A Social Protection Agreement, which enables pension transfer for 35,000 Albanian emigrants, was signed in Brussels on Monday.
The agreement was signed by Albanian Minister of Social Welfare and Youth Erion Veliaj and Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Social Affairs and Public Health Laurette Onkelinx.

When we asked the Minister of Social Welfare and Youth Erion Veliaj regarding Italy and Greece, he replied that Albania is working in that direction too, but it’s more difficult because of the cost this operation needs.
Ka, por jane te veshtira si negociata prej kostos @AlbNews: Po me Italinë dhe Greqinë ka ndonje plan për ta realizuar këtë lloj marrëveshje?
