“We want to soon achieve our $1-billion trade volume goal with Albania”

Speaking at a joint press conference with Albanian Prime Minister Rama, President Erdoğan said: “Our trade volume reached some $853 million last year, having grown by nearly 68 per cent. Our goal is now to achieve our $1-billion trade volume goal in a short span of time.”

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Prime Minister Edi Rama of Albania delivered remarks to reporters following their tête-à-tête and the meeting between the delegations.

“THE BIGGEST INVESTOR IN ALBANIA WILL BE TÜRKİYE”

Stating that he discussed with Albanian Prime Minister Rama the economic relations between the two countries, President Erdoğan stressed: “Our trade volume reached some $853 million last year, having grown by nearly 68 per cent. Our goal is now to achieve our $1-billion trade volume goal in a short span of time. The biggest investor in Albania will be Türkiye, taking into account the contracting services as well. The total amount of our investments is 3.5 billion dollars. Over 600 companies of ours provide employment for nearly 15 thousand people. Obviously, we do not consider these figures to be sufficient, they should rise to much higher levels. I believe these figures will further increase with the strong support to be provided by Albanian officials.”
