This year the beach bars with special permission of the National Council of the Territory
Under the leadership of the Minister of Tourism and Environment Mirela Kumbaro, the Tourism Task Force has gathered, following the work that has started since October for the preparations for the season.
Kumbaro emphasized the cooperation of all state instances for the progress of the season, announcing the launch of a final action with the help of the army in the last ten days of May.
"We have the most difficult battle this season with the waste, but we are on the right track thanks to the coordination and work of the coastal municipalities. As you know, four coastal municipalities will be assisted by an additional operator through the National Coast Agency. Also on May 20-30, we will engage the army forces on the ground to strengthen the work for clearing the territory. Although this year the waste situation is much better and the coastal territories have been cleared and the season has begun, we are aware that every unpleasant episode in the territory costs us more than we think. Any inaccuracy of our employees translates into damage to the image of Albania. "Therefore, we should avoid any such behavior," said Kumbaro.
The Minister also announced that the temporary service structures, otherwise called as "beach bar" have passed under the filter of the Territorial Development Agency and the permits for them have been published.
"In terms of temporary service structures, this year the maximum has been done by the National Council of the Territory, which has approved all beach bar permits in coordination with the Agency for Territorial Development, the National Inspectorate of Territorial Defense and municipalities, publishing them online as well. This is the first time this has happened. On the other hand, for the management of beach stations by private entities we had 540 qualified applications, but 24 turn out not to have paid tax obligations. Because of this, as we announced in January, the contract will not be signed. "Everyone has the obligation to have a coast guard and there will be controls for this", said Kumbaro.
“Bashkive u është kërkuar të përgatisin planet për menaxhimin e zhurmave që përkthehen në ndalim të punimeve në territor dhe ndalim i zhurmave të larta, duke i dhënë prioritet qetësisë së pushuesve si një angazhim i kryeministrit që në nisje të mandatit për të pasur prioritet turizmin dhe mjedisin. Prandaj edhe shumë vepra infrastrukturore i shërbejnë turizmit. Janë të rëndësishme kantieret e ndërtimit për zhvillimin e zonave, por përgjatë muajve të verës do t’u japim prioritet pushuesve”, njoftoi më tej Mirela Kumbaro.
Referuar të dhënave që vijnë nga turoperatorët, por edhe statistikave të vizitorëve të huaj gjatë muajve të parë të këtij viti, ministrja e Turizmit Mirela Kumbaro u shpreh se pritet një fluks turistësh prandaj kërkoi vëmendje maksimale nga të gjithë.
