Four airports, two new commercial ports in Durrës and Vlora

During a meeting held today in Fier, Prime Minister Edi Rama said that "we want to continue with the construction of airports in our country".

As for Vlora airport, he said that finally there is a winner. "After all that torture due to the pandemic, we sign the contract in a few days and the work begins", - said Rama.

According to him, immediately after the start of work at Vlora airport, the competition for Saranda airport will be opened and there will be four airports.

 “Those who say that we do not need airports, but we need bread, I tell them that airports are bakeries. They are not bus stops, because they bring in people who are consumers and thus increase the number of services due to the airport. It is well known that one euro to invest in an airport turns into a minimum of 23 euros in the economy" stressed Rama.

The Prime Minister announced that work is continuing on the construction of new tourist ports." The tourist port of Durres is the largest in our history, as a foreign investment by the famous company that also has built the port of Dubai, "Rama said. 

 "Both of these ports will make the two new commercial ports to be built on the outskirts of the two cities," Rama said.
