13 August 2019 - The construction of the electric power infrastructure to power the future cable cars within the ski complex Cmiljača and Žarski began with the preparation for the installation of the 35/10 substation in Majstorovina in Bijelo Polje.

Prime Minister Duško Marković congratulated President of the Municipality Ranko Mišnić, President of the Municipal Assembly Dragomir Mrdak, members of the Municipal Assembly and citizens on the Municipality Day of Mojkovac - 12 August.

 "This year's holiday in Mojkovac is celebrated in the atmosphere of remarkable results of our country, both internally and externally. I am convinced that the citizens of Mojkovac recognise the efforts the Government is making to develop capital infrastructure and create the preconditions for more dynamic development and better quality of life for each individual. In addition to several other Government projects, the construction of the Žarski ski centre worth nearly 30 million euros will undoubtedly contribute to job creation and give impetus to the local economy," the Prime Minister's congratulatory message reads.

He added that the opportunity to emphasise that the special contribution to the success of our development vision is also provided by local management through a constructive relationship in addressing all outstanding issues in the best interests of citizens of Mojkovac.

"Recognising such efforts, the Government has increased the percentage of income tax concessions by amending the Law on Financing Local Self-Government, which will, among other things, increase the Mojkovac municipality's budget by more than half a million annually euros. I am sure that together we are on the path of overall progress which is quite obvious, I congratulate the citizens of Mojkovac once again on the municipal holiday," Prime Minister Duško Marković noted.

The construction of the electric power infrastructure to power the future cable cars within the ski complex Cmiljača and Žarski began with the preparation for the installation of the 35/10 substation in Majstorovina in Bijelo Polje.

Preliminary works include construction work, to construct a structure for future power equipment.

The value of this investment, which will be financed by the Government of Montenegro through the capital budget, amounts to more than 1.18 million EUR, and the contractor committed to finishing the works within six months from the beginning of the work, i.e. early next year.

The project is part of the activities that the Government is continuously implementing in order to valorise the tourism potential of the north of the country. The installation of cable cars at ski resorts Cmiljača and Žarski has already been contracted and the estimated value of complete investments in the two sites is more than 52 million EUR.
