Membership of the EU and NATO is not directed against Russia or anyone else, but corresponds to the needs of society for enduring peace and stability, a wish to essentially and not only geographically belong to the world's most developed countries and cherish the values of Western civilisation. At the same time cooperation with Moscow and Beijing, especially economic cooperation, is the result of our efforts to develop our state and its infrastructure to make it accessible and attractive for new investment that will create new jobs – Duško Marković, Prime Minister of Montenegro
Montenegro is a good investment destination that is moving in the right direction to utilise its high potential. The challenge is the way and pace at which that potential will be used. There is a lot of room for improvement and we are aware that this is a long-term process requiring the cooperation of all stakeholders. MFIC is ready to contribute as much as possible
The strong progress made by Montenegro since the restoration of independence in building democratic institutions and the modern economic environment – within the framework of EU and Euro-Atlantic integration – now obliges that the government takes on more ambitious goals: the creation of the preconditions for sustainable and dynamic economic growth and increasing employment
The past decade was marked by the strong progress of Montenegro on its path towards the European Union, based on the foreign policy orientation of Montenegro and its commitment to European and Euro-Atlantic integration
The Government of Montenegro has set itself ambitious goals for achieving economic growth, attracting investments and implementing major infrastructure projects in order to advance the standard of living of its citizens. The main challenges on that road include the adapting of public administration, the business environment, the labour market and tax policy
The Montenegrin Government is well aware of the importance of foreign direct investment for the sustainable growth of the economy and has done a lot to improve competitiveness, transparency and business-friendliness. Nevertheless, there is still work to be done and challenges to be overcome.
