Juri Kim: Skavica the biggest contract, in order to have foreign investments, the rule of law must be strengthened
The Ambassador of the United States of America during her speech at the ceremony of the 20th anniversary of the American Chamber of Commerce in Albania, demanded the strengthening of the rule of law.
According to her, the strengthening of the rule of law will bring to Albania other investments besides the investment of the Skavica HPP.
Ambassador Kim praised the Albanians, but hoped that the new justice system would become operational as soon as possible.
"The initial step was very promising with the American company that signed an agreement for the construction of the Skavica Hydropower Plant. This will be the largest contract ever awarded to a single American company in the history of Albania and the USA. The great work now begins that we must make this a reality. I hope that this will mark the beginning of a longer list of American companies that decide to come to Albania. The rule of law needs to be strengthened. I repeat, we all know that the rule of law must be strengthened for foreign investments to come to the country. Albania has an extraordinary access to the world through the port and its strategic position as an entry point into Europe.
"Albanians have some of the best language skills that any people I have encountered anywhere in the world are determined, hardworking and hospitable," Kim said.
