Write Up of Proposal to Ministry of Finance for their Budget 2023 Formulation
In November 2021, government via Ministry of Finance has announced a few incentives for the buyers of EV as well as the EV manufacturers. The numbers of EV on the road has increased to 1,400-level since the announcements, compared to 400-level in Dec 2021. This shows that government policies will spur the adoption of EV and ZEVA will continuously work alongside the government to provide feedback and research data for their policy making initiatives.
Therefore, on 2 August 2022, ZEVA has gathered all members to formalize the association’s view on the immediate policies required to be in place so that the EV adoption shall strengthen. These views shall be submitted to Ministry of Finance for their Budget 2023 formulation. A set of proposal covering all angles of EV supply chain was drafted in this workshop with a special focus of incentives crafted for the Charging Point Operators (CPOs). Among other points of the supply chain discussed are bus operator, company fleet, taxi and car sharing, EV manufacturers and dealers, EV buyers, financial institution, school and universities bus and public parking or space land owner.
ZEVA would also like to thank our members, PEKEMA, for allowing the association to use their facilities and hosting lunch for the workshop.
