According to projections of the World Bank (WB) this year Montenegrin economy will grow by 3.3 percent, due to the continued construction of the highway, a series of private investments and investments in the energy sector.

The WB senior economist for Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia, Sanja Madzarevic Sujster said that this year the entire Western Balkans region is expected to grow by 3.2 percent.

“In Montenegro, we expect the growth to be at a level of 3.3 percent and it will largely be linked to the continuation of construction of the highway and a range of private investments underway in past three years,” said Madzarevic Sujster.

At a press conference, where the WB presented its Regular Economic Report for the Western Balkans “Faster growth, more jobs”, she said that in Montenegro compensation for mothers with three or more children should be reformulated and earnings, social benefits and pensions policies revised.
