Albania to provide subsidies for citizens scrapping old cars
Such initiatives have long since been implemented in European Union (EU) members.
Given that air pollution levels in Albania remain high, especially in cities such as Tirana, Elbasan, and Fier where the situation is very concerning, the Albanian government hopes the initiative will help improve air quality, the expert said.
This initiative is expected to cost the state 15 million euros ($16.7 million), Dibra explained.
She added that the government was revising the tax on vehicles, noting that vehicles that pollute more will pay more taxes. ■
