The Minister of Tourism and Environment, Blendi Klosi, has reiterated the demand for the cancellation of Type C environmental permits.

In a meeting with stakeholders, Minister Klosi stressed that, in addition to environmental pollution, Type C permits have become 'magnets for abuse' even inside the administrative structure.

Klosi sought cooperation with law enforcement agencies on all environmental pollutants.

Earlier, the same environmental permits sparked clashes between the government and municipalities which have been demanding the decentralization of these permits.

The Ministry of Environment has now proposed to cancel the Type C permit as it causes a burden for more than 5500 businesses.
