Current Issues

Focus: The EU Parliament election impact on the Western Balkans and Serbia in particular

The Die is Cast, But the Answer is a Haze

No one is at ease with the outcome of May’s European Parliament elections. It seems obvious that existing political structures are to be dissolved and new political alliances forged, yet the extent to which the outcome will change how the EU functions is unclear, as is whether the Western Balkan enlargement process will remain firmly on the agenda

Christoph Schoen, President of the Montenegrin foreign Investors Council, MFIC

A True Partner for Reforms

We will continue to support the Government of Montenegro during the reform process, as we strongly believe that we will achieve much more if the public and private sectors work together. Among the most important tasks in the coming period are combatting corruption, improving the consistency and efficiency of the judicial system and continuously fighting against the grey economy

Milutin Simović, Deputy Prime Minister Responsible for Economic Policy and the Financial System; Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development

Providing Foundations for Long-term Stable Growth

Sustainable and inclusive economic growth, which will contribute to reducing the development gap of the country compared to the EU average, and to increasing the quality of life of all citizens, is a strategic development goal of Montenegro. That's why we'll strengthen the country's macroeconomic stability and work to eliminate the key obstacles to improving competitiveness

Suzana Pribilović, Montenegrin Minister of Public Administration

Encouraging Reform Results

The results achieved in public administration reform encourage us and confirm that we are on the right track, but also oblige us to work even more dynamically to create a more efficient administration that will provide proper service to citizens and the economy. This is not an easy process, but for us there is no higher priority than increasing our citizens' quality of life

Business Women Invest in Knowledge

I belong to generation “X”. I always had a lot of belief in books, but I also, luckily, had an even greater need to check out everything in practise. Thus, this generation had a unique and, hopefully, never to be repeated “chance” to find – in the midst of the greatest inflation in world history and an environment at war – a decent job and to work “in their vocation”. During times when real values were devalued, I realised it was best to invest in knowledge

Can – Packaging as the Most Important Environmental Ally

This “green planet” has been our home for millions of years. It is a home to which civilisation has not paid enough attention, which is why one of the main efforts of modern society is directed towards restoring the planet to its authentic condition – without waste and pollution

International Cooperation on Environmental Protection

By its nature, the environment extends beyond political and legal frameworks, and other boundaries created by man. International and cross-border cooperation between countries is vital if we want to address challenges that impact on all of us. These challenges vary from droughts and floods, to pollution and threats to the richness of biodiversity

Natural Environment & Security

The natural environment is exposed to evident changes in terms of degradation in many segments, due to the ever more dynamic development of society, production and consumption. These changes are often also felt beyond the site where pollution occurs, even at great distances, which gives this problem an international character

The Only Constant in Life is Change

Having served in a local public administration, then moving on to the work in the central Government, and currently being in a position to guide and organise the work in Serbia for some of the world’s most successful companies and funds (and global success stories!) in the area of environmental protection, one of the key things I’ve learnt is that the only everlasting constant in business and life in general is – change

Filip Radović, Director of the Environmental Protection Agency

Circular Economy

The Circular economy represents an approach that transforms the function of an economy's resources. Apart from natural resources, in accordance with circular economy principles, the entirety of generated waste becomes a newly created resource. Waste from one factory becomes the raw material for some other manufacturing process
