31 December 2020 The message of President Meta wishing a Happy New Year 2021
The year we left behind faced us with one of the most difficult challenges in the world.
The COVID-19 pandemic shook our lives in many ways.
Many of us lost our loved ones without even being able to say goodbye; others succeeded with extraordinary sacrifices.
Boundless gratitude to the doctors, nurses and all those who are still today, on the front lines of the fight against this pandemic.
In particular, this is the moment to pay homage to our unforgettable medical staff, who gave their lives in the line of duty.
Let their devotion, humanism and remembrance inspire us for more solidarity, cooperation, humility, compassion and love for one another.
Let us unite and work harder, coming to the aid especially of people who need it the most.
To try with all our might to rebuild the national economy, to create new opportunities and jobs for young people, to regain our destinies with the dignity and freedoms we deserve, to restore hope and trust.
The extraordinary vitality and love for the family and the Homeland have kept our nation alive and will give our beloved Albania the bright European future it deserves.
Dear Albanians wherever you are,
I wish you from the bottom of my heart, a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
Happy New Year!
