Monday, 28 May 2018 | 00:00

Representatives of Durres Port Authority (APD) and the Croatian Rijeka Port Authority (APR) signed on Friday a memorandum of understanding to widen bilateral cooperation in the field of maritime transport and port industry.

Executive Director General of APD Afrim Bakaj said that the agreement aims to extend cooperation in several areas, including the creation of conditions for a ferry line for passengers and vehicles which will unite the two cities.

According to Bakaj, the important steps help Albania’s integration into the European Union, a process in which Croatia as a EU member plays a very important role.

Meanwhile, Croatian Ambassador to Albania Sanja Bujas Juraga underlined at the ceremony that “I am very happy that the cooperation that started two years ago is concretizing in a bilateral cooperation agreement between our two ports.”

The two parties agreed to co-operate on issues related to economic promotion and cooperation, in order to increase trade exchange.
