The Albanian government in collaboration with second tier banks will pay the outstanding debts of 60 million euro to private energy companies. The new initiative was announced during the parliamentary session by the Prime Minister Edi Rama, according to which, this is the first concrete achievement in the energy sector reformation.
Rama highlighted the fact that the reform in this sector is giving positive signals and has opened the road to the market liberalization, and also eliminates the energy theft.
“This is an intensive reform which is being supported by a close collaboration of the government with second tier banks, in order to pay the 60 million euro outstanding debts. The second tier banks have requested to disburse 30 million euro to pay these debts to the private producers. The domestic production of electric energy must assist in the liberalization of the market,” declared Rama.
