EU, 30 billion euros investment in the Balkans – Varhelyi: We are working behind the scenes for negotiations with Albania

At the end of the meeting within the Western Balkans Summit held in Tirana, Prime Minister Edi Rama and Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi gave a joint press conference. The commissioner made public the European Union’s plan for investments worth 30 billion euros in the Balkans.

The summit takes place just 2 weeks before the expected decision in Brussels to start negotiations for Albania and Northern Macedonia. Commissioner Varhelyi said that a positive decision regarding Albania is expected and that work is being done on this behind the scenes. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Edi Rama reiterated that the decision depends entirely on the will of the member states while Albania has done its homework.

Asked about the restriction of movement due to the Pandemic, Varhelyi said that decisions on this are made by each state according to its will.
