After his working visit to the construction site of the Bar – Boljare motoray, Prime Minister Duško Marković met with the leadership of the CRBC company.

PM Marković and General Manager of the CRBC Hei Shiqiang pointed out that the works on the construction of the motorway are being carried very well thanks to the efforts made by the both sides, the Government of Montenegro as an investor and the CRBC company as a constructing company. The Government of Montenegro and the CRBC have shown the mutual understanding for the goals set out for the construction of the motorway, the two officials agreed. 

General manager Shiqiang informed PM Marković that 2 600 workers and 700 construction machines are engaged at this moment throughout the whole route, 1 100 workers and 180 constructing machines more comparing to the same period last year. In the coming period the company will engage 400 workers and 50 constructing machines more, Mr Shiqiang added.

PM Marković noted the great progress made so far, adding that the construction site of the highway is a positive example of achieving good results once there is a close cooperation and mutual understanding of the general goal. 

“The motorway construction is the second important project in the modern history of Montenegro. Only the independence restauration was more important project than this. Therefore, everyone has to do their best. I am proud of what I see and I think that the citizens can also be proud once they see the same,” PM Marković emphasised. 

PM Marković noted that the economy growth of 4% in the first six months is in line with the progress made on the construction of the motorway. 

Chinese Ambassador to Montenegro Cui Zhiwei stressed that relations between Montenegro and China are at the highest level in history, adding that the motorway project significantly contributed to cherishing good relations between the two countries. The Government of the People’s Republic of China is considering this project as one of the most important ones in this region, Ambassador Zhiwei pointed out. 

Having in mind the successful and qualitative construction of the priority route, PM Marković particularly emphasised the need for creating preconditions for the construction of the route Tomaševo – Andrijevica.
