President of the Republic, H.E. Ilir Meta received today the Assistant Secretary of the US Department of State for Education and Culture, Mrs. Maria Royce.

President Meta appreciated the importance of her visit to further consolidate and strengthen our relations in the field of education and culture.

“We must aim,” noted President Meta, “that as many Albanian students as possible be educated in the United States, but at the same time, create the conditions for them to return to their country, to become its future leaders.”

“Albania welcomes the continuation of joint engagement in such areas as exchanges of students, academics or scholars of both countries.

“Cooperation in the fields of education and culture between Albania and the United States will serve the future of our country and will promote intercultural understanding, as a real opportunity to bring our peoples closer,” said the Head of State.
