Next Contacts of Karousos and Demitriadis in Brussels for “Fit for 55” HOME • INSIDER • CYPRUS • Contacts of Karoussos and Demitriadis in Brussels for “Fit for 55”
& nbsp & nbspInsider/ΓΤΠ & nbsp; & nbsp;
The Minister of Transport, Communications and Works, Giannis Karousos and the Deputy Minister of Shipping, Vassilis Dimitriadis, accompanied by officials, have been in Brussels since yesterday, where they are holding a series of contacts with MEPs and European Commission officials. The subject of the meetings is the new EU legislative package under discussion “Fit for 55”, which aims to make the EU the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.
On the sidelines of their contacts , Messrs. Karousos and Dimitriadis made statements regarding the content of their meetings.
In his statements, the Minister of Transport stated that “the visit to Brussels was planned to have a series of contacts with officials of the European Parliament and representatives of the European Commission on issues related to the legislative package” Fit for 55 “and the promotion of specific initiatives and concerns of Cyprus “. In particular, the Minister said, “we had the opportunity to launch our own initiatives to the Council, such as the 'Self-allowance mechanism' proposal, which aims to motivate airlines to use more biofuels in a shorter period of time and for a lower cost “.
Referring to the legislative proposals of the “Fit for 55” package, Mr. & nbsp; Karousos explained that Cyprus conducted an analysis of how these proposals will affect the aviation, the economy of our country and the other EU Member States, the which is now also used as a reference point. After pointing out that Cyprus may “face a competitive disadvantage, since the cost of a flight to Cyprus by 2035 will be much higher compared to third countries, such as Egypt and Turkey”, Mr. & nbsp; Karousos explained that ” The measures, which will take effect in 2025, are estimated to cost airlines $ 220 million a year, while in 2030 the cost will rise to $ 520 million. “It is estimated that in 2035 the total cost will reach 821 million dollars”, added Mr. & nbsp; Karousos. Therefore, the Minister of Transport stated that “from 2035, the airlines that will operate flights to Cyprus will have a cost of about 800 million euros which will be transferred to passengers, with negative consequences for tourism and the economy. ». “Based on calculations,” he added, “Cyprus with these data and in case our concerns are not taken into account, it is estimated that it will lose about 15-20% of tourism and there will be a reduction of 1.7% in the country's GDP.” per year, while by the time the goal of climate neutrality is reached in 2050, the airlines will bear the cost of 18 billion dollars “.
Concluding, the Minister of Transport noted that “contacts will continue in the European Parliament but also at ministerial level, if important sectors of the economy are affected, such as tourism.”
The Undersecretary of Shipping, in his own statements, stated that the Undersecretary of Shipping proceeded to evaluate the effects of the implementation of the “Fit for 55” package in maritime transport. Noting that “shipping is the second most important sector for the Cypriot economy after tourism, Mr. Dimitriadis stressed that,” although we understand that shipping must contribute to reducing emissions and the EU effort to combat of climate change “, however” we estimated through the analysis that the effects of the proposals, as presented by the European Commission, will be disproportionate for Cyprus “. He added: “As you know, all trade inputs to Cyprus – all goods – are transported by sea, and it is estimated that the cost of maritime transport will increase by around 25% by 2032. Therefore, in contacts with both MEP coordinators “As rapporteurs of the relevant legislative proposals, as well as with representatives of the European Commission, we highlight the particularities of Cyprus as an island state and submit suggestions for their improvement, especially regarding the issue of the distribution of pollutants”, he pointed out.
In this context, Mr. & nbsp; Demitriadis explained that in the shipping sector the cost of distribution of emissions trading can be “calculated in a way that will allow us to limit any negative effects that appear to occur.” At the same time, he emphasized that the responsibility also to the commercial manager who in several cases decides on the purchase of fuel and the mode of operation of the ship “. “We also call for a separate fund for shipping, so that maritime transport revenues can be used to fund research projects aimed at finding and selling alternative fuels of non-fossil origin to the shipping industry, which will lead to the carbonization of the sector “, said Mr. & nbsp; Dimitriadis to point out that the European Parliament seems to recognize this aspect.
