Veliaj gathers counterparts of the Municipalities of the Region: Soon we start the tour 'Come to your house'
The Mayor of Tirana Erion Veliaj welcomed today in Tirana the counterparts of the Municipalities of the Region. Where they discussed the opening of the country after the Covid 19 pandemic and cooperation to help each other.
"Sometimes crises are also opportunities, opportunities to unite us, to cooperate, opportunities to become a little better, opportunities to assess the readiness and hardening of our organizations, so definitely a challenge but also an opportunity." , said Veliaj during his speech.
The mayor stated that he is happy that this meeting coincides with the opening of Albania after the pandemic.
"We have had several days in a row where we had a single digit of the numbers of infected and if we continue with this trend Albania will go towards a final opening. In "Skënderbej" square there are two spaces, one where you go and get vaccinated and the other where we will see the European Football Championship. This is an adaptation metaphor. We will have to live with the disease and this battle, we will have to live with the daily routine and give signals of a life that continues ", said Veliaj.
The topics of the meeting focused on economic recovery, mainly through tourism after the pandemic.
We must make sure that the economy of our countries based on tourism survives, so the "Come to your home" tour is important. We have the idea of ??an open border scheme to ensure that tourism money remains in the pockets of Albanians, to remain in the tourist structures of our cities ", concluded the Mayor.
Today's meeting coincided with the day when the League of Prizren is commemorated.
