Speaking on the role of the youth and their contribution for the future of the country, the President said that he finds that in Albania there is a new generation of European mentality and competitive capacities being formed and added that young Albanians need support and European infrastructure, but asked at the same time, that they themselves, through democratic and institutional forms, be responsible, and try to be active in the decision-making process.
President Nishani also praised the contribution of young Albanians, who by participating in such forums provide a proper image of Albania, and added that a proper perception paves the way for all forms of communication and cooperation.
The meeting continued with exchanges of opinions on sensitive issues such as education, youth employment, cooperation of politicians with the youth, the image of the country, etc.
