PR ServicePljevlja, Montenegro (23 September 2017) -- Prime Minister Duško Marković told miners in Pljevlja today that the Government appreciates their commitment and dedication to achieving the best possible results that directly affect the development of the Montenegrin economy, that the miners are the pillar of energy stability in Montenegro, because the exploitation of coal in Pljevlja is one of the leading economic activities in Montenegro, that the Government is committed to increasing the investment in mining and thus increasing the miners' living standard.

"I take the opportunity to send to the miners the most sincere congratulations with the expression of respect for the mining profession, which is one of the most difficult and demanding professions in our economy., and to say that the Government values your commitment and dedication to achieving the best possible results that directly affect the development of the Montenegrin economy. ... The miners are the pillar of energy stability of our country, and your results also significantly contribute to its industrial development. ... We are committed to increasing investment in mining and increasing the number of employees and their earnings through the improvement of business opportunities. And this will directly affect the working conditions and the standard of living of our miners and their families," the Prime Minister said at the Ceremony on the occasion of the Miner's Day of Montenegro.

The Prime Minister said that Montenegro has significant coal reserves, primarily in the Pljevlja and Berane basins, bauxite reserves in the southwest of the country, and reserves of lead-zinc ores mainly in the regions of Ljubišnje and Bjelasica.

"So, Montenegro has comparative advantages for the further development of this activity, but it must have a sustainable and long-term vision. Only responsible planning guarantees a home-based attitude towards our common goods, which are available to this and generations that comes," the Prime Minister said.

Prime Minister Marković noted that additional efforts should be made to make wise use of the resources we have.
