Science, technology and innovation are essential at all stages of development. There is a close correlation between technological change and development. Developing countries have difficulties to expand their potentials toward modernization, know-how and innovation due to high costs and competition that comes from developed countries. Albania due to limited investments in research and innovation is importing automation technologies from developed countries. Despite great advantages of such technologies and the fact that nowadays these technologies are becoming less expensive; the market in Albania is still conservative. In this paper we try to review literature analysing the constraints of private and public sector toward the adoption of automation innovative technologies and in the meantime present successful examples.
