Podgorica, Montenegro (28 August 2019) -- Montenegro and Germany have established dynamic bilateral relations at all levels, and additional efforts should be made to strengthen economic cooperation through stronger investment from the German business people, said Prime Minister Duško Marković at the meeting with Deputy Chair of the CDU/CSU Parliamentary Group in the German Bundestag Katja Leikert.

Prime Minister Marković spoke about the country's economic recovery, which is reflected in high growth rates, deficit reduction and excellent budget filling.

"The results are above expectations. The budget is stable, public revenues are higher than planned, and we entered into a fierce showdown with the grey economy that has yielded results," he underlined.

The Prime Minister emphasised the excellent tourist season, as well as the results and potential in the fields of agriculture and energy. Montenegro, he added, has turned to renewable energy, which is an area that offers great opportunities for the German investors. The Government has placed particular emphasis on the strengthening of the overall infrastructure, as a key prerequisite for dynamic and sustainable development.

The meeting also addressed progress in the European integration process, freedom of the media, and successes in the fight against corruption and organised crime.

"We have demonstrated strength and sustainability of institutional action in combating organised crime and corruption. We have achieved great results in these areas," the Prime Minister of Montenegro underscored.

PM Markovic thanked Ms Leikert for the support of the German Government and the federal police, as well as the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, which has continuously assisted Montenegro in strengthening its institutional potential, and which organised the visit of Ms Leikert to Montenegro.
