The German Chancellor also mentioned the tasks for Albania. “The rapid integration of the six states of the Western Balkans into the European Union is of strategic importance to my government.

We would like to welcome them as soon as possible as members of the European Union. The essence of the negotiations remains the strengthening of the rule of law, therefore, it is good that members of criminal networks, as well as high-ranking corrupt officials in the region during this time, have been indicted and punished.

“Of course, we also need a transparent economic environment with legal certainties” – said the German chancellor.

Germany is attracting a good part of Albanian professionals, and the meeting discussed the flight from Albania to this country of doctors and nurses.

Scholz said he felt the responsibility: “Our country feels responsible that its need for jobs is not only covered by EU countries, but also from beyond the EU.

We have elaborated the legislation for the emigration of qualified labor to Germany and with this the market of Germany and Europe is opened”, he said.
