AmCham celebrates U.S. Independence Day

The American Chamber of Commerce in Albania has held its annual celebration of the U.S. Independence Day, marking the 239th anniversary the establishment of the United States, a great nation and one of Albania’s greatest friends.

Hundreds of AmCham members — joined by representatives of the American community in Tirana and U.S. Embassy employees — gathered to remember the most important day in the history of the United States and celebrate this popular holiday in American style in Albania.

The President of AmCham, Mark Crawford expressed his appreciation for the role American expat communities play everywhere in the world and the way they are organized in order to give values even outside America to the Independence Day.

Ambassador Donald Lu welcomed all the participants and reminisced on 4th of July celebrations when he was student in New York. The way the American community comes together on July 4th unites them not only to enjoy New York’s fireworks spectacle, but above all to give this celebration the true meaning of the community.

This year’s celebration in Albania came with all the elements and atmosphere of a real American party with typical American food items and fireworks that created a pleasant festive atmosphere for all those attending the celebration.
