Dozens of public services scheduled for concessions

20. January 2015

The Albanian government is planning to award dozens of concessions for public services in a bid to improve the quality and efficiency of current services and reduce costs to the state budget.

Economy Minister Arben Ahmetaj says, state institutions have already identified some 65 public-private partnership projects under which the state budget would benefit by 375 billion ALL (2.6 billion Euros).
The public-private partnerships include services in the agriculture, health, real estate registration, food safety, road maintenance and operation, tourism and e-taxation.
„I call on Albanian and foreign enterprises to submit their concrete proposals on public-private partnerships, “ said Ahmetaj this week.

The key concessions in the transport sector include the Durres-Kukes highway linking Albania to Kosovo, which is set to become the country’s first toll road. Government also plans concessions for the food safety and the veterinary service in the agriculture sector and basic check-ups and administration of hospital waste in the health service. Government is also planning e-taxation on properties.
