Like the rest of the Balkan countries, Albania is facing a lot of difficulties. The transition process that the country is going through is quite complicated. In addition to it, the coronavirus pandemic has added a burden to the Albanian economy, travel, and tourism.
Therefore, Kornelia is working under very complicated conditions. She is trying hard to help Albanian tourism survive. Her efforts to promote the country, its beauties, and potential, locally, regionally, and internationally are of extreme value in the process of rebuilding the tourism industry. Her proactive approach makes a difference and she is a leader with a huge potential to get Albanian tourism going. having Kornelia in so responsible position in the tourism industry is a real sign that Albania is on the way to win over all the difficulties that the country is facing at the moment.
Therefore, I strongly recommend this young and hardworking lady to be awarded as a Tourism Hero.
I am really so impressed and excited at the same time. It is really a great appreciation for my work, and I want to thank you and your team for this.
I hope we will have a great collaboration together.
