Economic instruments, environmental expenditures and investments for greening the economy

Compared with the situation reviewed in 2010, no new environmentally related economic instruments have been introduced. The main legal base for the application of the polluter-pays and user-pays principles has remained the 1996 Law on Environmental Protection.
