The president of the Calabria Region said it Roberto Occhiuto welcoming you to the regional citadel of Catanzaro the President of the Republic of Albania Bajram Begaj on an institutional visit to Calabria.

«There are many possibilities – added Occhiuto – to develop mutually useful collaborative relationships both as regards economic development and as regards other projects that we have already started talking about. We are honored to have President Begaj in Calabria who has been to Italy several times where he met the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella and the Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni. During his stay he will visit the Arbereshe communities of Calabria and verify how much friendship Calabria has for his country with which there are centuries-old ties.” “We asked President Begaj – Occhiuto said – to act as an interpreter to the Albanian government of the possibilities of collaboration that can be achieved between the Calabrian regional government and the Albanian one”.
