"For several years now, Albanian citizens have shown strong support for their country's accession to the EU. They know their daily lives will improve while their country moves forward on the path towards the EU. Further progress will depend on Albania's capacity to strengthen this common national objective and deliver on reforms. The EU is committed to assist Albania achieve this goal and I am confident that this year's programme will visibly encourage a sustained pace of reforms in the country", stated Commissioner Füle today after the EU announced it will invest €81 million to support key reforms in Albania. The funds will be used to address key priorities such as the reform of the judiciary, fight against organised crime, and the reform of the public administration system.
