“What the Albanians think of the Greeks” – by Aggelos Athanasopoulos
“One of the most concerning research findings is that the most dynamic sectors of the Albanian society, like those of the highest level of education, the younger age groups or people of the highest income upper class, see Greece rather cautiously. (…) the majority of the Albanian population is positively towards Greece with 61% but distinctions within this percentage point are significant” (…) The authors of the report are warning over a possible danger that “the positive image as well as Greece’s resonance could slowly wane in Albania in the future, if there are no corrective actions and equivalent remedies or if the strategy and the ways of approaching the Albanian society and policies are not re-examined”.
