We have extremely well predictions for 2007, because we are becoming well known on the international market. It is good that that is not happening too fast, because there are a lot of things which need to be prepared in order for us to welcome our guests in the right way, starting from the communal and traffic infrastructure, up to the quality of the total tourist offer. Montenegro in the future will not count tourists, but money, and it will analyze the quality which from year to year has to be better.
