Montenegro is moderately ready in the field of public administration reform
“Montenegro’s EU agenda is focused on reforms in the rule of law. The legal framework in this area is now largely completed, and institutions established. The whole system of the rule of law now needs to produce more results, particularly to strengthen the balance of results in the fight against corruption and organized crime ” is it said in the report.
As estimated, progress in the chapters concerning the rule of law, which can be demonstrated with tangible results in the fight against corruption and organized crime, will continue to determine the pace of the accession negotiations.
