First session of National Investment Commission

    Podgorica, Montenegro (19 May 2015) — Today’s first sitting of the National Investment Commission, chaired by Prime Minister Milo Đukanovic, approved the Rules of Procedure, methodology for the selection and prioritisation of infrastructure projects, and information on the planned activities which are necessary to be undertaken in order to include a certain project in the unified list of priority infrastructure projects.

    The European Commission recognised the National Investment Commission as one of the most important bodies at the national level, through which the Western Balkan Investment Framework and other EU funds will be used in the best way for the implementation of strategic infrastructural projects.

    On the basis of unique national lists of priority infrastructure projects, the commission will, in line with the priorities defined at the state level, decide which projects will be financially supported by the Western Balkan Investment Framework, as the main mechanism through which the funds of the EU financial support for the Western Balkan for the period 2014 – 2020 will be implemented.
