25/08/2009

TIRANA, Albania -- Prime Minister Sali Berisha stressed on Monday (August 24th) that EU membership will be the focus of the government's new mandate. "This is a process based on merits, implementation of reforms and accomplishment of standards that the government is committed to fulfilling," Berisha assured Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe President Pierre Rene Hubert Marie van der Linden during a meeting in Tirana. Berisha briefed him on economic developments, prompting van der Linden to point out that Albania can potentially attract bigger foreign investment in terms of the economy, tourism, culture and agriculture.
