Investment opportunities in Montenegro


Foreign businessmen have many business sectors to choose from when starting a business in Montenegro. Here are some investment opportunities in Montenegro:


1.    Tourism
In 2014, Montenegro recorded a total of 1.3 million tourists that visited the country. With a mild Mediterranean climate, the country has 240 sunny days each year. This is one of the reasons why the World Travel and Tourism Council predicted that investment in Montenegro in the field of tourism is going to be very profitable in the coming years.

2.    Mining
This is a good investment sector in Montenegro for businessmen who have large capitals. The government of Montenegro is awarding a concession to exploit the coal in the basin of Maoce and to construct a thermal power plant. The concession is to last for 45 years.

3.    Business zones
These are certain areas in the country where only specific business activities are allowed to operate. This is good for small and medium businesses that are engaged in light industries that cause minimal damage to the environment such as manufacturing and service activities.
