By the end of May, possibly June, the entire Port of Bar should be state-owned, said Prime Minister Dritan Abazović during the presentation of the government’s results over the past year.
As he stated, the goal of the state is to complete that company.
Luka Bar had outstanding results. This is the biggest development opportunity when it comes to Montenegro, because that company needs to generate the construction of a complete highway to Serbia and the modernization of the railway. I hope that by the end of May, possibly June, we will manage to have a situation where the entire Port of Bar will be owned by Montenegro – said Abazović.
He also visited that Elektroprivreda took over Željezara, that the state manages the ferry line Kamenari – Lepetane, the City Port of Budva was returned to the Municipality, and the Pine pier to the Tivat local self-government.
The Kotor-Lovćen cable car is also being built and it will be the most prestigious tourism facility ever built when it comes to advertising Montenegro – Abazović pointed out when talking about the projects that marked the year behind us. The prime minister also pointed to the excellent economic results, which are “spectacular and beyond all expectations”.
The government worked in sixth gear for 365 days. The achieved data and results destroy all the talk about the bankruptcy of Montenegro – he stated. According to his words, never in the history of Montenegro has the gross domestic product exceeded five billion.
Last year, the year of the crisis, Montenegro ended with EUR 5.8 billion. In the last quarter of last year, the unemployment rate was only 13%. Salaries have come close to some countries of the European Union, although not the richest, and I will emphasize that we have by far the highest average salary in the region – said Abazović.
