“Prime Minister Dusko Markovic assessed on the occasion of the first year of the Government’s work that the Government was successful, that it had achieved most of its goals, and in some departments more than planned. He noted that these results did not fall from the sky but were the result of a day-to-day work, in the atmosphere of never more aggressive political destruction by opposition parties that have boycotted Parliament’s work. At the beginning of his address, the Prime Minister recalled the key promises from the Exposé, which, as the then Prime Minister-designate, he presented to the MPs and the public.  In terms of the international affirmation of Montenegro, as the most important achievement, he singled out the full membership in the North Atlantic Alliance. We became the 29th member of the NATO, thus ensuring the security of our country, but also creating the preconditions for accelerated economic growth and development. Montenegro has irrevocably tied its future to today’s most powerful military and political alliance and got its seat at the table where decisions are being made – for the first time in its history. Therefore, I highlight this event as the most important achievement in the first year of the work of the Government, PM Markovic said.”(Full report in English available at Government of Montenegro)
