Podgorica, Montenegro (5 June 2019) -- "For the first five months of 2019, EUR 56 million more was collected compared to the same period last year and over EUR 21 million more than planned," Prime Minister Duško Marković pointed out at the meeting with heads of the Public Revenues Administration, Customs Administration and the Administration for Inspection Affairs.

"This is an excellent result, but we have to continue and intensify our activities. The inspection services' activity on the ground is visible, as well as their commitment to the national interest. We have to charge each euro of the public money in order to provide better standards to citizens and create more jobs," PM Marković stated.

Heads of the three administrations, Miomir Mugoša, Vladan Joković and Alija Košuta, spoke about this year's positive results and the activities on reducing grey economy in different areas. It terms of combating the grey economy and informal work, the meeting praised the coordination of inspections with other state authorities, especially the Prosecutor's Office and the police, also highlighting the results in the reduction of the tax debt through rescheduling, which resulted in the collection of about EUR 50 million up to now.

The meeting especially emphasised the significance of the planned introduction of electronic fiscalisation and new excise stamps, which, together with the reforms being implementing in tax and customs services, will provide modern and efficient system with many opportunities to reduce abuse and better state debt collection.

Intensive activities of the competent state authorities are planned during the tourist season, where improvement is also expected in comparison to previous years.
