Albanian investment and development council project

Albanian Investment & Development Council

Hotel Diplomat’s partner and Chairman Anna Cappelen, provides advice and experience to the Albanian investment and development council.

In May 2016, the Albanian government appointed an Investment Council in collaboration with Swedish business. The Investment and Development council is a substructure of the National Economic Council of Albania, with the participation of a group from Swedish business that will assist the Albanian Government in its reform efforts and to attract new investments to the country. The Council is chaired by the Albanian Prime Minister on behalf of Albanian government and former Prime Minister Göran Persson on behalf of Swedish businesses.

Albania faces some great challenges in order to become an economically and politically fully integrated part of Europe, and to create growth and increased prosperity for the citizens. The council will lead the work towards European standards and will provide advice and experiences.

Mrs Anna Cappelen – Partner and Chairman of Hotel Diplomat, tourism promotion expert.

Mr Fredrik Cappelen – Advisor to private equity and board member of several leading European companies.

Wolfgang Lehmann

February 9 – March 31

The exhibition, Landscape and Symmetry, displays the work created by Wolfgang Lehmann 2012-2017, and shows photographs from the artist’s fascination for landscapes, cities and his obsession with overlays. Behind every image is usually multi exposures and Wolfgang himself refers to his work as process-photography, as the result of his photographs is often a painterly image.

Wolfgang Lehmann, born in Germany 1967 and currently living in Stockholm since 2006, is a lens-based artist who creates video, installation and photography. Wolfgang’s work has been exhibited at several great and meaningful museums and events/festivals such as; Kuryokhin Center in St. Petersburg, Museo Lazaro Galdiano in Madrid, MoCa Museum of contemporary art in Shanghai, New York film festival and many others.
