The most important thing for our future development in tourism is to have world brands and to be part of the overall world map of tourism. I hope that the market and guests, who are very satisfied with their visit to Montenegro, recognize us very easily, said Prime Minister Dritan Abazović at the presentation of the hotel construction project of the company "Magnum Development" - "Crowne Plaza Kolašin" and the ceremonial signing of the contract with the prestigious hotel operator IHG.
"People are now looking for unique places, clean air and clean rivers, they don't want big crowds and they want luxury completely compatible with nature, and I think that at this moment you couldn't have chosen a better place to open Crowne Plaza than Kolašin," said Abazović .
Representatives of the companies Magnum Development and IGH signed the contract, and Abazović expressed his satisfaction that after the Hayat, a world-famous hotel brand is coming to Montenegro.
"The development of the north is particularly important for the Government of Montenegro. I personally think that there is more potential in the north than in the south. And I expect that in the future the development of tourism will go more towards the north than towards the south because people are looking for peace, clean nature and unique places. The fact that your project is connected with health tourism is only more valuable because tourists change their habits and want to use their vacation to improve their health," said the Prime Minister.
He said that all investors, especially credible ones from the West, are more than welcome in Montenegro, and he promised the signatories of today's contract that he would do everything to ease the administrative procedures so that the hotel would be completed on time.
"We are a country destined for tourism and almost dependent on it. This means that it is the duty of every citizen to do everything in his power to make every foreigner feel at home. I hope that our citizens and institutions will not lack hospitality, that we will make decisions faster, that we will not create any problems with any administrative obstacles and that in 2024 we will witness the opening of the Crowne Plaza in Kolašin", said Abazović.
