Podgorica, Montenegro (13 May 2019) -- Government of Montenegro wants to, in a short time, and in a sustainable manner, make the best use of the development potential, primarily in the north of the country, in order to provide better living standards for citizens, Prime Minister Duško Marković noted at today's meeting with the delegation of the Austrian company Doppelmayr, headed by the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group CEO Michael Doppelmayr.

"We have invested significant resources in the development of the overall infrastructure - transport, energy, digital... in order to create favourable conditions for business and job creation. The economy has grown at an average rate of 4.9 %, and in just two years we have increased the number of employees by over 17,000," Prime Minister Marković stated.

He stressed the country's strong commitment to the construction of ski resorts and highlighted the project of a ski centre that is being built on the territory of the five municipalities - Kolašin, Mojkovac, Bijelo Polje, Rožaje and Berane. Recalling that the procedure for building infrastructure in the area is in progress, the Prime Minister said he is hopeful that the works will be completed by 2020.

Both sides expressed satisfaction with the collaboration with Doppelmayr and the interest for long-term cooperation, given the reputation of the company and the fact that such investors provide both money and infrastructure, as well as knowledge and European standards of business.

Mr Doppelmayr said that the future of skiing is unquestionable, as well as the trend in the world to build ski resorts that can be used in the summer and in that way absolutely use the capacity of the risort. Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group has built and installed 15,000 cable cars on six continents. They have representative offices or agencies in 40 countries and close to 3,000 employees.
