It functions as a real institution with proper rules and procedures in place that would be the envy of many institutions. AmCham is also a significant force – a union of 200 more businesses with combined annual revenue of $5 Billion. AmCham is also a global network of 115 branches in more than 100 countries. I see my mission at working hard to making AmCham more effective and more influential by creating more markets for its members and building a more friendly business environment in Albania.’
