The Health Tourism Coordination Board of the Chamber of Economy of Montenegro expressed full support to the efforts of the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism and the Ministry of Health for drafting a Health Tourism Development Strategy in Montenegro.

When drafting this document, the members of the Board consider it is necessary to harmonize legislation and allocate responsibilities very clearly, so as to create conditions for stronger and faster development of this industry and contribute to the creation of new jobs. They asked for the representatives of the Coordination Board to be included in the working group for drafting the Strategy.

The Board members adopted the 2018 Work Program, discussed the recently adopted Law on the Chamber of Economy of Montenegro, the project related to drafting the Strategy, improvement of regional cooperation in tourism, and also announced the events, in which our country will be presented as a health destination.  

The meeting was led by the President of the Coordination Board Vasilije Vlatko Stijepović, while in addition to the business community, the CEM Vice-President Ljiljana Filipović, Head of Legal and General Affairs of the CEM Mitar Bajčeta, as well as the Director General for the Development of Tourist Destination and Tourist Infrastructure Ćazim Hodžić took part in the meeting.
