November 29, 2018 - The Montenegrin Government decided to give the Shipyard Bijela a concession for 90 years at the consortium of Porto Montenegro and Damen. By the end of the month, the Government should sign a concession contract to launch a mega-yacht service, and at the next stage make mega yachts at the site of the former Adriatic Shipyard Bijela, announced Prime Minister Duško Marković in an interview with TVCG on the occasion of two years of government work.
Last year, Porto and Damen bought a part of the Shipyard Bijela infrastructure, which introduced bankruptcy in mid-2015. As Markovic said earlier, by a concession act, the contractor will manage the Shipyard Bijela for 90 years with an investment of around 20 million euros in the next three years and new employment for people from this area.
At today's session, the Government agreed to sign a contract with the consortium Adriatic Marinas and Damen, who have purchased part of the infrastructure of the Shipyard Bijela for 30 years.
"Instead of a company in bankruptcy, overhauling yachts and mega-yachts - there are development and new jobs. Investments of €20m in three years," says Government's Twitt.
It is a space in the closed circuit of the shipyard with operational shore and gulls, covering 108 thousand squares. The surface under construction works a little over 25 thousand square meters.
Adriatic Marinas and Damen will pay EUR 2.5 million to the bankruptcy debtor within 70 days of the conclusion of the contract, and most of this amount will be charged to the Montenegrin Commercial Bank.

24 November 2018 - In the northern coastal area of Montenegro, an annual Mimosa Festival has been conducted starting the first weekend of February since 1969. The Mimosa Festival is a traditional manifestation that celebrates the mimosa flower and the coming spring season. This is one of the most important tourist manifestations in the region that gathers hundreds of locals and numerous guests to the gorgeous port city of Herceg Novi to celebrate the sunny days that lie ahead.

Businessmen and the Municipality of Herceg Novi have a common interest in celebrating the 50th Mimosa Festival with high-quality content and by attracting the highest number of visitors to the city - it was concluded at today's meeting of representatives of local government and local companies in the Grand Hall of the Municipal Assembly. The new decade of this Holiday will be a sign of expansion to new European markets. The program was supported by the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism of Montenegro and the National Tourism Organization of Montenegro.

At the invitation of the local administration, Herceg Novi’s businessmen took part in the meeting with the representatives of the Municipality and provided suggestions on how the traditional Festival should be improved in order to make its commercial effects more visible. Businessmen expressed their intention to keep their stores open during the celebration of the Festival and stressed that every event that creates demand for products and services aside from the main tourist season is important to them.

As concluded at the meeting, the Mimosa Festival significantly improved the offer of Herceg Novi as a tourist destination, but in recent years its economic and promotional effects are not at the level that this event deserves. In this regard, it is crucial to involve the city’s business people in activities and programs.

The framework of the program was created even before the summer, so the tourist season was used to share propaganda material. Package arrangements have been created and starting in December, intensive marketing campaigns will be launched in the cities of the region.

The participants of the meeting agreed that the Mimosa Festival should expand further over the regional borders. Starting with this year, the Festival growth will be achieved by the promotional Caravan of Mimoza which will reach Budapest and Vienna, by organizing dinners dedicated to the culture and gastronomy of European cities and countries, by the participation of foreign groups in the program, and by cooperation with the partner towns and embassies in Montenegro.

As concluded, the new decade of the Mimosa Festival will be in the wake of the expansion to new European markets, which is necessary to ensure the bright future of this event.
