The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Niko Peleshi declares that government will reduce the costs for the fishermen. He made this declaration during a meeting on Saturday with a group of fishermen in Durresi’s reconstructed fishing harbor. During this meeting he also guaranteed the fishermen that this harbor will from now on used only by the fishing boats and no yacht or other vessel.
“The entire strategy drafted by the government for this sector aims to reduce the costs for the fishermen. Of course, the best way to support a specific sector is by increasing its level of competition in the market. Reduction of costs is achieved through reduction of financial costs, but also bureaucratic or administrative costs. The abolition of excise tax on oil for fishermen gave a positive impetus to this sector. Likewise, I would like to guarantee each one of you that this harbor will no longer be used by other vessels than the fishing boats,” said Peleshi addressing to the fishermen.
