Message from the Ambassador

Dear visitor, 

A prosperous and peaceful country, a future Member State of the European Union (EU), together with all Balkan neighbours, is the aspiration we have shared with the citizens of Albania, since the establishment of the Delegation in 1993.

Combining the resources of the EU institutions and EU countries, the Delegation assists the institutions of Albania at all levels, the business community, civil society and citizens of the country to make this future happen.

This is the website of our Delegation where you will find useful information on the political and economic relations of the EU with Albania, and on EU assistance, programmes and projects in the country and throughout the regions. You will also find important news, links and information from and about the EU, its institutions and policies and its most important actors.

We very much hope that this site will help to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us directly if you require further information.

Luigi Soreca, Ambassador of the European Union to Albania.
