Montenegro aims for greater competitiveness

Meeting at the Regional Conference for Europe

3 May 2016, Antalya, Turkey - Darko Konjevic, General Director and Assistant Minister with Montenegro’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, met with FAO's Director-General today, on the eve of FAO’s 30th Regional Conference for Europe.

He provided an update on the status of Montenegro’s accession process to the European Union, and expressed his hope that three chapters (11, 12, 13) would be opened in June 2016. A priority for Montenegro is to increase competitiveness, especially in the area of organic agriculture and medicinal plants. These niche products were suitable for small-scale agriculture, he said, and requested support from FAO.
