The entry into force of the French Ecotax continues to cause controversy. Earlier this week the French Road Haulage Association announced that the Government is about to postpone the enforcement of the tax and to cancel the initially planned test period in Alsace. The spokesman of the French transport ministry though said that such decision has not been taken yet,although the minister himself understands and shares the concerns of the association.
Did the Road Haulage Association announce the change prematurely? Is the French minister responsible for the introduction of the tax just not willing to commit to a new timetable? Servitir is looking forward to the answers of these questions and will continue to lobby both at a national and international level.
