The Deputy Prime Minister presented very good growth indicators of the Montenegrin economy in the past three years, and the fact that Montenegro is among the countries of Europe that achieve the highest GDP growth, and among the fastest growing economies of the Western Balkans and Southeast Europe. 

DPM Simović informed the participants about the projects we are implementing in the field of transport infrastructure, which connect us better with the region and key European markets, as well as the leading project in this area – the motorway from Bar to the border with Serbia. "By placing a submarine power cable to Italy and building new energy sources, we become an energy hub in Southeast Europe," Simović said.

The Deputy Prime Minister invited Austrian importers and food companies to pay attention to Montenegrin organic products and establish cooperation with our producers and sellers, noting that the high-quality products from Montenegro will definitely find their place in the Austrian market.

Speaking about Montenegro's strategic goals, DPM Simović said that full membership in the EU is the next state goal that we want to achieve. "We believe that we will be the first next member of this most advanced club of developed countries. Montenegro is an open country, ready to cooperate with all countries of the world, especially when it comes to projects that have economic justification and bring benefits to our citizens," Simović emphasised.
