Here are the categories that benefit from a salary increase from July 1, 2024 and how much the salary increase will be for the administration

Here are the categories that benefit from a salary increase from July 1, 2024

Public administration employees will benefit from a salary increase, starting from July 1, 2024. And while the average gross monthly salary in the state sector for the last quarter of 2023 was recorded at 87,864 ALL, the government's intention is that with this increase, the salary average in the country reaches 900 euros per month. But what are the categories that will benefit from a change in salary this year? The health sector will have new salaries. Thus further salary increases will benefit general practitioners, nurses and other health workers. Also, there will be growth in the education sector, where teachers in pre-university education will mainly benefit. A salary increase is also provided for law enforcement and defense forces, as well as employees at the executive levels in the central administration. This year, the reform will also be extended to local government employees, whose salaries are at low levels in relation to central institutions. Regarding the amount of the supplement, in the 2024 budget, for nearly 36 thousand educational employees of the Pre-University Educational System, a salary increase of 23-36% of the gross salary is foreseen. About 18,858 employees of the Health System benefit from an increase of 26-34% of the gross salary; About 22,500 employees of the Grada system are expected to benefit from an average salary increase of 30% for the year 2024. In total, the annual effect for the financing of the salary reform is calculated at nearly 40 billion ALL, or 400 million Euros. The salary reform launched two years ago aims to increase competition in the labor market, also encouraging salary increases in the private sector.

Electronic payments

On the other hand, the Council of Ministers passed yesterday the decision on the pilot project for the use of fast electronic payments. This initiative, which will be implemented initially in three cities, aims to increase competition and innovation in the financial sector, offering a fair and fast distribution of financial services and products to citizens. According to the Minister of State for Entrepreneurship and Business Climate, Delina Ibrahimaj, the selection of citizens who will be involved in this project will be done transparently and randomly, ensuring fair representation of different groups based on age and gender. In the decision, it is determined that the total number of beneficiaries who will be included in this pilot project is 300, where each of them will be given a monetary value of 10,000 lek per month intended for personal expenses. Geographically, the implementation of the project will extend to three municipalities, starting with Tirana, where it will be applied to Administrative Unit No. 5, as well as to the Municipality of Dibra and Permet. "The selection of beneficiaries to be included in this pilot project will be carried out in a random and transparent manner, and will be such as to guarantee a fair age composition that includes beneficiaries from the age groups 18-30 years, 30-40 years respectively , 40-50 years old, 50-60 years old as well as 60-70 years old and their gender, who live within a close geographical space within the territory of the municipality of Tirana, Dibër and Përmet", it is clarified in the decision of the Minister of State for Entrepreneurship and Climate of Business that was passed today at the meeting of the Council of Ministers.

The monetary value determined for each citizen who will be part of this pilot project will be disbursed in the form of a bank transfer, within the 10th of each month, in the period from May to August 2024.

beneficiaries

Beneficiaries must sign the declaration of consent to participate in the pilot project under the specified conditions. The beneficiary uses the value transferred only through applications that enable fast payments, selected by him, based on the list made available by the State Agency for Support of Startups and Facilitators. The retail trade entities that will be part of this project will be selected in fair proportion to the geographical proximity of the location of the beneficiaries within the territory of the municipality of Tirana, Dibër and Përmet. The execution and confirmation of the payment by the selected citizens will be done in real time through the electronic wallet offered by electronic money institutions and other financial institutions and will be realized through the use of the QR code of the fiscalized invoice according to a technical procedure. Each invoice generated by the system is accompanied only by a QR code of the fiscalized invoice and contains information on the bank accounts of the seller, as well as the details of the invoice. Through a banking application selected by the buyer, the QR code is scanned and the invoice and account details of the seller are displayed in the application. In any case, the buyer will also be shown the exact value that it costs to complete this transaction. By selecting one of the business accounts, the buyer confirms the payment using the corresponding option. After making the payment, through the banking channels of interaction, the payment confirmation will come from the receiving bank. Upon receiving the confirmation from the host bank, e-albania informs the electronic tax system. The tax system considers this invoice completed, and does not allow another payment to be made for this invoice, in order to avoid technical errors. The fund made available for the implementation of this project is in the amount of 12,400,000 ALL.

Startup promotion and involvement

Through this decision, it will be possible to encourage and include startups in the financial sector, where the main goal is to reduce the cost of digital transactions for citizens and businesses. The increase in benefits for customers will be ensured, making it possible to promote new services, reduce the costs of use, and improve the experience in using financial services. It will also make it possible to promote competition by increasing the number of actors in the financial field, while it will also ensure increased access to financial services to promote the use of innovative products by non-accessible groups. Another important objective is to increase innovation in the financial sector by facilitating alternative ways of interacting with applications and new payment modules in the Albanian market.
