07 February 2019 - At its latest session, the Government of Montenegro passed the Programme for Stimulating Water Supply Projects in 2019, which foresees the allocation of 970.000 EUR to finance water supply networks construction and another 80.000 EUR for financing other obligations and needs in the field of water management.
The programme includes the construction of 31 water supply networks in order to create better living and working conditions in the rural area, as well as further development of agriculture. Priority was given to rural water supply networks, which were financed in the previous period, as well as new requests for water supply, submitted by municipalities.
Prime Minister Marković pointed to the significant continuous multi-million dollar investment of the Government in the overall infrastructure in local governments - road, communal, social as well as numerous capital projects. He reiterated that the Law on Financing Local Self-Government further strengthened the possibilities of municipalities, especially less developed ones, given the fact that this law has provided about 13 million EUR for this purpose.
"This is the relation of our policy towards the citizens, this is the contribution of the Government to the development of our rural areas and we want to ensure that citizens live better and develop their potentials," said Prime Minister Duško Marković.
