Tirana, July 19, 2013
The acting Prime Minister Sali Berisha said today that the full funds for the completion of the Road of Arber, which he has considered as the second road of the nation, have been secured.
“Dear friends, after more than a year of negotiations with the Chinese authorities, the no. 1 Chinese construction company in the world CSCEC presented an offer for the full construction of the remaining 27 km of the Road of Arber including the tunnel of Qafe Murrize and the Bridge of Vashe. The company will make a full financing (concessionary) or a partial one for the construction of the road through a loan that the Chinese government allocates for this work. There’s also another option according to which the Albanian government may become co-funder with an amount of 70 million Euros. The offer has favorable terms in every aspect. It doesn’t increase public debt”, writes Berisha on Facebook. /ibna/
