Prime Minister Duško Marković met earlier today with the delegation of the Old Royal Capital Cetinje, led by Mayor Aleksandar Kašćelan.

It was stated that the good strategic position of Cetinje valued through the strengthening of the overall infrastructure and creation of new jobs will provide a better life for the citizens of the Old Royal Capital.

Congratulating on 13 November - Day of the Old Royal Capital Cetinje, the Prime Minister emphasised the undisputed support of the Government for the development of the municipality, but also pointed to the need to strengthen fiscal discipline at the local level. Both sides agreed that additional efforts should be made to consolidate local finances and to collect taxes and reduce the gray economy, especially in the field of tourism. The number of unemployed citizens of Cetinje has been reduced by almost 400 in 2018.

The meeting also discussed the implementation of capital projects. The 2018 Capital Budget foresaw the amount of EUR 5,541,000 for a total of 32 projects in Cetinje.

Speaking about the budget for the next year, PM Marković pointed out that it will be focused on development with limiting spending to what is really necessary.

Kašćelan and his associates expressed satisfaction with the support they receive through the Law on the Old Royal Capital, which enabled them to invest in the equipment of local companies and thus achieve savings. Additional support, as Prime Minister Marković said, can also be expected through the new Law on Financing of Local Self-Government which is being drafted.

PM Marković concluded that the support and partnership between the Government and the Old Royal Capital remain unquestionable, but that the goal is to turn the possibilities into reality.
