“The opening of the first Albanian School in Korça turned March 7th into a day of celebration for all teachers and educators," said Rector Dika. In addition, the Rector stressed the fact that education today must have a primary strategic place for any country that wants to achieve progress. "I hope that awareness about the role of education will strengthen both development and access to Western standards," noted Prof. Dika.
