Ambassador Maitre stated that it is because of Lezha WSSC good performance that enabled these investments in the city of Lezha. “These investments are based on performance and this has been achieved by the Lezha WSSC, which is why we are investing here.  We do not focus only in drinking water but also the management of wastewater and rainwater. This is a good example of partnership beyond a project, and this partnership is established by both our governments. The whole purpose of this partnership is for Albania to be supported on its path towards European Union integration”, – said Ambassador Maitre.
