The merging of many existing institutions in Albania as part of the formation of the new government will be accompanied by thousands of job cuts in public administration.
So, the preliminary document of the new government for the merging of several ministries and institutions, shows that 4952 jobs may be cut in the public administration.
Many of these jobs will belong to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, which will function as a special department within the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure.
Meanwhile, nothing is yet known about the fate of the 3042 jobs in the Ministry of Social Welfare and Youth, because this ministry will no longer exist. Another ministry which will become a department within the ministry of Foreign Affairs is the ministry of Integration.
At the meantime, the ministry of Economy will be part of the ministry of Finance. This will lead to 588 job cuts.
Even the ministry of Urban Development will no longer exist, leading to 535 job cuts. /balkaneu.com/
