In Montenegro, a first working group meeting has been held. The roles and responsibilities of the work group members have been allocated, in order to a) provide a review of national legislation and current policy (including taxation) related to fuel economy issues; b) identify key stakeholders and potential barriers to implement fuel economy policy; c) analyse the relevant EU Directives that set vehicle emission standards; and d) set up a roadmap for transposition of these EU Directives to national legislation.
Georgia has completed a baseline (2008-2012), and a white paper on taxation has been submitted to government. The white paper stresses the need for taxation reform in order to improve the fuel economy of the automotive fleet. Analysis of the Georgian car fleet (both imported new and used vehicles) from 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012 using the GFEI Fuel Economy Policies Impact Tool (FEPIT) has been carried out and a list of actions was produced that will inform the development of a national car fuel economy improvement plan in Georgia.
