ALDA at the Ministry of State on Local Issues of Albania

On 28 May, ALDA’s delegation composed of Mr Bernardo Notarangelo, member of the Governing Board, and Aldo Xhani, ALDA project manager, met Mr Enea Hoti, advisor of Mr Bledi Cuci, Minister of State on Local Issues of Albania.


The meeting was an occasion to showcase ALDA’s multiannual work in the country in promoting good governance and citizen participation at local level as well as the process of relaunch and strengthening of the Local Democracy Agency set up back in 2009. It was also a unique opportunity of being informed on the state of play of the decentralisation reform under discussion in Albania and the stronger role that the LDA could acquire within this framework.

Mr Hoti provided up to date information on both the Territorial and Administrative Reform that aims at rationalising the current territorial division through new local bodies (39 or 47 municipalities) and the Decentralisation strategy that will redefine and better clarify the competencies of the new local entities.

Mr Hoti also welcomed ALDA and it’s the LDA in Albania to keep working for the integration of the country in the European Union through the promotion of good governance and citizen participation. Only through active citizens, Albania can overcome its current difficulties and become a full candidate to join the European family, he said.
