Tirana, 26 October 2015/ Independent Balkan News Agency

With the new reforms that have been in place, Albanian authorities are expecting more foreign investors in the country.

Minister of European Integration, Klajda Gjosha, who is on an official visit to Spain, met with the State Secretary for European Affairs in the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Fernando Eguidazu and spoke with him about the reforms taking place in Albania.

Gjosha underlined that the Albanian government is making a number of important reforms, which benefit the European future of the country.

“European integration remains Albania’s national priority. We are determined to finalize all the reforms, as they are necessary not only to take the process forward, but also to develop the country, especially in the economic domain, thus offering a better future to Albanians”, the minister said.

Gjosha informed Mr. Eguidazu on the work done for the five priorities, where she said that the Albanian government is aware that without the finalization of the reform in the justice system, no negotiations can be launched.

The minister said that the expectations are for a positive progress report by the European Commission which will praise the reforms carried out in the past year in Albania.

“This reform will restore the trust of the citizens on the justice system, but on the other hand, it will benefit Albania to attract more foreign investors, who will find security in a democratic state. It’s a crucial reform which requires consensus and which goes beyond political parties”, Gjosha said.

Meanwhile, the State Secretary for European Affairs at the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Fernando Eguidazu, praised the progress made by Albania and said that Spain will support Albania in its European path. Mr. Eguidazu said that the progress report which will soon be published, will offer a better picture for the achievements that Albania has had in the process of integration. /ibna/
