Budva – President of the board of directors, Svetozar Marovic, has convoked a special Parliament of the share holders of the hotel enterprise “Budvanska Rivijera” for the 30th of December, at which the share holders should declare themselves about the foundation of the association with the limited responsibility “Soravia Budva resort”.
The contract about the joined investment in the reconstruction of the tourist lodgment “Slovenska plaza” and the construction of the new hotel, with the Austrian company “Soravia group”, is drafted and will find its place at the parliament of the share holders. The government, which is the major owner, will also give its opinion later.
In the new company “Soravia Budva resort”, the Austrian company and “Budva Riviera” would have a certain share of stocks, in which Budva has a guaranteed profit, as well as a part of the gained profit, and they would have to give the facilities of Slovenska plaza, while the Austrians would invest in the reconstruction of the tourist lodgment at least 24 millions of euros, and also to construct a hotel, close to the city pool, in which they would have to invest more than 40 millions of euros.
On the agenda of the special parliament, beside the “Soravia Budva resort” its place will also find the suggestion of the contract of the foundation of the “Soravia hotel Montenegro”.
As it was recently clarified by the minister of tourism, Predgrag Nenezic, it is not a privatization of Slovenska plaza, it is a contract limited to 21 year, after which the facilities of the tourist lodgment would again go back into the hands of “Budva Riviera”.
– Austrian company has a very good reputation in Europ. It exists for decades and it has some very important projects behind themselves – said Nenezic.
The assistant of the executive director of the HTE, Vule Tomasevic said that the Austrians will be obliged by the contract to take over all 225 workers of Slovenska plaza.
– If everything goes right, in the next three years Slovenska plaza should be reconstructed in phases. Having in mind that we are talking about a great complex of 2.500 beds, already at the beginning of the next season we would have completely renewed two wings of 600 beds – concluded Tomasevic.
