Honorary Consul attends Arabian National Day

Postuar në 27 September 2013 by Administrator

The international day of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gathered diplomats of Tirana in a special reception.
The event was organized to celebrate the 84-th anniversary of the foundation of this kingdom. High officials of Albania, the head of the parliament Ilir meta, the head of the opposition and the mayor of Tirana, Lulzim Basha, the minister of transportation Edmond Haxhinasto, leaders of diplomatic legations in our country, businessmen, leaders of religious institutions and personalities of culture were present in this event. The Honorary Council of Mexico in Albania mr. Ylli Ndroqi was also one of the special guests of this event.

According to Ambassador Abdullah Alabdukarim this is a very important moment in the history of Aaudi Arabia since this date represents the unification of the territories of Arabia in 1932 under the leaderships of the king of that time Abdul Aziz al Saud.

“This party is very important, since I can remind you that king Abdul Aziz, with his efforts and attempts managed to join all territories of Saudi Arabia. Since that time Saudi Arabia has faced a quick development in every domain, especially in economics and health-care” stated ambassador Abdullah Alabdukarim.

This party took place in Albania and the relationships of both countries have intensively strengthened, especially during the last years. A series of infrastructural projects have finished and will finish in the territory of the Albanian Republic.

“The cooperation between Albania and Saudi Arabia has been successful especially during the last years. This fact can be noticed in the high number of commercial exchanges and in the visits of high officials of our both countries. During this period of time Saudi Arabia has completed a series of important infrastructural projects in Albania and it has released specific funds for these projects. I would like to mention the highway of Tirana-Elbasan, but Saudi Arabia will also be present in other investments in Albania,” emphasized the ambassador.

Every year on september 23rd, Saudi Arabia commemorates the foundation of the country in 1932 and its territory has remained the same for 84 years. In 1932 the king of Al Saud dynasty declared the unification of all the territories in a single state and after his attempts which lasted for 32 years, he finally managed to create a single state for the first time in our history.\

This state was founded on Islamic principles, away from the influence of other sectarian organizations. This date marks not only the unification of Arabic territories but it also marks the strong turn of this country in the path of development in all domains, especially in infrastructure, health-care and education. Saudi Arabia managed to build models which were later followed from other Arabic and Islamic countries. Saudi Arabia continues to develop under the leadership of current king, Abdullah bin Abdul aziz.

Economic forum Albania – Mexico

Postuar në 15 May 2013 by Administrator

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.
