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.

Postuar në 15 May 2013 by Administrator

“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.

Plan of Guadalupe

Postuar në 27 March 2013 by Administrator

The Council of Mexico celebrated today the Plan of Guadalupe inititated on 26 march 1913. The plan of Guadalupe was a document drafted on march 23, 1913 by Venustiano Carranza in response to the overthrow and execution of Francisco I. Madero, then president of Mexico. Tt was formally proclaimed three days later on march 26 in Carranza’s Hacienda.

Madero’s overthrow was the work of Victoriano Huerta, who was Madero’s top general and had sided with the opposition forces during the Mexican revolution. The document accused Huerta of restoring a dictatorship and committing treason by executing the constitutional leader of Mexico.

There were seven parts to this plan which purported to remove any claim of legitimacy Huerta’s government might have had, reinstated government powers into officials loyal to Madero, and announced a call for elections once peace had been restored to the country.

This document was the immediate answer of the constitutionalists forces against the military coup d’etat against the Madero regime which, from its inception confronted uprisings from civilian and military groups discontent with its way of governing, seeking the restoration of the Porfirista regime.
for the Plan of Guadalupe, Venustiano Carranza would say in 1917, was “the war cry that the most select of the Mexican youth propelled to the four corners of the nation against the triumphant iniquity, and that cry was no more than the vibrant and sonorous expression of the national conscience, an expression that re-assumed the firm intention, the deliberate will of the Mexican people of not consenting any more to a pretorianism that would again seize the destinies of the nation. Under such virtue, with the Plan of Guadalupe was perfectly planted – the issue of legality against the usurpation of the law, against the disturbance of the free institutions; against the military dictatorship.”

Two words about Mexico

Postuar në 22 March 2013 by Administrator

The United Mexican States, usually referred to as, Mexico, is a federal constitutional republic in North America. With an area of 2 million square kilometers, it ranks fifth largest country in the Americas and the 13th largest in the world. Mexico has a population of 111 million people, which makes it the 11-th most populated country in the world. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states and a Federal District. Its capital is Mexico City.

Mexico is part of North America. It borders the United States of America in the north and the Pacific Ocean in the south and west; Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea in the southeast; and the Gulf of Mexico in the east.

The northern part of the country has a very hot and dry climate because its mountains are a barrier for oceanic winds. In the majority of the central plateau, the tropical climate gets milder as height increases. Over the height of 2000 meters, there is a mountainous climate. On the shores and Yucatán Peninsula, temperatures are elevated by the tropical climate.


Mexico is an industrial country and rich on natural resources. It is the world’s largest producer of silver and is rich in methane, gold, cooper, iron, zinc and lead. It’s most developed industries are metallurgy and the extraction and refining of petroleum. Its vast work force is a major attraction for many foreign investors, mainly from the U.S.A. Mexico’s economy ranks second in Latin America and twelfth worldwide.


During the last 40 years, the country has seen a boom in population growth. For many Mexicans, the only hope was immigrating to the United States. Its official language is Spanish, which is spoken by 90% of its population. Other languages include, Amerindian (Nahuatl, Mayan etc.). Over 90% of the population belongs to the catholic religion.

Two of its most populated areas are the central plateau and the American border. Important cities are Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey.

Maya (200 A.D – 900 A.D)

The Maya were one of the most advanced civilizations of the pre-Columbian era, characterized by developed and important ceremonial centers (whose symbol was the pyramid). They are the founders of Chichén Itzá, one of the most important cities of prehistoric Mexico and Palenque.


Tourism is one of the main sources of revenue for the Mexican economy. The central government and specific states are more and more trustful of the economic benefits from native and international visitors, albeit oil resources are ending and it is both difficult and expensive to explore for new oil reserves in greater subterranean arteries. New states like Quintana Roo build their budget exclusively with revenue from tourism. Its population is made of immigrants from across the country and foreigners. In the Carmen Plateau, for instance, there live many Italians.


Mexico is a presidential republic and its state leader is Enrique Peña Nieto
