The Meeting will be opened by Ferdinand Xhaferri, Minister of Tourism, Culture, Youth and Sports, Gülden Türköz-Cosslett, UN Resident Coordinator, and Manuel Montobbio, Ambassador of Spain to Albania.

Engelbert Ruoss, Director UNESCO Venice, will be joined by distinguished list of personages representing UNESCO Paris, the International Council of Museums (ICOM), the German Historical Museum in Berlin, and the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology in Milan at this important meeting.
