German Chancellor Angela Merkel will visit Podgorica next week, after stops in Zagreb and Belgrade. Mrs. Merkel will meet with Prime Minister Igor Lukšić to discuss the ongoing process of EU integration.
Prime Minister Lukšić visited Chancellor Merkel in Berlin this March. During the visit, Mrs. Merkel affirmed her support for Montenegro, stating “We support the path of Montenegro into the European Union and NATO.”
Mrs. Merkel is traveling with a sixty member entourage, most of whom are business people. This trip will hopefully introduce them to some of the opportunities for business development in our nation.
