Gentile Bellini’s link with Albania in the Fifteenth Century and George Kastrioti Skanderbeg

Similarly, in 2015, I made another great finding when I was in Brussels, the capital of the EU and the arts world with renowned names such as Rene Magritte and extraordinary architects like Victor Horta, at the Centre for Fine Arts (BOZAR).

It strikes me that there is more than just hypocrisy in this comparison, rightly deemed “shameful” by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“Abenomics” for Albania to Return to Six Per Cent GDP Growth

Albania is not Japan, but like in Japan the solution to economic problems is for the economists and politicians to use reason and be a bit daring. What is missing from the economic program of the leftist government is a new vision for exploiting official and not monetary and financial methods to achieve higher economic growth levels.
