The Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, in cooperation with the Delegation of the European Union in Montenegro, organized the presentation of a new support program that also includes Montenegro - the SOCIEUX+ Program.

SOCIEUX+ is a technical cooperation instrument co-financed by the European Union, which supports the strengthening of inclusive social protection systems, labor and employment policies and encourages mutual exchange of knowledge and experience between EU member states and partner countries.

The State Secretary in that department, Edina Dešić, spoke at a meeting in the premises of the EU Delegation about the benefits of that program for Montenegro.

"Employment policies, social policies, special care for marginalized groups, including the RE population, women and youth are precisely the policies that have reached the top of the political agenda in the period after the pandemic caused by the Covid-19 virus, so the need for their improvement has increased further. In this context, it is necessary to further improve the labor market in accordance with the newly created circumstances, improve the quality of existing jobs, provide access to dignified work, as well as the development of various skills that will enable faster access to the labor market and reduce high unemployment," she pointed out, as announced by the Ministry.

She assessed that this is another confirmation of successful cooperation between Montenegro and European institutions and another step in the improvement of state administration on the way to the EU.

SOCIEUX+ represents additional support for the implementation of numerous programs that the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare implements in cooperation with the European Commission, as well as support for the initiated reforms in social and labor and employment policy, the department's announcement concludes.
