Montenegro-Germany cooperation in environment and tourism

“Germany is ready to give Montenegro support and assistance in efforts to further improve the environment”. That was the conclusion after a series of meetings that were held in Berlin between the Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism Pavle Radulovic with representatives of the Bundestag and the ministry.

At a meeting with the Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Protection and Nuclear Safety, Radulovic requested expert assistance, especially for the projects related to the environment and sustainable development.

A ministry delegation led by Radulovic presented the results of the protection of Ulcinj’s “Solana” (Salt Plant), and also discussed the conservation of protected sites such as Tara Canyon, Skadar Lake, and national parks.

There was a high degree of agreement on these issues, with the decision to deepen further cooperation with operational meetings between the two countries’ institutions. Radulovic and Minister Schulz noted with satisfaction that the Government’s efforts so far have been fruitful and that since the opening of Chapter 27, there has been significant progress, among other things, that “Solana” is now protected both locally and internationally.

At a meeting with the Chairman of the Bundestag Tourism Committee Sebastian Mince Maker and the members of the committee, Radulovic presented the results of the tourism industry, which is improving year by year.

The German side is pleased that an increasing number of their tourists are visiting Montenegro, emphasizing their willingness to cooperate in tourism through the opening of new direct flights between the two countries.

The Minister also met with members of the Working Party on the Environment, Alliance 90 / Greens, as well as with President Zilvia Koting-Ul and members of the Committee on the Environment, Nature Conservation and Safety of the Bundestag Nuclear Reactors./ibna
