Rest of the highway with the Chinese
The greatest economic interest of Montenegro is the continuation of the construction of the highway after finishing the first section of Bar-Boljare and the government is ready to seek a model with China to provide funds for that capital investment, Prime Minister Dusko Markovic announced.
He had a meeting today with the delegation of Sino-CEE Holding and its fund, led by President Jiang Jianquing.
The meeting, as announced by the Government, concluded that there is mutual interest in investing and supporting projects in the areas of transport and energy and that Montenegro offers good opportunities for investments in the fields of tourism and agriculture.
Markovic pointed out that Montenegro’s greatest interest is the continuation of the construction of the highway, right after the completion of the priority section.
“We are ready to seek a model with NR China to provide funds for this capital investment,” the Prime Minister said, reminding that both governments not only see the highway project as a job but also as state projects, and that the additional advantage is the fact that the construction of the highway to Montenegro is one of the priorities of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, too.
It is estimated that, apart from the highway, cooperation is most likely to be realized on projects of valorization of Montenegrin airports and our energy potentials.
Jianquing reminded that NR China has allocated $ 10 billion for investment in the ‘’16+1’’ and “Belt and Road” projects, with the aim of providing additional 50 billion of credit support, and assessed that Montenegro has the potential and resources to attract part of that money.
