The government has decided to reduce the Value Added Tax (VAT) for gas from 18 to 5 percent, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said.
As of February, the realization of the Negotino-Bitola gas pipeline, through Prilep, is 36 percent.
Throughout the year, construction and machine works continue, as well as optics work and cathodic protection of the linear part of this section, after which, in September, the construction of all stages of the block stations will begin, which will, in practice, be in its final stages in this stage..
“We are already analyzing the possibilities for subsidies or cheap loans for adapting internal installations and equipment for access and selection for cheaper environmentally friendly energy sources,” said Zaev.
Regarding the Negotino-Stip gas pipeline, Minister of Transport and Communications Goran Sugareski said that he expects the whole project to be finished next month.
