Rome – The representative of the American Government in the Italian parliament and the representative of the Italians in the world, Salvatore Ferinjo announced in an interview he gave for “Vijesti”, that the delegation of the American Italian entrepreneurs will soon visit Montenegro because they are seriously thinking about the possibility of investment.
One of the youngest members of the parliament in Italy is announcing that soon the conference for promotion of Montenegro will be held.
How come that the American and Italian firms got interested in investing in Montenegro?
– My interest for Montenegro was awaken by a Montenegrin diplomat who told me about his country in USA, so already several years ago for the first time I have visited Montenegro, and was thrilled with that Mediterranean pearl. Already then I started thinking about a stronger project of investments of American and Italian companies.
Can you tell us what those investments that you are talking about are?
– Mainly I am thinking about the serious investments in tourism. Montenegrin coast is one of the most beautiful ones in the Mediterranean. Natural beauties of Montenegro are not used enough. When I say this I don’t mean that you should build hotels and tourist complexes which would ruin the cleanness and beauty of that country, but on the contrary, work on the development of the healthy agro – tourism which is lacking in the high industrialized countries. Also, in my investment program there are investments in production which are being mentioned. In Montenegro you can find highly qualified labor force, experienced workers in production, whose services are cheaper than it is the case with the same qualification in the European Union. Not to speak about the general idea of the Montenegrin politicians who had the strength to implement euro as an official currency before the joining in the EU, and with that they have maximally eased all attempts of the foreign investments on their territory.
A lot of talk has been going on in Italy about the security of investment in the countries of Former Yugoslavia?
– For more than 15 years I am in the insurance and broker business and I know perfectly to see where there is a risk of investment. I can freely say that that there is no risk in Montenegro. I was personally convinced in the honesty of Montenegrins and their honor, so in this project which I am running, in a way I am a guarantee of the security of the investment. Unfortunately Montenegro for too long has been a victim of an distorted image, presented as a country which is filled with criminal and whose independence is a danger for the EU. Now everyone sees that those were fabrications which caused damage, but the time will show that in all those behind-the-scene games there is not a single one that is true. I see the future of Montenegro as Switzerland in the zone of the Mediterranean.
