The Ministry of Nature Protection has developed a package of draft laws prohibiting free providing of plastic bags from 01.07.2019; thus a special tax will be defined from 01.01.2020. The package can be found in e-draft.am platform, via link https://www.e-draft.am/projects/1524.
According to the preliminary research, this measure will bring about a sharp decrease in plastic bag usage, and their sale will be banned in Armenia in 2022.
On March 5, at 17:00, here will take place a meeting with all stakeholders in the MNP Conference Hall with the objective to discuss the package of draft laws.
Those wishing to participate in the discussion can be registered until 05.03.2019, 13:00 by calling 011-818-559.
