Albania’s Integration in EU

Darjel Sina, Arjan Vasjari

Abstract


Albania’s European integration represents a main national priority. As such, it requires that relations with the European Union be raised at the level of partnership. Our foreign policy toward the relationship with the EU and the Member States will aim at ensuring the necessary political and economic support that accelerates the transformation reforms and brings us even closer to the Community’s standards. The partnership with the EU and the Member States will be further improved also due to the boost in our programming and implementing capacities. The Government of Albania estimates that the interests of the compatriots living in the neighbouring countries are not different from the European interests of our citizens. On this basis, we shall encourage any initiatives in the countries where they live that regard the integrating processes as inseparable from the need of strengthening democratic standards and institutions according to the Euro-Atlantic model. We assess that the national interests of Albanians anywhere they live, jointly with their legitimate representatives, converge in the acceleration of standard reforms of development and European integration.
