About us - structure and organisation

This section provides information on the European Union Delegation to Albania — its mission in the country and the key members of the team.

The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Albania is a permanent diplomatic mission. The Delegation was established in 1993, when the European Commission decided to upgrade its Office of the Special Envoy to a full Delegation in the light of the positive democratic development, which had took place.

The Delegation's main tasks are the following:

  • Facilitate the development of political and economic relations between the EU and Albania in the framework of the Stabilization and Association Process (SAP), which is the strategy for helping Albania in its path towards integration into the EU.
  • Managing EU Assistance programmes.
  • Disseminating information on the EU, informing the Albanian general public, decision makers and opinion formers about the integration process, EU institutions and its policies.

Head of Delegation of the European Union in Albania, since September 2018, is Mr. Luigi Soreca.

The EU in Albania, Working for Albania in the EU


A prosperous and peaceful country, a future Member State of the European Union (EU), together with all Balkan neighbours, is the aspiration we have shared with the citizens of Albania, since the establishment of the Delegation in 1993.

Combining the resources of the EU institutions and EU countries, the Delegation assists the institutions of Albania at all levels, the business community, civil society and citizens of the country to make this future happen.

This is the website of our Delegation where you will find useful information on the political and economic relations of the EU with Albania, and on EU assistance, programmes and projects in the country and throughout the regions. You will also find important news, links and information from and about the EU, its institutions and policies and its most important actors.

We very much hope that this site will help to answer questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us directly if you require further information.
