The Latvian example inspires Albanian Mayors and their associations

A delegation composed of local and regional elected representatives, experts and a member of the National Agency for Territorial Reform from Albania participated in a study visit to Latvia, organised jointly with the Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments, from 24 to 26 November 2015. This visit was timely as the Albanian Parliament is discussing at present a new draft law on the organisation and functioning of local governance. The visit included presentations on the structure of the Latvian national association and its role in advocacy and in budgetary negotiations which provided the Albanian delegation with concrete examples of how the processes related to consultation among local government units and with the national authorities could be enhanced in Albania.
