Djukanovic cited the example of the Chinese enterprise that built Montenegro's first highway - the North-South Highway project, which is currently the largest and most expensive infrastructure project in Montenegro. "This project is not only very important for our economy, but also for improving the living standards of our people."

Djukanovic also said that Chinese companies have contributed to Montenegro's wine exports. "Montenegro is a traditional country that produces wine, and I know that there are very many wine producers in the market and the competition is very fierce, and I am very grateful that these Chinese companies are able to choose our Montenegrin wine."

Djukanovic stressed that "it is safe to say that we have had a very good cooperation with Chinese companies and we are very sure that we will need these extremely high-quality projects and cooperation in the future."

He noted that the currency used in Montenegro is euro, company registration is very fast, corporate income tax is the lowest in Europe, and the banking system is stable and reliable and open to investors from all over the world. "Although we are the smallest country in the Balkans, we have great potential for development and we want to realize these development opportunities with reliable partners."

"Sun Tzu, the famous Chinese philosopher, said that strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat." According to Djukanovic, in the face of the current world full of uncertainties, it is important to combine strategic thinking with concrete work, continuous efforts and enhanced cooperation to restore a healthy economy and society as soon as possible.
