MOSCOW, September 20 (Itar-Tass) — Albania seeks Russia’s participation in energy, mineral resource development, tourism, agriculture and construction, Albanian ambassador to Russia Sokol Gjoka told a bilateral business forum in Moscow on Tuesday.
“Interaction between the Chambers of Commerce and Industry can give a fresh impetus to stronger cooperation between our countries,” he said. “We’ve established good relations with Russia’s government, Energy Ministry and Chamber of Commerce and Industry. We would like to move from words to deeds.”
The diplomat named the lack of information about Albania among potential investors as the main obstacle for stronger ties between the two countries’ businesses.
“It is necessary to develop the exchange of information and the Albanian embassy in Russia is ready to help all those who wish it,” Gjoka said. “The most promising areas of cooperation are energy, mineral resource development, tourism, agricultural business and infrastructure construction. Albania is interested in Russia’s participation in these areas.”
After the business forum the two countries’ Chambers of Commerce and Industry signed a cooperation agreement.
