State Secretary for European Integration and Chief Negotiator, the Ambassador Aleksandar Andrija Pejovic, said that the report of the European Commission (EC) on Montenegro most positive so far.

Pejovic introduced today to the ambassadors of EU member states the EC Report for Montenegro.

He believes that this is “the most positive report so far for Montenegro as evidenced by the ratings of continuous progress in fulfilling political and economic criteria, and in terms of achieving readiness for membership of the 33 negotiating chapters.”

Chief negotiator stressed that the report was a good indicator of the results achieved, but also a useful guideline in what direction the work on the reforms should be continued, and that it comes at the right time as an important guideline for the work of the new pro-European government.

“He pointed out that the European Commission has recognized the continued progress in meeting the political criteria where significant results were achieved, both in the rounding of the legislative framework and the establishment of institutions, and in terms of sustainable results balance in all fields. He stressed that significant results have been achieved in terms of public administration reform, and that the public administration reform Strategy defined the further steps to improve its work and preparations for future membership in the EU,” the statement said.

Montenegro, as stated, has also made progress in the area of economic criteria, both with regard to functioning of the market economy and in terms of ability to cope with pressure and market forces within the EU.
