Korça, Albania. In September 2017, the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) supported the organisation of the fourth edition of the “KoKo Fest” comedy festival in Korça, Albania.

The Director of the Arts and Culture Centre, Zamira Kita, thanked TAP for its support and for promoting culture in the Korça region. She noted: “In addition to the support for the organisation of the fourth edition of this festival, TAP has become a partner of culture in Albania. TAP’s investment for the construction of a museum celebrating the well-known Korça photographer, Gjon Mili, is noteworthy. This museum is vital to the promotion of culture in Korça.”

TAP Country Manager, Shkëlqim Bozgo, said: “TAP is supporting a series of projects that improve the lives of communities crossed by the pipeline. We believe that culture is a vital element in improving the lives of residents and, for this reason, we were happy to support a series of cultural activities and projects.” 

Awards for actors, directors, and the best play were handed during the last night of the festival. The awards were presented by the Minister of Culture, Mirela Kumbaro, Korça Mayor, Sotiraq Filo, and TAP Country Manager for Albania, Shkëlqim Bozgo.
