Prime Minister Edi Rama during his presence at the Tirana Forum for Infrastructure Connection with the countries of the Western Balkans and Europe, spoke about 3 railway lines that will connect Durrës with Montenegro, Northern Macedonia and Pristina.
Among other things, he stressed that these lines will increase co-operation and boost investment in the country.
“It has been a long process, but even more so with the EBRD, for reasons that have not been easy to understand. Currently we have to connect Durrës with Montenegro in the sense of railway, as it does not make sense. On the other hand, the unification of Durrës with Hani Hoti and Montenegro will boost trade. We look forward to working on the other Durrës-Prishtina railway and then connecting to Nis, which brings investment in a wider regional network. I am not putting it on the priority table, but these three are priorities. Another segment is Durrës-Northern Macedonia, which will be meaningful for the region. It will be more important in parallel with the work we have started for the New Port of Durres, which will be more dignified from an environmental point of view. This was in terms of railways and roads. Of course, we want to be able to accompany the Durrës-Northern Macedonia railway project with infrastructure projects and we will overcome some obstacles in the current situation. The rest is about digital history, opening up a new horizon for young people. We have many talented young people who need to be socialized through a comprehensive way to present themselves in the digital world, “Rama said./ ibna
