While many activities and endeavours had to slow down a bit, it doesn’t mean we let the situation stop us completely from undertaking actions and putting further efforts at enhancing EU integration process of our partner countries.
On 16 July 2020, within the project “Bashkitë për në Evropë/ Municipalities for Europe”, our Project team organised, coordinated and moderated an online meeting of the Head of the European Union Delegation to Albania, Ambassador Luigi Soreca with the Coordinators of EU Integration Units in all 61 Municipalities of Albania. Chief Negotiator of Albania in the EU, Ambassador Zef Mazi, Deputy Minister of Interior, Mrs. Romina Kuko and the Director of the Agency for Support of Local Self-Government, Mr. Bekim Murati, also participated in the event.
The meeting was a chance for Ambassador Soreca to praise the significant role of the network of EU Units, which has been created and coordinated by our Project team, in the EU integration process. He added: “You are EU ambassadors in your municipalities and I will be your voice”. Ambassador Soreca highlighted that the European Union has supported and will continue to support Albania, both politically and financially, on its way towards the European Union. This reassures us that our efforts, combined with the EU support, are bringing Albania closer to the finalisation of the integration process.
