The working group twice reviewed the implementation of these instructions in 2014 and 2015, and the resulting documents noted the flaws in the implementation of these instructions.
The group’s previous meetings led to a report that was submitted to the President.
The analysis made during the preparation of the meeting showed that substantial work was done to rectify the situation. As of now, 24 out of 28 instructions have been taken off the watch list.
During the meeting the participants reviewed progress made on introducing amendments to the law pertaining to the use, protection and safety of forests, measures related to forest management and the registration of forest plots in the state cadastre.
The minutes of the meeting will be forwarded to the relevant ministries and departments.
