The State Secretary in the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism (MORiT), David Davidović, reckons that this year’s summer tourism season represents a turning point in terms of revenues, as the Ministry expects to collect biggest profit from tourism, exceeding €1bn.
“The information collected by the MORiT indicates this year’s summer season has been pretty successful. When it comes to collective accommodation, tourist arrivals have increased by 13%,” Davidović said.
According to the latest official data, during the first six months of this year, Montenegro generated 10% more revenues from tourism.
“The situation in July was the same as last year. As for the tourist arrivals in August, we recorded a 2-9% growth. We expect a successful postseason based on the announcements of hotel owners, stating that most of their capacities have already been booked in September and greatest part of October.”
Davidović reflected on a great deal of events held on the Montenegrin coast and north of the country this year, compared to last year.
