Labour Party, accomplished the following: the country’s total electrification by 1970, with 20% for export to other countries.

Industry and other non-agricultural industries contribute to the national income with about 66% in 1986, which in 1938 was just under 6% in 1956 was completely eradicated illiteracy by 1938 represented 90%, the school system and higher education receive significant support, since 1955 Albania becomes an industrial-agrarian country and by 1983 the specific weight of industry accounts for 70% with respect to agriculture. In 1985 the industry extracts and produces more than 40 types of main raw materials, hydrocarbons and minerals, along with agriculture coming to meet 90% of raw material needs, the engineering industry produces industrial equipment of complete factories and 90% of the spare parts requirements for light industry and food ensures 85% of popular consumer goods, heavy industry is a priority, but it keeps the light, which benefits the people’s living standards as well as The items of mass consumption.

This whole development is based on socialist forces themselves which guarantees the independence of the country, despite the siege and imperialist hostility. By 1985, Albania maintained trade relations with 50 countries with equality and mutual benefit and diplomatic relations with 95 states.

By 1985 the situation of women means the assertion of his personality at work, in society and family, with 32% of top-level specialists.

All the villages communicate with roads, have telephone service and state social security system, pensions and retirement for farmers and workers in the city, the people’s active participation in making important decisions is vital and defining. In this great work of socialist revolutionary transformation played important role in the figure and thought of Enver Hoxha.

But extraordinary Albania suffered a blow as all the world revolutionary movement as a result of the siege and the pressure of imperialism and revisionism whose threats and dangers are always present as long as humanity does not end with imperialism and build socialism and communism in the world.
