Immediately after the occupation was completed Italy launched a redevelopment campaign of Albania which was being increased a,t the end of the year in connection with Italy's selfsuffi- cicncy campaign and general war preparedness.

Separated by 44 miles, these two points are capable of crisscrossing their fire in miel- Atlrlatlc.
