Textile sector with new opportunities for collaboration between Albanian and Dutch businesses

A workshop named "Opportunities for cooperation between Albania and the Netherlands in the textile and footwear industry" was held in Tirana. The seminar was organized with the support of the Dutch Embassy in Tirana, in cooperation with CSR Netherlands, MVO Nederland and AIDA, as the main Albanian partner in this project.

Ambassador Dewi van de Weerd gave a speech at the opening event, where she outlined the extensive cooperation with AIDA - the Albanian Investment Development Agency during the last years, in order to establish potential trade connections among businesses of both countries. Mr. Pellumb Qosej, as the representative of AIDA, made a presentation of the Albanian textile sector. The favourable investment climate for Dutch businesses and the opportunities for new investments in this sector were discussed.

During the event were held B2B meetings between 12 Dutch businesses within the textile and footwear industry and about 20 Albanian entrepreneurs that operate in this sector, exploring the opportunities for cooperation between them.
