When the President of Albania wants to deliver a message in Chicago, he does it through the America - Israel Chamber of Commerce Chicago!
 

Last week the Honorable Bujar Nishani, President of the Republic of Albania visited Chicago. We were happy when the Advisor to the President of called us and asked us to host a meeting between the President and the AICC leadership.

It's phone calls like that that tell us we are doing a good job and are being recognized as a leading business organization in Chicago.

The president emphasized Albanians' affinity for the principles of respect, coexistence and shared common values despite a nearly half-century dictatorial regime that sought to vilify the United States, Israel and the Western world. Ultimately, the regime was toppled in 1991. Click here for complete coverage article in the JUF News.

Board members of the America - Israel Chamber of commerce Chicago were joined by Board members of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, the Albanian - American Association of Businessmen, Intellectuals and Activists, and the Albanian - American Womens Association of Greater Chicago for this historic meeting.


We are grateful to Steven Dishler and the Jewish Federation for hosting us and facilitating participation from JUF leadership. Welcoming remarks were given by David Golder, Chairman of JUF's Government Affairs Committee, and Jane Fischer, AICC President. President Nishani was introduced by our Advisory Board member (and past President) Dan Shure, who also serves Honrary Ambassador, Albanian - American Center for Information and Cooperation.

Steven Dishler (JUF) and Michael Schmitt (AICC) closed the program with the customary exchange of diplomatic gifts.
