Ilir Bejtja, deputy minister of energy and industry of Albania, asked the Energy Charter Secretariat to jointly organise a high-level forum in Tirana this year.

At a meeting in Brussels he and the organization’s secretary general Urban Rusnák discussed activities and priorities within the Energy Charter Process. Rusnák highlighted the ongoing consultations on establishing rules and principles for energy transit and the important role the Energy Charter can play in supporting countries to secure the investments required to implement the COP21 Paris agreement’s goals and objectives, the secretariat said.

Bejtja acknowledged the value and the potential of the Energy Charter globally and in particular in the regional context of the Western Balkan countries with regard to future investments in electricity and gas interconnections.
