The implementation of the system of 3 fast public transport lines starts in autumn
The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, has declared after a meeting with the Secretary of State at the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany, Niels Annen, that this autumn the operation of 3 fast urban transport lines will start in Tirana.
"We have agreed with GIZ and KFHE to start the rapid public transport system. For this, I want to thank the German government, the German embassy, our GIZ and KFË team, because we had an extraordinary cooperation to bring it to this point and now we must start implementing it," said Veliaj, added that this project will start this fall.
Another important project that the mayor highlighted is the reconstruction of the dormitories.
"Your precious help for the dormitories makes it easier for us to treat students who come to Tirana with dignity, first as students from another city and then they become permanent residents and are part of the contingent of talent that this city has and that keeps our city's economy so strong," said Veliaj.
The German Secretary of State, for his part, said: "We are really impressed by your leadership. I think you have shown some important aspects of your daily life, which increase sustainability and make a contribution to the goals we have set," says Niels Annen.
