“How Albania has changed, and together with it, the economy of the country, this is narrated by the 24-year-old history of Klik Ekspo Group’s Tirana International Fair itself.
This exhibition every year resembles to the ambitions that their organizers had in 1994 when they dared to imagine such an activity in unmatched conditions with today’s conditions, and believed in the potential of this country’s economy, when there were very few people who trusted that under such circumstances the initiative could become true, and which today is materialized in a new edition with a much larger and diverse presence. Challenges are great, and are much more complex and only the power of imagination and trust can make us all approach the challenges with the real chance to win them. International companies that arrive today will not only discover new investment opportunities, but they can also discover reliable partners with whom they can cooperate and develop the ambitions of investing and succeeding through entrepreneurship in this country“, from the speech of Mr. Prime Minister during the Opening Ceremony.
