TIRANA, November 25
Increased cooperation between Albania and Hungary may help to increase the presence of foreign investors and the number of Hungarian tourists in the country. These and other issues were discussed during a meeting held on Thursday in Tirana by Albanian Minister of Environment Lefter Koka and the Hungarian Minister of State for Environmental affairs Zsolt V. Nemeth.
“Albania is a country rich in natural resources and its potentials for attracting tourists in our country is the main priority,” Minister Koka stated while he invited Hungarian investors to come and invest in the Albanian sectors of environment and agriculture.
Moreover, Koka stressed that the intensification of relations between both countries, strengthening of capacities and experience exchange are a guarantee for the sustainable development of Albania.
On his part, Minister Nemeth said that Hungary supports the process for opening the negotiations for the European Union membership by the European Commission.
“Hungary has a long experience on environment protection, thus it has a lot to offer to Albania in this sector. On the other hand, even Hungary may benefit from Albania in terms of the process on climatic changes,” the Hungarian Minister said.
Further on, Koka invited his counterpart to encourage Hungarian investors on the major opportunities that they can find in Albania and also tourists, who can have the opportunity to explore the beautiful Albanian nature and all that it can offer.
Nemeth expressed commitment to boost cooperation especially in the environment sector, air quality improvement, integrated management of waste, ecotourism in protected areas and export of Albanian agricultural products.
