By posting their photos at #coloursofalbania2019, the social network users immediately enter this competition, thus turning into ‘digital diplomats’ to disseminate the colours of Albania across the world.

In his welcoming speech, Acting Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Gent Cakaj underlined the length of this initiative, which has been going on for five years now, featuring multiplied interaction across the networks, and an extraordinary impact on the young people in particular.

In her speech, Minister of Culture Elva Margariti dwelt on the importance of the initiative intended to help promote Albania’s beauties and values, as well as the potential the technology offers in building capacities in order to communicate and share with others.

This event was attended by members of the diplomatic corps in Tirana, young men and women who are photography enthusiasts, representatives from the various institutions, and tourist operators.
