However, I would like to say to you that you should be confident that this country needs you; it needs professional young people that have a virtuous character. Therefore, whether you think to work or study abroad, you should plan to turn back to contribute, to give as much as you could to our Albania. Only in this way it will become a better place.” – said he.
