Memaliaj in the district of Tepelenë in southern Albania is a small industrial town established in 1946 to support the mining activity in the area. In 1990 the production of coal was around 500,000 tons per year. After the fall of communism and introduction of a free market economy the mine closed as the town fell into economic stagnation.
