At the meeting they spoke about topics related to tourism, environment but also solving of problems of communal infrastructure, as well as about the topic related to preconditions of development of tourism.

– Plav has been signed in in the plan of a new platform of development of tourism in Montenegro, which will be a part of the new Master plan. That Master plan will try to attract as many tourists as possible. Promoting the entire span of activities both during the summer and during the winter in our mountains, and Plav has a great chance to benefit from that. It is important to protect Plav Lake and we are willing to provide the money for project documentation for solving this problem, and later we will provide money to solve problems with wastewaters because we have to preserve Lim and all other sources of water in this area – said Nenezic.
Sarkinovic added that the activities concerning Studies of construction, financing, and management of facilities – collectors for cleaning of wastewaters are in process, as well as that the Administration of waters of Montenegro has expressed readiness to take part in production of project documentation about the regulation of the river Grncar, and the project of protection of Plav Lake, while the treatment of hard waste material will be solved with construction of sanitary dump and recycling center in Berane, for municipalities of Rozaje, Berane, Andrijevica, and Plav.
– Plav has resources of exquisite value for the development of various types of tourism. One of the main problems is the fact that we don’t have sufficient accommodation capacities, and we have also communal problems. Except the renovation of the hotel “Plav Lake” accommodation capacities such as private mini hotels, small boardingh houses are also important – said Sarkinovic.
When we are talking about the water supply minister Nenezic has promised help to Plav municipality in the segment of project documentation and 57 millions of euros for the needs of chlorination of water.
He noted that the roads in the municipality are not on a satisfactory level and that the issue of construction of new traffic lines is the obligation of the Government and the Ministries in charge of that.
Nenezic thinks that the initiative for proclamation of Prokletje for a national park is good and that he hopes that the Government will already in September discuss about this initiative and that until the end of the year we will have a Law about the new National park.
THE ONLY HOTEL IN THE TOWN IS CLOSED
The meeting with the minister attended also the director of the enterprise Jastreb Goran Kalezic who is else the major owner of the hotel Plav Lake who said that the main reason for which the hotel is still not in function after the privatization is the fact that the Municipality doesn’t want to help him with his demands. He stressed that the Municipality is depriving him the right to work and that because of that the renovation of the hotel was stopped. The representatives of the local administration have replied that the demands of the new owner could not be fulfilled and that they do not fulfill the minimal conditions for work.
Minister Nenezic thinks that it is a misunderstanding and disharmony on relation investor, Municipality, Republic.
– We have agreed to form a work group which already in the first half of September will try to solve the problems between Municipality and HTE Plav Lake. That misunderstanding has to be solved as soon as possible in order for Plav to have accommodation capacities which is a precondition for development of tourism – said Nenezic.
