The main topic of this activity was "Gjergj Kastrioti in the Albanian economy" focused especially on the marketing of the Scanderbeg's symbol in the Albanian economy.
Meta held a speech in front of the attendants thanking the organizers of this activity and appreciating the figure of Scanderbeg.
"In this jubilee year of the celebration of the 550th anniversary of the death of our national hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg, we should reflect with our national consciousness how these values and historical heritage are embedded and perpetuated in the promotion of our economy and the export potential of Albanian autochthonous products." said Meta.
He talked also for the Albanian products who can be traded internationally with the mark "Made in Albania".
"The story of Skanderbeg's cognac success should inspire us to create other original products with the same "branding - Made in Albania" that can be traded internationally using the sketchy name, the image and symbolism of our Skanderbeg - the story of who knows no bounds," added Meta.
