The President of the Montenegrin Chamber Vlastimir Golubović and the Slovenian Ambassador Gregor Presker discussed the possibilities of boosting economic cooperation between the two countries.

- Slovenia's development experiences can be used in every sector of our economy. In particular, we can apply your knowledge to the development of mountain tourism, for which we have great potentials. In our country there are plenty of opportunities for Slovenian investments in renewable energy, because the submarine cable to Italy provides an access to markets, which have not been available so far- said Golubović.

Since the restoration of Montenegrin independence, Slovenia invested over EUR 350 million. So far, more than 150 companies from Slovenia have been doing business in Montenegro.

- I hope that the Slovenian companies will recognize investment opportunities in Montenegro. Your country has huge potentials, especially bearing in mind that during the tourist season your country is turned into the market of about 2.5 million people. This is an exceptional opportunity for strengthening agriculture, where we can establish stronger cooperation. Slovenian companies are also interested in cooperation in the field of energy sector, says the Ambassador.

During last year, 22.000 tourists from Slovenia visited Montenegro and 11,000 Montenegrin citizens stayed in Slovenia.

They emphasized the activity of the Slovenian Business Club in connecting companies from Slovenia and Montenegro. The meeting of businessmen and a panel discussion will be organized by the end of the year thus contributing to strengthening business ties. The Chamber supports the activities of the Slovenian Business Club and its representatives will participate in this event, it was announced at the meeting.
