The first guest was Mrs. Vjollca Simoni, Head of European Integration and Coordination unit, who gives her contribution in this institution since 2006. Mrs Simoni is in charge of following and making sure that INSTAT obligations towards EU Integration are done properly. The other guest was Mr. Etugert Llazi, head of Quarterly National Account unit.
