Investimet e Huaja Direkte (angl. Foreign Direct Investmnets) jane nje faktor i rendesishem qe ndikon ne rrijten e Bruto Produktit Vendor te nje vendi, andaj nje analize e mirefillte e tyre eshte me rendesi te gjithanshme ekonomike per faktore te ndryshem jo vetem ekonomike. Nga anliza e te dhenave te mara nga Bankat Qendrore te vendeve perkatese, EBRD, Bankes Boterore, publikime shkencore te Agjensioneve te ndryshme nga vendet e ndryshme Ballkanike, u vertetua se IHD ne Shqiperi dhe vendet tjera jane ne rritje te vazhdueshme, si tregues i mire i zhvillimit Ekonomik dhe ngritjes së mireqenjes per qytetaret e regjionit, e sidomos Shqiperise, njashtu kjo tregon rrugen qe ndjek Shqiperia drejt Globalizimit.
Ne kete studim mbi te gjitha fokusohemi ne vertetimin apo hudhjen poshte te hipotezes se: "Turqia investon me shume ne Serbi se sa ne Shqiperi". Por une do te fokusohem te gjeje gjithashtu se kush nga importuesit e medhenj ne vendet tona ka investimet me te medhaja ne Serbi, qe fatkeqesisht del te jete Italia, ndersa si me besniku del Zvicra.
U vërtetua se Investimet e huaja direkte të Turqisë në Shqiperi janë nga më të medhajat në rajon nga vendet jashta BE-se, por njëkohësisht u vërtetua se Investimet Turke në Serbi janë të papërfillshme e as qe krahasohen me ato te realizuara në Shqiperi, ku qe nga viti 2007 ne kumulativ arijne vleren prej 2 Mlrd USD, kjo paraqet shumën më të larte ne rajon edhe ate ndaj nje vendi te BE-se si Greqia, ku investimet Turke janë me te uleta, me perjashtim te Romanise dhe Bullgarise me 4 Mlrd USD dhe 2,2 Mlrd USD respektivisht.

The History of “Pokémon Go” is a story about the people and the mechanism of the International Financial Markets.
In the period of few days, the fever of Nintendo’s Game App "Pokémon Go" conquered the World. Nobody was looking anymore toward their way, rather their mobile screens, showing some Monsters in the real world. People were running around like crazy to catch them in order to get as much points as possible.
As I asked one of the players in Vienna Burggarten, where more than hundreds of people were hunting Pokémon’s in a early summer morning: What did you win from this Game, he answered shortly: Nothing, maybe just Prestige!” In fact someone won or lost something!
After "Pokémon Go", the World became different, due to the distractions many Traffic Accidents happened and continue to happen, in some Countries even Police got influenced, Army interventions took place, and so long.
User played like crazy, not only had them, the Stock Markets Worldwide played like crazy too. The shares of the Japanese company Nintendo in stock Markets started to grow steadily. “Nintendo’s” shares grew from 125 Euro per share, to 210 Euro per share, and continued to grow further.
The Market value of Nintendo doubled in around 38 Billion Euro or 42 Billion USD. This growth surpassed even the Market Value of the giant "Sony".
This Game brought hope for the financial Markets in Japan. Nintendo was the cause for the biggest trade ever of shares in one single day that ever happened in the Market History of Japan.
Even though Nintendo did not invent the game, the later was invented from the company "Niantic". Nintendo gave only the License rights, which were published for the first time in 1996 for the "Game boy".
Nintendo is involved in the Development of “Niantic” and the “Pokémon Company”. "Niantic" once upon the time belonged fully to the company "Google".
The Shareholders and Investors thought that the enthusiasm for "Pokémon Go" will influence the “mother” Corporation of "Super Mario" and "Pikachu". This Hype was a good sign for Nintendo's entry to the Market of Game Apps.
The euphoria was already finished; end of July brought cold times for Nintendo. Shareholders and Investors started to sell their shares, the harvest times were in the past, they asked for stabile investments.
Thus, share prices of Nintendo started to shrink, and these were not the only factors that lead to this.
For example, Nintendo declared officially that the effects of “Pokémon Go” Hype will not bring any further fortune to the company, rather a slight or "limited influence". The Company officials said that they evaluated already the influences of this game toward its processes. This was not well accepted from the investors. Also, many rumors about problems with servers in Japan influenced negatively the share prices.
Japan, is not only the Homeland of Nintendo, but, for decades remained the biggest Smartphone-related Games Market of the World. (According to some analysts, China surpassed Japan in 2015).
Many people started to ask their self’s, how much is Nintendo's max capitalization from this game? It was very unclear!
In the process of development and customization of this game, three companies were involved: the developer "Niantic", the game giant "Nintendo", and the Pokémon Company "Pokémon Go".
"Nintendo" is and was partly owner of "Pokémon Go" and "Niantic", but, it was needed time until these companies saw any real money; others were fortunate in beforehand.
In this sense, owners of App Stores from Android and iOS i.e. companies “Google” and “Apple” saw these money first. This was a cocktail, which with time became too hot for the venture capitalists.
If one once played a mobile game, he probably knows that this can lead to an absolute race. This trend can happen to go backward also, some games get out of Mode quickly.
In the Market can happen to come another Game that can gain players interests and delivers new emotions.
Two Months after the game Pokémon Go in the App Store came, 500 Mio users downloaded the Game. “They were travelling around 8.7 Billion km, in their run to find Pokémon’s Monsters in the streets of their cities Worldwide” – declared John Hanke, the CEO of "Niantic", in a Press conference.
He added, “This means we influenced people’s lives and their movement, instead of staying at home they were running outside through Parks and Avenues on monster hunt”.
Actually there are not any more people in the Parks like before; as a result "Nintendo" lost 15 Million of its users. Around 30 Million users remained.
From a crazy popular Game, Pokémon remained a well accepted Game. Thus, "Pokémon Go" took his place in the History of the Gaming Industry. Even it remained a potential influencing power for further Game developments.
In general, this is not "the end" of “Pokémon Go”. Because, in every game is the same, at the beginning people just download some game from courtesy, and they get off very quickly, the remaining ones are the real Hardcore Fans. The "Forbes Magazine" wrote: "Nobody can jet conclude the death of this app".
In the late summer of 2016, the Developer "Niantic" and “Nintendo” came with an original idea of developing weapons for hunt of Pokémon Monsters in the real world. Further they developed the concept of "sponsored venues", where some special Monsters could appear. In this chain of venues, appeared to be interested also McDonalds of Japan.
Their intention was to attract potential new clients that on their intention to hunt Pokémon Monsters will end up in buying McDonalds products.
"Nintendo" developed also additional hardware, which came with "Pokémon Go Plus", a bracelet device that informed the player as soon as a Monster got close to them, a LED light started to flush, some players were ready also to spending money in order to buy additional functionalities.
Not only this; “Pokémon Go” achieved to be present worldwide in form of puppets and mascots, from the Fifth Avenue of Manhattan to the Charles Elyse of Paris, side by side with the comical figures like "Charlie Brown" or "Ditto".
All these movements in the real World are calculated in real money. After we look closer the Share prices of "Nintendo" at the end of the year 2016, is evident that “Nintendo” did a great job, shares remained 100 Euro above their price of June 2016 (before the intro of "Pokémon Go"). Not bad for a beginning, what do you think?
