Water surfaces, same tendering procedures as agricultural lands

24. September 2008

The Ministry of Environment has proposed a new bill which considers the water surface of the territory of Albania the same as an agricultural land. In the proposed bill it is stated that the waters in the territory of Albania will be subject to the tendering procedures, according to which the winner will be the temporary “owner” of a certain water area. In the report attached to this bill it is stated that the government pretends to promote tourism in the country by renting out the water surface. According to the Ministry of Environment the rented water surface will be used mainly for the development of aquaculture.
