The Mayor of the Municipality of Çorovodë, Mr. Nesim Spahiu, stated in his community address that the bio-products of Skrapar have a very prominent identity that is part of the local and national cultural heritage.

Proudly in attendance was the President of Parliament, Mr. Ilir Meta and the Minister of Justice, Mr. Nasip Naco.

Meta echoed the statements of Spahiu and stated that Skrapar has an extraordinary touristic potential. He believes that bio-products are a perfect combination to the natural beauty of Skrapar. The promotion and sale of these local products is a wonderful opportunity for the local population. The central government hopes to support the farmers in order to increase the production and sales of bio-products.
