The President appreciated their contribution to Tirana as the capital of Albania, as well as the generosity and hospitality they have shown to newcomers over the years from other Albanian territories.

“A part of our people’s history is engraved in Tirana. The capital, transformed over the years from a junction connecting the main roads of our regions into the main political, economic, social, and cultural center of the Albanians, is a success story,” President Begaj said in his welcoming speech.

Each generation has left its mark in history, architecture, urban planning, and above all, in its patriotic, nationalistic, and pro-Western spirit. Tirana and its citizens have been ahead of progress, turning it into the capital for all Albanians, wherever they may be,” the President declared in his speech.
