The opening of the honorary mexican consulate in tirana a few months ago has been noted as the first effort to bring albania closer to Mexico. Besides diplomatic relations, the first sector which is interested is the business sector for collaboration.
In this spirit, the honorary consul of mexico in Tirana Ylli Ndroqi has enabled the two countries to recognize the potential of cooperation through business with the first economic forum between the two countries.
“As the honorary consul of the United States of Mexico in Tirana, I am pleased to open this business forum to strengthen relations between albania and mexico. The business forum will bring mexico and albania closer in the field of trade, tourism and industry. Given that the honorary mexican consulate opened only three months ago here in Albania, we have made immediate contact to offer to Albanian businesses the possibility of coordination with mexican businesses,” said Ylli Ndroqi, honorary mexican consulor.
The head of the albanian chamber of commerce and industry Nikolin Jaka described it as an excellent opportunity that the consulate has given to albanian businesses to cooperate.
“It is a pleasure for me to be part of this important forum. First of all i would like to identify the role and importance of those who have enabled the organization of this forum, and that comes through the honorary consulate opened in Albania through mr. Ndroqi. He made it possible to quickly inform but also to activate the embassy structures covering Albania to make a presentation of potential opportunities for cooperation and trade between mexico and Albania,” said Jaka.
The economic affairs adviser of the embassy of Mexico in Rome Elezar Navaro said he was enthusiastic in this cooperation with the now opened honorary consulate in Albania already creating a bridge of communication.
“It is a privilege that we are here to see the ways of cooperation between the two countries. We are here because we want to show you Mexico and we see with interest this cooperation which regulates this relationship. The consulate of Mexico in Albania opened at a time when your country is progressing rapidly towards development. We are seeing potential areas of cooperation in the import- export needs. Mexico is known for the export of beverages and albania for export of clothing and shoes. Our cooperation can be seen in some sectors,” said Navaro.
The mexican advisor presented to the Albanian businessmen the Mexico tourism and trade relationship to the world. Now with the opening of the consulate and intensification of forums of this nature , mexico and albania – regardless of geographic distances – are closer than ever in their diplomatic relations and trade.
