Andrijevica, Montenegro (8 December 2017) — During his working visit to Andrijevica, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Milutin Simović had a special meeting with the Mayor of the Municipality Srđo Mašović and his associates. On that occasion, they discussed the current development projects, as well as possibilities for using the potential for further development of the municipality through new projects.
The meeting considered extremely positive expectations from the projects of House of Fruit and the new water bottling factory, which were presented earlier today as new and significant investment projects not only for the development of Andrijevica, but also for the wider area of the North of Montenegro. The officials also discussed other current projects that are being implemented in the field of agriculture, the use of hydropower plants for the production of energy by the construction of small hydro-power plants, as well as wood processing. They estimated that the Municipality of Andrijevica is on the right track and that it is necessary to continue developing projects based on the use of natural resources, in order to speed up the growth of the local economy and improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of that region. The importance of encouraging new initiatives that can contribute to the best use of tourism potentials of Andrijevica was also underlined.
DPM Simović congratulated the local government on everything that was achieved in the last period, especially issuing a household relationship that resulted in the financial stability of the municipality, but also creating an entrepreneurial spirit in the municipality as a precondition for opening new jobs.
DPM Simović congratulated the Municipality of Andrijevica on the initiative to start up development projects itself, such as the construction of a small HPP on the city waterworks, significant revenues from which are expected, according to the municipal budget. Summing up the results achieved in Andrijevica in the shrinking agriculture, he said that he is looking forward to a significant number of beneficiaries who took advantage of the support measures of the Ministry of Agriculture and projects that are being implemented with international partners.
Mayor of the Municipality of Andrijevica Srđo Mašović also expressed great satisfaction with the realisation of two new investments in the municipality, which, as he said, give a new perspective for the development and the remainder of young people especially, in the area of Andrijevca. The House of Fruit, as he pointed out, will be the best way to implement and improve the production of raspberries and blueberries, an agricultural activity that has been recognised as a resource for the development of Andrijevica.
The Mayor of Andrijevica assessed that the local government did a lot in the previous period in cooperation with the Government in terms of stimulating and developing projects that bring development and new jobs, based on the use of natural resources, and that activities will continue in that direction even more intensively. Special emphasis was placed on the potential for further development in the fields of agriculture, hydro-power, water, wood processing and tourism. He thanked the Government of Montenegro and the Ministry of Agriculture for support, as well as the Directorate of Public Works.
