While the UN Albania Resident Coordinator Fiona McClunney emphasized the continuous efforts of United Nations in responding to migration challenges and dynamics – “Being an EU candidate, a signatory of the Global Compact on Migration and the Sustainable Developments Goals, Albania is in a favorable position to further good migration governance”.
