Partners of Albanian water sector
And although Dutch companies are undoubtedly the best in the world in the water sector, they will find some very serious partners in Albania to carry out ambitious projects. Abkons, for instance, is one of the biggest consultancy companies in Albania. It has already expanded into Serbia, Kosovo, North Macedonia and the rest of the Western Balkans. It has much expertise in gas pipelines and hydropower, but also in disaster mitigation, dam rehabilitation and irrigation. In fact, the Albanian government hired Abkons to prepare and implement the integrated water resources management strategy.
We would like to join forces with Dutch specialists in the parts of the water sector relevant to us to create sustainable business and institutional cooperation. This will in turn offer integrated and sustainable solutions.
Big programmes in different water areas will probably start in the next few years, mostly funded by the EU, the World Bank and the National Government of Albania. So we expect further rapid development and we know for certain that Dutch expertise can boost this development. Hence my call: join us on 27 March to explore our joint approach for Albanian water challenges!”
