 WE LOVE VJOSA AND WE WILL PROTECT IT, President Meta reacts for the protection of Vjosa valley

President Ilir Meta has evaluated the proposal of 20 environmental organizations, local and foreign, addressed to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, for the creation of the Vjosa National Park. Through a Facebook post, President Meta called on the government to listen to the voice of the community, environmental activists and scholars for the preservation of natural heritage.
"I welcome the formalization of the proposal of over 20 environmental organizations, local and foreign, addressed to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, for the creation of the Vjosa National Park.
The government should listen to the voice of the community, environmental activists, academia, local and foreign personalities and urgently withdraw from any arbitrary project that destroys this national natural wealth and heritage, of extraordinary importance and great tourist potential.
We are determined to continue our tireless efforts to prevent by democratic means any arbitrary, corrupt and dubious decision-making of the Government for the construction of hydropower plants on the Vjosa River.
The whole valley should be declared a National Park!
WE LOVE VJOSA AND WE WILL PROTECT IT! "- writes President Meta on Facebook
