Opinion piece by PM Duško Marković on ocassion of Government's 100 days

Opinion piece by PM Duško Marković on ocassion of Government One hundred days of the Government is a small jubilee. To date, the 41st Government of Montenegro “has spent” only about 7% of the time of its four-year term of office! On the one hand, it is not enough to be able to evaluate the effects of the strategic policies, but on the other hand, each working day the Cabinet is going through a sort of test and evaluation by national and international public...

Blog: Census - With European standards against “established distrust”

To understand the preferences of our people is the name of the game. Census was born out of this assessment need. Designing fair rules or even a suitable budget would be impossible without it in the long run...

Mr. President of the Parliament,
Distinguished Chair,
Honourable Members of Parliament,

A little more than a year ago in this high chamber I presented strategic goals and priority tasks of the Government whose mandate has been cut short due to the early Parliamentary election of 29 March. Strategic goals are unchanged and they remain so both for the new and for future governments full integration in the EU and NATO. Regrettably, the circumstances have changed. Taking over at the helm of the Government on 28 February 2008 I said here I did so in the most favourable political and economic environment for the young Montenegrin State
