The second area is the environment and water management, the improvement and upgrade of systems of water supply networks and all of those have to do with the supply of the citizens with water of good quality. In addition, they have to do and other issues concerning water management that have emerged from the draft river basin management which is now the Region of us. A third group has to do with the biodiversity and habitat restoration. Also issues that have to do with road safety in the provincial network, these are the most key challenges for the immediate future, because invitations are coming out in phases. The projects ready for tender is eur 65 million. euro, but because of the relevant law there are delays”.
