President Begaj complimented the visit of the Board Members to Tirana, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Albania and the USA. The President referred to it as an important jubilee year, praising the excellent bilateral relations of strategic partnership between the two countries.


President Begaj appreciated the particular contribution the Foundation has made from the beginning of its activities in 1995, for the support of private initiatives, assistance in the consolidation of Albania’s market economy, but also the support given to other national crucial sectors, which suffer from lack of investments.

The Head of State appreciated the Foundation’s commitments in supporting projects in the field of education, innovation, tourism and culture, and expressed the belief that the continuation of these projects will have a significant impact on communities and professionals in respective fields.
