The Istanbul Stock Exchange, as currently the largest shareholder of the Montenegro Stock Exchange with the right to manage it, recognized the potential for a stronger development of the capital market and wants to help Montenegro on that path, announced the Assistant Director General of the Istanbul Stock Exchange, Güzhan Gülay.
“In that direction, we are ready to, through the transfer of knowledge, experience and technology, help the Montenegro Stock Exchange and the development of the Montenegrin capital market,” said Gülay at a meeting with the Governor of the Central Bank (CBCG), Radoj Žugić.
The interlocutors, as announced by the CBCG, agreed in the assessment that Turkey and Montenegro have very good overall relations and economic cooperation that is on the rise.
